Windows 7: Restore Previous Versions From Recovery Point or Recent Backup

Restore Previous Versions From Recovery Point or Recent Backup

Hi folks,

I have a question about restoring files, and admittedly it's a Microsoft test that I'm about to take (TOMORROW!! WISH ME LUCK!) that has me desperate to know the (Microsoft) answer to this.

How does one know when to restore a Previous Version from backup or from a recovery point?

EX: If I have a backup running every single night, and then one day I install an application and one of the log files I need ends up being overwritten by a blank log file, would I restore from last night's backup or from the restore point that was created when I just installed that application?

Anyone who has taken Microsoft tests will understand why I'm asking this, and probably recognize the hypothetical scenario I've laid out for you.

How does one know which previous version to restore from?

Thank you for any help!
James T.
