  1. I want to restore my system to remove some problem of my computer, however, I can not find my backup files. I didn't remeber when I deleted it, how can I restore my computer without this backup files.

    Because my camera can not show on my computer, showing some program conflicts with it. I didn't find the conflicted program, in order to let the camera work well I want to restore my computer, then I found the backup file is missing. I used the GGhost backup that files, what can I do now?

    What operating system are you using?

    Windows XP, what is the matter with the operation system?

    It matters because different operating systems have slightly different ways of getting things done. For XP go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. With System Restore you can restore the system to an earlier time, hopefully before your current problem occurred. If you don't like it you can undo the restore or restore to an even earlier time. This all depends on whether or not you have sufficient restore points saved.

    Good luck.
