How do I find a missing system restore?

So I recently ran combofix(I had someone helping me), it clears out the recycle bin and I had some files that had been placed in my recycle bin I need. I know it creates a system restore, I used it today but I can't find anything under today's date. Is this normal? What do I need to do to find the one for today's date?

I'm going to try some undelete software as a second option.

I didn't turn off the computer yet, so perhaps I need to reboot? Does a system restore even restore things in the recycle bin? I recall that it did.

System restore points are not deleted via the recycle bin. They are either turned on or off in the control panel, system, system restore tab. If its turned off, well sorry. There are no restore points then. The only place to clean up restore points is under the disk clean up options in the properties of the hard drive, (under the more options tab). There you can clean off all but the last restore point. Check to see that your system restore is actually enabled.

Hope this helps...
