System Restore Question

Help needed, please.

Had some problems w my puter on Jan 3. Tried system restore (to a prior date), but it would not work. Disabled system restore in the hope of clearing it - then lost all restore dates prior to Jan 3. How can I get the older restore dates (prior to Jan 3) back? Thanks in advance.

Note: Please, please, please - if you are a new member, please do not post typewritten or otherwise links - or override the rules & post the link in your signature.

Thank you miniman.

Added note - a newbie posted a typewritten link - it was deleted by Andy M (thank you). Then the direct link to the member's site was posted in their signature (under 20 posts). When I have a chance I will follow up w Administration. Meanwhile, I would be most appreciative & grateful for any help in restoring my computer. Sorry - I am beside myself, having been unable to access, & then lost, recipes I've saved for years.

Your firewall and/or antivirus software would prevent that. Are they turned on and updated?

If the disk is not bootable you can bring it somewhere to have the information copied or install it as a slave drive on another system.

The answer is No. You probobly saw this message:

You have chosen to turn off System Restore. If you continue, all existing restore points will be deleted, and you will not be able to track or undo changes to your computer.
