I had a question that somebody might answer.

I had a recent system Recovery due to a system failure.
Now, some of my files were left untouched after restarting, but most of my applications and major software were deleted. I still have the icons, without the real software installed though.

Now, when i check my C:\ drive, i says that 35 Gb in use, 71 is free.... 5 Gb used in drive D:\ which is the recovery drive...

I am woundering if my applicatiions and games my be found somewhere in the system, burried under some recovery consule or something...

if somebidy knows something, i would appriciate any help!!!

No your going to have to 1. reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point that you returned your system state to. 2. you can undo the system restore.

That's why I don't use System Restore anymore, if the problem is that bad then just re-install Windows.

I also don't use system restore. It is a resource hog and it makes ones drives slow It is pretty usefull in the corporate field - but if you have a decent machine you could still use it.

I have seen system restore recover some systems that have been badly beaten up by viruses and spyware - so it has its uses. If your system bombs out really bad though - I normally end up re-installing the OS.
