Well, I messed up and lost hours of work. I accidentally deleted a layer I thought I didn't need, saved and closed, and when I came back to open up again, I realized what I'd done. I'm super annoyed.
I tried a restore point. Now I'm even more annoyed. The last one was May 27th even though I've worked on the file 3 or 4 times in the last week. So that is useless.
So my question is, how do I get the computer to create more restore points for my psd files. Is it a setting in the program? Is it an actual windows setting? This dummy doesn't know. If you know, I would appreciate a little help, even it is the latter and nothing to do with Elements.
This isn't something I use myself, but I think you need to look at the File History feature in Windows, not the Restore Points which are part of the System Restore feature. Like @hatstead has already pointed out, System Restore is intended for restoring system files, not personal documents.
