lost backups
« on: October 23, 2012, 11:39:47 am »
I performed a system recovery with Acronis and noticed I lost my Tweak restore points.
I checked my system restore and they were there. I guess the obvious is that the retore points were there when Acronis took its snapshot but for the date I picked, Tweak was not there.
I guess there is no way to retrieve them - is recuva possible?
Thank you

I dont know why Acronis didnt back them up. You will need to check how Acronis is backing up :wink:

As for getting the old ones back, no you cant. but at the same time you dont really want very old reg backups. You want to keep fresh ones and when something messes up you go back to the newest backup.

The reason why is after you do a lot of windows updates, changes to the system and so fourth and then restore a very old reg backup you can end up messing up the system.

It is best that before you do anything major do a reg backup, or the daily backups work great. :-)
