issue on Virtual PC under XP Mode

Hello,

I have Win 7 pro and am working with XP Mode,

This morning Windows has setup the update, but the computer turned off during this step.When i turn on, the computer XP mode (Windows XP Mode.vhd) has a date on January 2012.

I tried to restore the computer but without success,I would like, restore the computer with yesterday date or to have access in the local where my job has been saved.

I will be happy if one person can help me with this topic.

Best Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for your reply,

I restore only WIn7 because i manually deleted the updated.So nothing was possible to restore XP mode 

If I remember well, it was this message : System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computers system files and setting were not change.

Your app is only for Microsoft office, the file I lost, is not Microsoft.

I used different User for differents version of mz software but the other are not impacted.

If any suggestion, let me know

Thanks n advance
