The following are some of the things that you need to keep in mind while restoring Windows XP on your HP Pavilion p6380t Desktop PC:
- Ensure personal data backup
- Scan for viruses
- Ensure adequate hard disk space
Ensure personal data backup
While restoring Windows XP on your HP Pavilion p6380t Desktop PC, you might lose important files and documents stored on it. Therefore, it is always advisable to maintain a backup of all the data that is important. Windows XP provides a backup utility for the regular backing up of data. Copy the contents to a blank CD or DVD before using System Restore. Such a backup will help you to get back the data.
Scan for viruses
Before restoring Windows XP, remove all the virus programs and infected files from your system. This will help you to restore the operating system by removing all the unwanted files that tend to change or corrupt the system files. It will also help in freeing up the memory by deleting the virus-infected files.
It is necessary to check whether you have enough hard disk space to store the data gathered for creating restore points. A minimum of 200MB free space must be available on the hard disk for creating system restore points. If you allocate more than 200MB, then it might result in better performance of the system. So, use the Disk Cleanup tool if you don’t have enough space.
