View Full Version : If I did a System Restore.....
If I did a system restore to say, when I first got my laptop, would I loose any of my pictures/music/videos?
you should back them up to separate drive (flash drive - DVD - external drive - or other non-system drive) to be on the safe side. I suppose you may, considering I've system restored second hand machines for friends and it recovered previously deleted files.
out of curiosity, what is the reason for doing a system restore? if there are performance gains you are looking for, or a virus perhaps - you could run and post the results of ardiag.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/ardiag.exe) and diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) so that we can point you in the correct direction for addressing those (or other) issues without having to perform a system restore. ;)
Ok, I'll put my files on a disk then :) And its because MSN seems to hate me, possibly a virus, so I thought maybe doing a system restor may fix it :) Thanks Spikejones :hug:
just run those applications and post the report. you may be replacing the registry entries, but the virus may stay intact on your system.
They will not disappear, but I have learnt to know that it is possible for it to happen.
System Restore is designed to leave your personal files intact. But when mucking about with any system files or restoration, always backup; anything can happen.
