How to Recover Deleted Restore Points (5 Steps)

By TS Jordan

Restore points are artificial points in time created by the System Restore program within your operating system, designed to allow your computer to recover from fatal errors by turning back the clock to reconfigure the system to match its status where the point was made. Where restore points have been deleted through intentional or unintentional conduct, they can be recovered through the use of file recovery software.

Step 1

Navigate to a recovery software program, Glary Undelete or Restoration, and download a file (See Resources).

Step 2

Double-click on the downloaded installation file.

Step 3

Follow the onscreen instructions to install the program.

Step 4

Open the program and click on the C drive.

Step 5

Click on the restore point file and press the "Recover" button to place it back on your hard drive.
