View or Delete Windows 7 System Restore Points

by Rohit Khurana on January 9, 2012


Today I have got a tool for you named System Restore Explorer which will help you to view, browse and delete the restore points that have been made in your system. This process of deleting the unwanted restore point can help you to clear the hard disk for some space. As you know that system restore is the way to rollback your system, registry and the application to a particular state which can be set by you or the system. The system restore point can be created and restore very easily in a very simple manner using the system restore feature available in windows. The system restore is a very good feature but it will not allow you to modify the restore point, it will restore your system to the exact same state in which it was stored. This means that even the things that you don’t want will be restored.

This application will allow you to browse all the  restore points that you have created on your system. The application will allow you to mount every restore point to a folder. This feature of mounting the restore point to the folder will give you the access to all the files so that you can alter as per your needs. You can modify the restore in your way so that only the things you want will be stored and the ones that you don’t want to be restored will be left as it is. The application is tested to work correctly on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
