    Reverse a restore


    Just restored a small laptop which didn't take too long. Unfortunately the outlook backup file I made has disappeared. Is there any way I reverse a restoration to the earlier file. copy doc to a memory stick, then finish the restoration?

    I assume we are speaking about restore points. Correct? It shouldnt have affected your files. Did you try another restore point? Check Previous Versions also.

    I agree with xaccell restore points does not affect personal files.

    System restore should create a restore point for you to revert back changes but this will not restore any missing personal files.

    You can use ShadowExplorer browse and recover backup files created by system protection.

    Yeah, restore points don't mess with personal files. Something else is going on.

    Hi, Thanks for the comments so far. I used Macrium for the restoration which seems to over-written the saved file, which I put in 'downloads'.
