Restore Points (windows xp)
Can you select restore points to delete ??? or do they drop off ???
I make a restore point every time, before I install my virus update DAT files, I must have a load of the restore points
floating around, I found an option to delete all but the last one, but I have a friend who claims one of his restore points
did not work, and he had to back up a couple to get back going ????. Is it still important to do the Regbak ?
or dose the restore point also do all that ... Thanks for any assistance... RichardR.J.B. Phillips III

Re: Restore Points (windows xp)
When the amount of disk space configured as the maximum (right click My Computer, select Properties | System restore) is reached XP will delete the oldest restore point when it needs to create another. It is likely that you do not need to make a restore point before update DAT files. For more information about System Restore see Frequently Asked Questions Regarding System Restore in Windows XP.
