XP Restore

  Liza 13:41 08 Mar 2005

When I used the Millennium OS I never had success with Restore, so had to make use of GoBack. I later discovered that there was indeed a problem with ME.

Recently I had a problem with XP and tried to use the Restore facility but was surprised at somewhat the same result ‘restore was not successful, try another restore point’. I tried all of the highlighted dates with no success. However I tried the date (day) I was actually doing the restore and this worked! What was the use of that day’s restore, it would not go back to things as they were. Please can someone guide me on this. Thanks

hmmm... I hate System Restore, thus it is turned off on my system....

I believe that System Restore will only work if it can "see" any changes in your registry's and hard-disk's structure, which Microsoft hasn't made a good job of getting it to work....lol

Best to either use Aronis True Image or stick to GoBack if I was you...

Thanks mattyc_92 I'll reinstall Go Back.
