I have successfully used System Restore on Windows XP many times but latest attempts have failed. When attempting to Restore the creen indicates that all is going well, the sytem closes down and reopens but I then receive a message that Restore for the date in question failed. I have tried several different restore dates without success.
I am not sure whether the data has been deleted and if so how or whether it has suddenly become inaccessible. I have created Restore points after the problem for testing purposes and they seem to work OK.
I do not think so since I have tried a number of different dates including some that were previously successful. If it is a question of corrupt data then the data for all dates has been corrupted and I am unaware of the possible cause.
