Restoration of a computer is a process with which a system is restored back to fully working condition after some issues have come up. Restoration help the users fix their computers themselves without having to take it to an authorized service centre. Almost all Windows based Operating Systems come with this option and Windows 7 OS comes preloaded with the System Restore feature for users to restore the system. The System Restore feature on Windows 7 has a very simple user interface. System Restore creates restore points which would have backup copies of all essential system files on the system and as majority of all computer software related issues come up as a result of problems with system files, restoring the system files to their original, trouble free condition would help to get rid of the problem. Restore points can be either created automatically or manually.

The System Restore feature on Windows 7 helps to recover data on the system at the time when the problems come up. If the users had removed or modified a key system file that is preventing the system from starting up, all of the data on the system would become inaccessible. However, as System Restore replaces all of the system files the problem would get solved and users would be able to access data or information on the system.
Eliminates the need of OS reinstall
The removal of an essential system file can cause all kinds of problems with the working of the OS. In such cases, normally the Windows 7 OS would have to be reinstalled to get the system back to proper working condition. System Restore helps to get the system back to working condition without the need for a complete Windows 7 OS reinstall and if the users do not have a genuine installation disk of the OS, additional purchase of the OS can be also averted.

In case some issues do come up with some of the drivers installed on your system running on Windows 7, System Restore would help to get the drivers back to their original state. This is also applicable in case you had installed an updated version of some driver, and problems are coming up with the use of the newly installed driver. System Restore undoes all harmful changes and gets the system back to ideal working condition.
