    Advanced system restore and restore file locations


    I'm using windows 10 pro and am trying to get restore locations moved from and old drive to a new drive. I'm trying to figure out what folders and files I need to move and where to move them so I can have the restore points show when I open system recovery.
    Creating a system image isn't what I'm looking for and backing up files that I already have isn't what I'm looking for.
    I want to open system restore to use restore points from my old drive. How can this be done?

    :)

  2. system restore, no cd

    Mussels did not fail, those two are answers are very common with what you are describing. You can try to go back to a system restore point located in the help folder in control panel. Have you created any recent restore points?

    Deleted file restore software.

    I cant remember if it recovers old files OR leaves new files on the computer even after you do the restore. I havent used it in a while.

    Advanced system restore and restore file locations

    How do I disable system restore?

    all system restore is like a backup copy of your "c" drive so it can "restore" it to the way it was before you screwed it up or got a virus. it keeps certain restore points according to the disk space usage limits you set for it. default uses a lot of disk space and can have around 15+ seperate dates to select as restore points. i keep mine set on the first notch which for a 320gb hdd is around 3-4gb of space dedicated to restore file space and it gives me 7-8 dates for restore points which is plenty since i pick a restore date that only go back one or two days anyway.

    to turn it on or off you open it and to the left side it says "system restore settings" so open it and select to turn off system restore and apply. then i reboot and open system restore which prompts me to turn it on so i do then reset the abount of space/restore points i want.


    one thing to remember about system restore, it will remove things you added recently but it cant bring back something that has been deleted so if you delete or uninstall the wrong thing and your trying to get your files back or a program quits working on you, system restore cant help you.
