  1. System Restore - Deleting user files.


    Hi there, My computer keeps freezing every couple of months and I need to format it. I have a lot of software that I need for my work and they take a long time to download. I want to use System Restore to go back to when I formatted and installed the software. I know System Restores helps with that but is there an option to format the disk and delete everything that was installed including music, photos, videos, personal documents? Basically anything that was not on the computer when the restore point was created I want to be deleted and formatted. Basically I want a clean window install

    :)

    Deleted file restore software.

    Shute I never thought about system restore. But its been more than a week now, don't know if I can go back that far. But even then will it put back user files?

    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.

    How to delete inactive System Image Restore Points in System Restore

    Windows 10 64-bit.
    When I click "show more restore points" in System Restore I see a bunch of old "system image restore points" that were deleted in past and do not correspond to any currently active restore points. Clicking any of these old restore points, I simply get an error message saying they could not be found, and to select another restore point instead.I would like to delete these restore points listings but have been unable to do so.
    So far, I have tried steps mentioned below without any luck :

    Disk Cleanup through (CSystem Restore - Deleting user files. :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CSystem Restore - Deleting user files. :)
    Disk Space Usage to minimum (slider button all the way to the left then 'Delete all restore points for this drive'),
    Delete all shown Restore points in CCleaner (the problem ones do not show here),
    Reset Windows Backup to Default in Windows 10 with 'Reset_Windows_Backup.bat' utility.

    Any suggestions highly welcome.
