Today I used system restore for the first time every.
It worked surprisingly well.
I downloaded some program called pcmark2002 or something like that.
A benchmark programs for PCs. When I tried to run the full version of it, computer kept on rebooting and rebooting with no video signal. I nearly had to to a clean install just to get a hold of it.
But then I was able to get it to boot into safe mode, which by accident I was able to use the system restore feature.
A great feature I might add.
However I selected a date that was too fat back.
Recently I have cleaned up my computer and reorganized a lot of stuff. In the past I downloaded a lot of programs and just installed them any where under no directory and it created a supreme mess.
So I clean it up and removed the programs I no longer use. Defraged the hard drive and said good buy to such clutter, and porno.
Then after the system restore it was all back. Scary almost. actually no almost, simply scary.
Is there a way to use system restore to go forward in date?
Basically I f-ed up my computer today on the 23rd and I went back to the 3rd just because.
Since then I have downloaded large games that I currently use (well not any more I guess).
Can I use restore to go to a date prior to 11/3/03?
