System Restore vs. Previous Version

I've tried google this but could not find a clear answer. What is the significance between System Restore and Previous Version? I'm aware that not all system enable Previous Version but how are these two linked ?

    System Restore = whole system state back to a restore point, Previous Version(Volume Shadow Copy) = single files, typically enabled on a file share.  They are complementary recovery systems.

    Thank You!!
    just to clarify, System Restore is enabled in WinXP only, and Previous Versions are enabled in all other version except WinXP.. is that correct?

    I google that System Restore contains Previous Versions though not all OS have Previous Versions, such as Windows? I'm just trying to understand this stuff and the more I research, the more confused I become.

    Go through the A+  Courses from Professor Messer that I listed below.  These videos are free, and they provide a brief overview of computer basics.  The videos should help you understand how system restore works.  Good Luck!
