Hi Nikisha,

It's Stuart here from the BackupAssist team, thanks for posting on our forum.

Are you just restoring data files, or are you performing a bare metal restore of the system?
This will depend on what types of backups you've been running and how you're restoring your data.

Which operating system are you running on your computer at the moment?
Do you remember which type of backup you were running within BackupAssist (e.g. imaging, file replication, zip)?

If you were performing a bare metal restore of your system, then the system will appear as it did when the backup was performed.
However if you're just restoring the data files and not the entire system, then things such as your desktop background will not be restored.

If you have any questions or concerns about anything I've said, please don't hesitate to reply to me; I'm more than happy to consider any feedback you have, or answer any questions.
