    Can I system restore beyond the given restore points?

    I have not been able to resolve my sound and messenger problems that occured
    after an update. However, when I go to system restore, it only goes back 5
    days and I need it to go back 6. Is there any way to restore to a point
    previous to the points they offer? Thanks.

    No. The data to do the system restore further back no longer exists..

    Hi Let-La,

    Be sure to check the box in step 3B shown in this tutorial for how to see the ones older than 5 days.

    If you would like to increase the amount of storage space used for System Restore for restore points so you can have more to select from later, then this tutorial will show you how to.

    Hope this helps,
