SR not always 100%, as it varies oits intensity in its restore points. You need to access the System Volume Information file to make sure you have an adequate 'RP'
The RP should have a'snapshot' file associatd. Also, if you revert quite far back in the RP's a conflict is created bt he amount of time the computer has changed in the registry. You can undo the system restore you have carried out, and hopefullt search and include a more appropriate restore point.
With regard to the files missing, my advice would be to undo your SR and copy the files to CD-Rom prior to executing a more efficient restore. Hope this helps.
I recently restored my system because I couldnt figure out several things going wrong , and it seemed like I was missing some components but I wasnt sure which one(s).
a window popped up and I was under the impression all of my files would be backed up, but after restoring, the problem was fixed, but all of my movies, videos, music, and personal pictures were no longer in my documents.
I did however still have music and videos in "my downloads" folder which was located in the c drive.
I have a feeling all of these files are still on my computer somewhere because I am getting a low disk space message like before, but I wasnt expecting this becasue I assumed all of these files were completely gone.
Can anyone tell me if they are hidden somewhere, and if so, how do I retrieve them?
