    Hello
    So i found this topic http://forums.techguy.org/all-other-software/946729-recovering-deleted-firefox-history.html but because it was closed i couldnt ask there, can i use windows back up to create a system image ? Or only programs like Winhex will make a image disc that is gonna work with ffshr
    also when i go to cmd and type file directory for ff3hr and then ff3hr -i ... i get error message
    that ff3hr isnt recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Given the problems the poster from that thread had, I don't see why you would want to use ff3hr at all but it sounds to me like you didn't install it. In Computer/Windows Explorer open the folder in which ff3hr should be installed. Is it there? Is what's there an executable file, or is it maybe still a zipped archive?

    As for the system image, that depends on what type of image you want. Many backup programs (including Windows 7 Backup) will make images, but they ignore areas of the hard disk that purportedly contain no data. Forensic imaging programs copy those areas too-and that's what it sounds like Winhex is. (I'm not familiar with that program though, so I could be wrong.)

    Hi well i want to use ff3hr to get back deleted history, and i extracted it so its not zipped anymore, and as far as i know you dont install it you just open it with cmd, right ? Does it matter in which location i extracted it ? Or it has to be in the same folder as the image of the disk that i made ?

    Well i will try first with the image i made using windows backup if its not gonna work i will try using winhex. Thank you for help
