It depends on what the settings are. For example I have my system restore to use the max amt of space, and as of today I can restore back to May 1st of this year. You should be ok.

That depends on how much storage you allotted to it and how often it has created restore points since then. When it runs out of storage, it deletes the older restore points to free storage.

To change it (can use up to 12%), go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | System Restore (or right-click My Computer | Properties | System Restore tab) and click the "System Restore Settings". Choose the drive/partition, click Settings, and choose what percent of that hard drive/partition you would like to use (maximum).

To see if you can go back that far, just open System Restore, make sure the "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is selected and click Next.

Edit: Sorry about that, I didn't see the above post. I didn't type quickly enough. :whistling:
