[Q] Windows restore point

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey overclockers!

I just had a quick question: If I make a windows system restore point, then reformat windows 7 completely, will returning the restore point bring me back windows as it was?

Just asking because I have a second hand PC and its getting a bit slow so reinstalling windows would help...

Thanks a bunch!

No. System Restore only works for current installed Windows. Once you format the drive, all system info, reg changes and system backup files (catalog) etc. that System Restore needs to recover from is deleted as well.
