It's a cool option - it lets you turn the clock back and restart your computer at a previous date - before you installed a program of deleted something and caused problems with your system.

It is also called Rollback by another application - rolling back the time to a previous day or time, obviously you lose any data/files/work done/saved since that time unless saved to a different drive.

Hope this helps

Yea, I would have to agree w/ riscy......

I use it quite a bit. Both the restore option and the "create restore point" option.

Usually before I install, uninstall, delete, or update anything major.

thanks =P
but i was referring to the restore option under the winXP setup ( when you reboot with the XP cd inside, it asks you if you would like to run system restore ), it asks me for a diskette...
has anyone done it before??
