System restore after the shaping of internal drive and re - install XP from CD

Recently, when we did a re-start, there was a disk read error, and we could not re - open our system.

After several attempts and try many different things, we have formatted the internal drive and reinstalled XP from our CD.

Now, we want to restore our system to the way it was before the accident.

We have the external hard drive I think the system restore on it.

Can we some how use it to restore our system so that it works in the same way as it did before the crash?

We also have Carbonite for our records, but I don't think they can help us with the system.

Thanks for any advice you can offer on this.

    Best regards

    Hello Jazz

    Please slow down. Your ad is quite confusing. You can the prior words includes on two completely different ways.

    (1) previous state as factory settings. If you use recovery media is removed from the entire HARD disk and all data will be lost. There is no way to recover them. To the review no data more.
    (2) previous state by using System Restore tool. It will roll back OS time earlier, but all data will be there. Sorry, but if you have ever used recovery media, it's too late for this option.

  • backup and system restore after upgrade to 8.1

    I have an Acer Aspire Swich 10 E computer that came with Windows 8.1. After many hours of downloading, I upgraded to 10 Windows for free. Now, I want to make a backup of the system so that I can restore Windows to its present first State that is necessary or desirable.

    When I launch Acer Recovery Management to create a backup, the only options are "Factory Default," which is no doubt 8.1 Windows 'drivers and Applications.

    I tried to use Acronis True Image, but he does not see my C: drive, which is probably for the 64 GB SSD. He sees the 500 GB HDD, the Acronis USB key and the reader, that I intend to use for the backup. I understand that the default value of the plant is stored on a hidden partition, likely on the SSD, so I wasn't expecting to see that.

    How to restore Windows 10 without first reinstalling 8.1, and then reupgrading?

    I also want my backup on my media, not on some clouds or pie in the sky!

    Oh, and of course, at a later date, I want to make a backup with my software installed and all the removed bloatware.

  • will be all my files get saved or new that were created after the death of this drive?

    I'm in Windows 8.  I had an external drive that I had put in place to save on file history.   This drive is dead.  I have since bought a new and I'm setting up historical files to copy to the disc.  He asked me if I would like to move files to this player of the former.  Of course, I can't.  He's dead.  I said no and it seemed to go.

    My question is: are all my files get saved or new that were created after the death of this drive?

    If she's not aging files saved on it, how can I get all my files copied?

    Hi Becky,

    Please contact Microsoft Community,

    As you have said that your return to the history of files on external Drive that got crashed, and then you bought a new external drive and set up again for the backup.

    I want to tell you that unfortunately, it will only back up recent files that you created on the new drive. Steps to recover old files is not possible that the backup was created on the external pilot who already got crashed.

    Hi dynamitenews

     

    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?

     

    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/BIOS-frequently-asked-questions

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    BIOS WARNING-
    Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
