    Hello,

    I would like to do a system restore from awhile ago.I tried to go back to the point I wanted to and It will only let me go back to August 2011 and not to June of 2011 where I lost some information.

    Is there any way to go back to June 2011 with the system restore?

    Thank You
    Ron

    Depending on how you have System Restore set up, it will create a certain number of restore points.

    As new restore points are created, older restore points are removed.

    You cannot go back to a restore point that's 2 months older than the oldest saved restore point.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    If you have personal data in your computer that's important and irreplaceable, you should back it up on a regular basis to an external hard drive or to CD-R's/DVD-R's or to both.
