    I've dug up some information on System Restore that you might find helpful.

    Protecting Files During System Restore

    In this column, I'd like to go into greater depth on System Restore and give you some cautions on what to expect when you use it. Joli Ballew has written an excellent column on System Restore, and I don't want to replicate that, but instead, talk about some of the details that aren't immediately obvious when you're working with System Restore.

    To understand which file types were preserved and which ones weren't, I did a little experiment.

    Thanks, StevieO - also other good links from that page.

    I would be interested in knowing if there are those who would use System Restore to roll back in case a virus infected the computer.

    regards,
