"Every once in a while set a new restore point and you will only lose very recent stuff. Which was probably the problem time frame anyway."
That was one of the options was to undo the changes back to a restore point. Which I tried. The restore date was the 8th of this month. That, for some reason, did not work. I had backed up everything on a external hard drive but it wouldn't even recognize that there was anything pertinent on it.
So I worked my way up the chain of options until I got to the most aggressive before something happened.
Who knows? She seems to be holding together.
