As usual you are "attacking" a feature because it doesn't do what it WAS NOT
designed to do.
There is NO reason to EVER go to that backup for that reason. Do you know
what shadow copy is? It's what Apple ripped from Windows 2003 Server and
called it Time Machine. Well, it's in the same versions of Vista that comes
with Complete PC Backup.
All you have to do is right-click the file or folder, go to properties and
revert back to whatever version of the file you want.
If you deleted a file then perform this action on the folder and you'll see
your deleted file.
Once again, you failed to prove your point of there being no reason for
Vista. The only thing you have, once again, proven is your complete
ignorance of Vista. Go read a book on Vista before you make any more
Actually come up with something viable and REAL. Like how Windows Mail is
buggy when it comes to IMAP connections.
