I saw the other post like this and that, but i can't solve my problem, I opened regedit and find the previous version of folder USER <-screen, when i select/open it I can see the folder in the version from 2013-08-14 16:53 because this folder I targeting, how I can find the path with this time. When I make select and then I closing the window, In HKEY_local_machine/system/ControlSet001 or 002 I can find last two paths which are these same.

My question is How I can find the enviroment path value from 2013-08-14? Any links will be priceless ?

When I red steps from other answers, I can't find NTUSER.DAT and select it, also I have problem with select the folder User I can only open it, for me select =/= open.

The answer in the second link should work . . . To find your ntuser.dat, open the Users directory, then the folder for the user name, e.g. \\localhost\C$\Users\UserName (‎Monday, ‎August ‎12, ‎2013, ‏‎10:50 AM) – ernie Aug 22 '13 at 15:59
I started regedit like a admin, but I cant make this files unhidden, because "the media is write protected" – MyWay Aug 23 '13 at 7:19
