Restore Points

by tkappers In reply to Restore Points

Restoring to a date of long ago is not possible since the .cab (back-up files) have been written over by the newer restored data. In other words, it is like a FIFO, first in first out. The only way to recover data, that I know of is if the data has not been written over. And in this case since it has been a long time the newer restored data had to overwrite the old data otherwise your hd would be full!
