    Is it safe to restore to previous restore point or it will create some problem in future in the OS?

    I recently did a restore to a previous restore point but I am quite not sure whether this is healthy to do. Can you confirm if this is safe to do ? Will it create any problem in future or so? What are the problems will be?

    Hi there,
    Restoring the PC to previous Restore Point is not a problem/will create a problem in future while using your PC.
    The System Restore will just restore the PC to the earlier stage where only certain programs were installed or un-insatlled. But it will not change any files in your PC.
    Problem may occur in future depending on the use of the PC by you or others.

    Regards.

    Yes it is totally safe to restore your window to the previous restore point.
    This feature is added by microsoft to solve various kind of problems like windows file corruption and other windows files related problems.
    It will restore all your windows files and directory to the previous point where all files are working properly.
    This will not cause any type of problem so dont worry about it.
    This is properly safe and healthy.

    Hiiiiiiiii,
    It doesn't create any problems whether you install in previous restore point,Restore points are stored in a hidden folder called System Volume Information on the root of the C drive.
    ,and you should not always do the system restore because Windows System Restore is not a perfect way to backup your system but is handy when you just want to roll back a software or Windows Update installation, and does have problems when the restore file becomes corrupted due to many restore points and other problems.
    Thank you

    there is no problem with the restore point in future also because

    It restores the the settings and files of pc to the earlier state only

    and Because there are no installed softwares to affect.... when the restore is done

    so those are completely removed from the PC so there is no problem at all ............

    Hi,
    restore to previous restore point is absolutely harmless and let me tell you why,
    The previous restore point is a point when system was running fine, all drivers loaded, all libraries loaded and the OS was ready to do anything asked for.
    It is harmless as the mode "last known good" as described by the exparts is a perfect point to start windows operation.
    Think about those progmmars and exparts of Microsoft who had created this option for our good, while earlier if and when crashed Windows used to create havoc as lots of data and files used to get lost and corrupted. So it is a blessings in real.
    Get along.
