System Restore.

I have been trying to do a " System Restore" on my pc, XPHome sp2" but cannot create a restore date prior to todays date. I have tried by clicking the "Create an earlier time," box and also the "Create a restore point" box but neither will work. They will only restore to todays date. Any ideas please. Meshuga.

Not sure if this is one of the legacy's of SP2 as I have not installed it. Maybe you need to restor System files from manufacurers recovery disk using the nondestructive system recovery method.

Have you also clicked to go back month(s) wise?

If you installed any new programs etc recently there should also be an SR point on that date and time.

SR doesn't always revert back to a wanted SR instead of the current day if there is no advantage in doing so, as I've found out on one or two occasions.

No, it is not a legacy of SP2 at least as far as I am aware....:-)

Seems that if anything goes wrong with an XP system no matter what the reason or area, there's always someone who snaps up the opportunity to blame SP2 if it's been installed.

I'm not sure if I am reading you correctly, but when you say you can't "Create a Restore Point" do you mean you can't "Restore" Because you cannot "Create" a restore point for an ealier time, only for today,at this time.

Hi Rawprawn.Yes, I am trying to put my PC back to a date before yesterday 15-12-04 cannot do so because it will not access any day before today, 16-12-04.

Rawprawn, If I click on Restore to an earlier time it will not do so. Mshuga.

Go to start, control panel, system and then click on system restore. Check that system restore is actually on, if the box is ticked then its been shut off.

  Meshuga 15:31 16 Dec 2004

The box is not ticked therefore system restore is ON.

Are there any Restore Points showing (In bold fonts) for dates previous to today ?

  Meshuga 15:41 16 Dec 2004

Rawprawn, No None, only the 16th, today.
