Restore system to previous time

Is there a way to restore the system to a previous point in time, like a few hours ago, or just a day?
# 2  
IF you have backups (and I understand what you mean). Are you thinking like 'windows restore point'?
In order to help please help us with:
What unix version do you have? - post output of
uname -a

What are you trying to fix? data or software?
