It's win7/vista feature
System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage
System Restore Configuration - Enable or Disable

If you access the disk form winxp/linux etc... files are updated without updating the old block-contents. This will make the restore points invalid.

After making a "restore point" in win7
  • all blocks on disk that are modified afterwards... the old contents will be saved as well in restore point.
See it as a snaphot on that moment. They are also used for "system restore" after a bad windows update or program install. Or backup a live system

In winxp you have to be fast, so the blocks aren't overwritten. If so, use 3rd party software to recover it

Data can be recovered until it is overwritten by some other data, Actually when we delete a file only the index entry which stores the location is deleted and that location is now marked as free space and ready to store other data. So if that space is not allocated to new data the previous data is still recoverable. Thats what recovery software is intended to do. Without spending any further time use some data recovery application like Kernel for Windows Data Recovery to recover your data. The best way to recover data is to uninstall the hard disk from which you want to recover data and connect it to some other system as an external drive and then recover the data from it.

If you do not have any type of recent backup of that file, you will need to search for, purchase, dowload and install a data recovery software to recover the deleted file.

You need to use this ASAP or you need to stop using your Mac, so as not to risk writing over the area where the file resided before you deleted it.
This is the last way and resort to retrieve a deleted file.
