Used system restore & it will only take me back to the recent restore which was a month ago. I would like to go back to the way the pc was on the day that it was purchased or within a month of the purchase date
My son has been on here & I am wondering if by accident he has deleted all previous system restores that i have done
Hi, System Restore will only keep restore points depending upon how much space you have allocated, Open system restore and click on system restore settings this will show you how much space has been allocated. System restore automatically deletes restore points once the space has filled up and they cannot be recovered. Cheers, Bill
I am surprised you have a system restore date for a month ago. There is only a limited amount of space given for system restore data and once it is full the oldest restore date is automatically deleted.
But as Powerless says if you have recovery disks or all the disks you need you can format your hard drive and reinstall everything you need.
Morning rins36, What's happened to the restore CD that came with the PC, or should have! HP usually have a hidden partition on the Hard drive, but need the CD to access it. This will put your operating system and drivers back to how they were the day you bought it. j.
