    So i reccently i tried to delete ONE SINGLE thing on my desktop, but there was a bunch of checkmarks on the desktop icons and folders. so when i dragged the single file i tried to delete and put it in the recycle bin, it dragged everything in there. so immediately i thought and assumed: "go into recycle bin and take the files recently deleted out and put them back, but as soon as i opened the recycle bin all the folders and desktop icons were gone. I looked on google and tried to look for restore options, but they kept bringing me to system restore. so when i attempted to do a system restore it didnt have any dates saved, so i again attempted to make my own date and time to restore to. my luck is that since i just bought this laptop there weren't any saved dates and i tried to make my own but it only created one for today, the day im having an issue. can anyone give me some advice because i just lost some files that are heavily affecting my other files and software that im using on this laptop. thank you.

    what os are you using ? In windows 8.1 i can check the box to show more restore dates. And there is a automatic restore point.
    See attached file.
