This is by no means a solution to your issue. Rather, it's a gripe of sort. I've never been able to get a system restore to save with Windows. When I do, it seems to not want to restore the system. This is why I switched to making image backups of the drive where I store my OS. I have a separate drive for programs, so restoring the drive with the OS is all I need to do.

iCloud is an "Apple" product, Office is obviously Microsoft so I can't speak on how both Apple and Windows get along here.

I use system restore all the time and it works like a champ for me. Like everything else it depends on what your purpose for using it is.

And before all the "backup experts" chime in, a reminder.... System Restore is NOT designed to be a "backup" solution. That's NOT its purpose. And any talk of backups with this and that means you don't understand System Restore. Sorry.

Agree that system restore is not a backup solution. I'm going to have to check more closely at why my system restore doesn't work like it should. I would much prefer performing a restore for subtle changes rather than having to restore from a backup copy every time something small happens to my system.

@jvickers You may not be aware of two features in the MR paid edition. The first is Incremental backups (starts with a full image copy, and then incremental backup on a schedule that you select). Second is Rapid Delta Restore. With these two the restore is very fast.

I know about the incremental backup. I avoid that because I want to take up the least amount of space possible. Not sure it that is the case, though. I didn't know about the Rapid Delta Restore. I'll have to look into it. Thanks for mentioning it.

I would much prefer performing a restore for subtle changes rather than having to restore from a backup copy every time something small happens to my system.

One thing I found is System Restore works if you keep things simple. I use System Restore to do a quick test of drivers or apps. If they work, I don't need to do a restore. If there are issues, I'll do some light basic troubleshooting, and then use System Restore if I can't resolve the issue immediately. Key world being "immediately".

Also... a major difference between System Restore and a "backup" is System Restore does not backup "user data and documents". If you deleted a personal file, a System Restore isn't going to get that file back. System Restore just backs up the registry and system files to be returned to their previous state before the restore point was created.

With that, if the OP was/is hoping to retrieve some lost data from their Outlook files. I'm afraid System Restore can't do that.

I'm not sure anything would restore deleted data from Outlook if you emptied the trash since Outlook synchronizes. That might not be what the OP was looking for, but as you probably know, Outlook can be irretrievable.

Also, I figure out what was happening to my restore points. It was trying to pull from a folder that didn't exist and not my C: drive for some reason. I deleted that erroneous folder from its search and turned it on for the C: drive. I couldn't do that when that folder was there for some odd reason.

Yeah, that's true considering synchronization. That said, there usually is a delay between syncs so even if you deleted something, there is an "off-chance" you could retrieve it from the server before the sync happens and it's deleted there.

At any rate, System Restore can't restore what it never backed up :confused:

Also, I figure out what was happening to my restore points. It was trying to pull from a folder that didn't exist and not my C: drive for some reason. I deleted that erroneous folder from its search and turned it on for the C: drive. I couldn't do that when that folder was there for some odd reason.
Well again, if this is a user created folder, System Restore wasn't going to retrieve it anyway since System Restore only deals with the Registry and System files. So, anything not of the registry or system files, System Restore is NOT what you want in hopes of retrieving personal data files. This is where the need for a "backup" program begins ;)

I know about the incremental backup. I avoid that because I want to take up the least amount of space possible. Not sure it that is the case, though. I didn't know about the Rapid Delta Restore. I'll have to look into it. Thanks for mentioning it.
Some real experiences:
- did a full backup this afternoon (60.4 GM on disk, image copy is 21.6 GB)
- applied today's CU update
- did an incremental backup (2.4 GB)
Could not expect it to be any smaller.

Thanks. I'll have to consider the incremental backup. My full backup of my C: drive is something like 350GB, so I incremental backup of smaller size certainly would assist me.

    Maybe I'll make room somewhere and connect to the Dev channel if possible.

Yeah, that's the difference between initial and changed. But the issue isn't about backups it's about System Restore :wink:

Try system restore within safe mode. It often completes in safe mode when it fails normally.

@Dru2 What’s with the hostility? No need to ask your question in such a curt manner.
To answer your question: Safe mode with networking.

I don't know how you got "hostility" for asking a simple question??? Sorry I didn't frame it to your exacting specifications :oops:

Anyway, yes, you are correct, it works in Safe Mode with Networking. But you can also just go Advance Settings before getting to Safe Mode and restore from there.

Peace :cool:

Perhaps your comment - How did "you" get it to work??? - with the emphasis on the word ‘you’ gave me that impression. That is where I read the hostility. There was no need for the emphasis.
