Good Evening,

I'm running Windows ME, with 640mb ram and 40gb hard drive.
I have over a 1000 files named, A******.Cpy, where the * are digits.
Please, can anyone tell me what they are, whether they are needed, if not, can I delete them.

TIA.

Wishing all a Happy Christmas and Prosperous 2005.

They are your System Restore files.

Thanks for the quick response, I'd guessed they were some thing like that. I have not been able to use System Restore for ages, either to go back or to create new restore points. I've followed the threads and tried the fixes suggested when others have asked questions regarding System Restore problems, all without success. I've given up on ever using System Restore again, so any thoughts on just deleting them?

I've got XP home and would have had to reformat a number of times if it wasn't for system restore. I'd post your specific problems with it on here and try and get it back up and running. HTH TR

Tried your suggestion, no joy, as I said earlier, I have tried the various fixes that have been suggested on this and various other forums over the years with no success. Still the same state, either "No Restore points exist" and "Unable to create Restore point, switch off and try again" messages. Thanks anyway.

I appreciate what you are saying, but I've spent so much time trying to get System Restore working I've given up. I do back up my system frequently and all my data daily so I'm reasonably well covered. Touch wood, I've only had to resort to reformatting a disc once in eight years, admitted that's only three computers but I guess doing the housework and being careful and a bit of luck pays.
