  • windows 7 Home Premium.  I had to restore my computer to a previous back up and in the process lost several picture files I would dearly love to get back. How can I do this?  System Restore doesn't do the job.

  • Hi,

    Where are those files stored in before you restored this PC?

    How did you restore the PC? System Restore?

    As I know, Personal files, such as documents, e‑mail, photos, and music files, are not changed by system restore, but, if this issue is caused by a system restore, then there's an undo option, you can undo the changes, backup the files, then, restore again.
