Things a little starnge at moment, cant install flash, 3rd party software not installing, and Mavericks failing on download.

If say I restore from Time machine rom when things were OK (Jan 1) are the files worked on since Jan 1 lost or retained?

Secondly I have a bootcamp windows partition not backed up in Time machine. Will I lose that?

If you do a full restore of all the files then yes those files would be replaced with files from January 1. Unless you delete the BootCamp partition or erase the entire drive it won't be touched by the installation.

Can you tell us a bit more about this situation?
1. What Mac are we dealing with here?
2. What OS do you currently have on this Mac? Are you already running Mavericks and trying to repair it or are you running an Older OS?
3. What exactly happens when the Mavericks download fails?

Mac late 2009 16GB RAM Running Lion. Trying a second (14 hour) download now. Too many problems with programs just now.

Flashplayer 12 wont install

A third party photo program wont install

The download from Apple said Mavericks incomplete and to delete and download again.

Question really is if I reistall (lion) from a time machin backup, are files created from then to now lost along with the Bootcamp partition?

from the app store. Cleaned permissions and repaired disc from the HD restore option. Now considering a reinstall of Lion prior to the mavericks but am assuming all documents/files/etc remain undisturbed and it's just an OS reistall, leaving my Bootcamp partition alone?

The Boot Camp partition will be left alone as long as you don't accidentally tell the installer to install Mavericks on that partition.
