System Restore

I am trying to use the System Restore application to retrieve graphics files on my external E:\ drive inadvertently deleted by using MS Picture Manager. Is that possible? When I run System Restore I keep getting the "Incomplete Restoration" message prompting me to select another date.  My laptop is a T60 ThinkPad.

Thanks.

Re: System Restore

Try a shareware like undelete instead and see whether any files are recoverable.

[ Edited ]

Thanks very much for your help. Unfortunately, UNDELETE was never an option in the MS Picture Manager application, nor was there any sort of warning about deleting my files at their source, which is what happened.

 

My IBM-Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is Type 2007 Model CTO Serial # . Product ID: 2007WAU

 

Thanks again to you and anyone else who would like to weigh in on this problem. Also need to know why the System Restore application won't work for me. If it would take me back to Jan. 2, 2011, theoretically my files should come back.

 

Moderator edit: Removed serial to prevent misuse.

Re: System Restore

undelete is a program you can download off the web.

Re: System Restore

Thanks very much! I downloaded the program and it worked! Got all my pictures back. The trick is to be very selective--otherwise you might get back more than you bargained for. :-)

The program is well worth the investment of $40 to get back my stuff.

This is my maiden voyage on the Lenovo community forum.  Consider me a satisfied customer!

Someone please advise how to move to the "solved" category.
