System Restore Point – Restoring

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Every time you download or install a new game, application, or software update, you make changes to your Computer.

Sometimes that change may make your System unstable.

Have you ever wanted to go back to the way it was?

With System Restore, you can.

By now I guess you all should know how to Create Restore Point, if you don’t please check out my post on System Restore Point – Creating.

System Restore works a lot like the Undo command in Microsoft Word.

You can use System Restore to remove any System changes that were made since the last time you remember your Computer working correctly.

Most importantly System Restore does not affect your personal data files (such as Microsoft Word documents, browsing history, drawings, favourites, or email) so you won't lose changes made to these files.

So how do we Restore our System from the Restore Point we Created?

For Windows XP User:

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and Click on System Restore.

Select ‘Restore my computer to an earlier time’.

A list of Restore Point Created will be listed down for you to select which to use.

The Calendar on the left will have dates in bold, this means there’s a Restore Point Created on that day.

By selecting the day, it will show the Restore Points available for that date in the breakout to the right of the Calendar.

Select the Restore Point you want and Click ‘Next’.

For Windows Vista User:

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and Click on System Restore.

There will be 2 options,

'Recommended Restore' and 'Choose a different restore point

If you select ‘Choose a different restore point’, you will be given various most recent Restore Point to choose from.
You can also very view Restore Point older than 5 days.

Browse through and find the Restore Point you want to Restore and Click ‘Next’.

For both options, you will then be give the Option of which Disk you want to Restore.
('Recommended Restore' option will skip the step of choosing Restore Point)
Usually we will only Restore the System Disk but you can Restore other Disk too if the option is enabled.

Click ‘Next’ after you have done selecting which Disk to Restore.

You will be asked to confirm the details of the System Restore and details of Restore Point.

Click ‘Finish’ if you have Confirmed the details and sure that you wish to Continue with the Restore.

Upon Clicking ‘Finish’ you will de prompt or warned again if you really want to do a System Restore.

My 2 cents worth:

One of the excellent features of System Restore is the ability to undo any restore performed.
Restore Point is Created Automatically when you do a System Restore in case you want to go back to Original Configuration.

Restore Points is also Created Automatically whenever there’s a Significant Change made to the Operating System such as Installation of New Software or Driver.
