System Restore

  Thomo1 09:45 22 Jan 2005

For a few reasons that aint important enough to write about i want to restore my system to the start of December.

I have just put BB on my system tho.

If i restore my system will i lose my BB settings etc and if i have to re-install it will i have to wait another x amount of days again before i can use it while wanadoo set things up??

in a nut shell i re-formatted my HD in late November.

Since then About the end of Dec my pc has just grumbled non stop about many different things.

Most of the software i have will be on the restore point i want to go back to but my BB will not.

Will i lose it if i restore???

If i save BB onto disk will that be gud enuf??

If i just restore, then re-install BB, will i have to wait for wanadoo to do their stuff like i had to when i first installed my BB???

No, you will not lose BB.

I have BB, I have System Restored many times and BB is NOT affected.

Your Wanadoo a/c will exist whatever you do with your computer...... So after reinstalling the BB modem you should be able to quote a/c details and password at the appropriate places when you re-establish connection with Wanadoo.

Sorry, ignore my last post, I've thought about this again.

Yes, you probably will lose your BB because it represents system/file changes made AFTER the time you will be restoring to.

However, after restoring, you will have to re-install your BB/modem software but you will not have to wait for Wanadoo to do anything. Your 'phone line is now BB enabled and System Restore has no effect on that.
