System Restore is a feature built into Windows that periodically creates restore points or backups of system files and / or user files so that you can restore your system to a previous state if something goes wrong.
Typically, Windows creates these system restore points automatically before certain events, such as: for example, before installing new software, updating a driver, installing Windows updates, etc. If none of these events occurs, Windows creates a restore point every seven days.
For files, System Restore keeps a copy of the file or folder when it changes, but only when a restore point is created. You can then revert to a previous version of a file or folder simply by right-clicking the file or folder.
Don’t think of System Restore as a file and folder backup solution as it is nowhere near as reliable as using Windows backups or third-party backup software.
What Is This Dfor You Mean?
Hopefully not enough – System Restore is only used when your computer won’t start, blue screens or random events in programs and cannot be fixed in any other way. We hope you never need it! Regardless, I have visited clients countless times and resolved their system restore problems!
Fix 1: System Restore Enabled
If there are no system restore points, it may be because the system restore utility was manually disabled. If you disable System Restore, all previously created points will be deleted. It is enabled by default.
Follow the instructions below to make sure everything is working properly during system restore.
For Windows XP:
- Click Start> Control Panel.
- Click System.
- Click the System Restore tab.
