Say you download an EXE file on June 1st at noon. Ai 1 PM you do a system restore to a point saved at 11 AM. That EXE is gone, even if you never ran it. If you modified a batch file before 1 PM it will revert to its previous version. Same with ini files.
If you run a program like INCTRL5 to track what changes occur with a system restore, it deletes the temp files and reverts the ini files.
I once made a change to the directory structure on drive E: or F: - there were only data files on this drive - no system stuff. After a system restore, the directory structure was back to its previous state. How annoying. How nosy the system is. Leave my stuff alone, please.
If I compile an EXE, and do a system restore to a time before its creation, it will be deleted. Really, leave my stuff alone!
Has anyone noticed this?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
