  wis 12:08 03 Nov 2008

friend has a problem with a photo tool/software
where by he states all his photos just vanish
what hes been doing is going back a few days in restore all ok now the problem
this happened on oct 30th he left it to nov 2nd
to restore but states he can only get the nov page
on the calender trying to click back to oct does
nothing,hes panic stricken wifes 3000 on photo
gone walk about any thoughts to sort out

I expect the photos, or at least some of them, will be .jpg's or even .jpeg's. Tell him to go to Start>Search and type in .jpg then click on search.

thanks technotiger
that will give him some relief im sure
the restore problem is there no way around that
to get oct points back

If clicking on the small arrows to go back monthly does not make it go back, then I am afraid nothing can be done about that - it would mean that there are no Restore Points in the earlier month to go back to.

Is System Restore actually Enabled?

In most cases, SR provides a restore point if it is done manually or software or hardware is installed or uninstalled.

It doesn't create a restore point if it is unwarranted.

im sure restore enabled he has said hes had to
restore his photo back a few times,but ive
not checked yet, ill put that on the list for
tonight + disc space usage worth me checking what
that is set to ,hdd size also

also he did say he gets auto updates, so that would create a restore point every update tuesday
if that is correct why no point in oct,ill find
out better tonight, hes a trucker so no set time home

Hmm, I am not really sure what you mean when you say "he has said hes had to
restore his photo back a few times,"

One does not normally just restore a photo? unless you mean an image of his hard drive - which is not System Restore, but more like using Acronis or similar.

it program opens nothing no photos then he goes restore photos back,just spoken to him your

If *.jpeg will not find them you need to download Campicrestore. You will need a very big USB drive to save the to
