Anybody with experience using backup to recover deleted files, not whole system?

Is backup any good for that, for going back to a previous state of one's operating system to recover a limited number of files that are missing? If so, how do you do that?

My only backup right now is My Documents on Google Drive. More on the mess I find myself in at http://www.geekstogo...s-what-do-i-do/

Depends on the backup type... For Google Drive you can re-download specific ones and based on your prior post, you should be able ot go online to your Google Drive account and go into your TRASH folder/bin and see the multiple GB's of deleted files there, then restore them or drag them into a new folder you could call RECOVERED. Then it will sync that folder/restored files to your desktop.

Is is for a computer or smartphone? If you are using iPhone, then you can easily restore deleted files from iTunes or iCloud. If the files not being deleted in a long time, then you can even recover deleted files from iPhone directly. This tutorial (recover iphone deleted files) provides 3 different way to help you retrieve deleted data from different media storages. You should have a look at that.
