The system restore point has been around for quite some time. Microsoft created the system restore point so that users could create a snapshot of their Windows XP system registry. This snapshot could be called up at a later date and restored if instability occurred.
Many individuals do not use the Windows XP system restore, which is unfortunate. System restore is a powerful tool for those who make frequent changes and optimization to their Windows XP operating system. In the unfortunate instance instability or crashing occurs, the Windows registry can be restored.
Do not mistake a system restore point for a “complete rescue” of a users critical data. System restore merely images the system registry at the time of setting the restore point. Individuals should also have a solid backup plan in place for all critical system data.
Setting a system restore point is essential prior to making any major modifications to a Windows XP system.
