I previously posted a thread about my picture files missing from a slave hard drive. Some of the picture folders returned (how?) a few days later, but with only a few pics in each one, hundreds of pictures missing. I tried the various free software to recover the missing data. It succeeded in bringing only a few more back, most files were corrupted so bad they couldn't be read anymore. On my motorcycle forum someone suggested that I do a system restore to a previous date, AND IT WORKED! All my pictures are back, and I'm making copies of those to CD as I type. My question is this: How can the system restore affect the slave drive, where the pictures were, if the OS wasn't on there?
