    In the System Restore window, it says:

    "System Restore does not affect any of your documents, pictures, or
    other personal data. Recently installed programs and drivers might be
    uninstalled. Is this process reversible?"

    I have had a problem since Vista of System Restore deleting some personal files from personal folders. It says above that it will not affect your "personal data" but it does. I had to do a System Restore yesterday (used the restore file before the most current) and when I tried to compile a program this morning, several files were missing. The folder/files were as follows:

    C:\CodeTyphon\Lazarus\ALazarusProjects\MyProjectTest\GnuPG
    empty keys
    fingerprint.txt
    gpg.conf
    gpg.exe - missing after doing a System Restore
    iconv.dll - missing after doing a System Restore
    pubkey.asc
    pubring.bak
    pubring.gpg
    random_seed
    secring.gpg
    trustdb.gpg

    C:\CodeTyphon\Lazarus\ALazarusProjects\MyProjectTest\Stunnel\
    stunnel.exe - missing after doing a System Restore
    - others also missing after doing a System Restore (can't remember)

    C:\CodeTyphon\Lazarus\ALazarusProjects\MyProjectTest\Mixmaster\
    mix.cfg - missing after doing a System Restore

    Wonder if this is a system bug? None of these files are pointed to in the registry.

    Thanks.
