Restore makes the dates but when I try and use one, it acts like it's working but when it's done, it says nothing downloaded and to try another date. I try several but they all have the same result, failure.
After searching this prob. out on the net, someone suggested that I set it up to work on both drives. I would prefer it work only on C which is my main drive. The other is a USB one and I use it w/ Norton Ghost to save an image for future posssible probs.. Must I set it up on both or can I just use C?

Don't know the answer, but I only have System Restore active on my C: drive (turned off for D). It works correctly.

Have you tried unplugging the USB drive to see if it works then? Try turning off SR (with the USB drive unplugged). Reboot then re-activate SR and give it a shot.

Turning off system restore automatically deletes all restore points. If you turn it off, you will *not* have any restore points to work with at all.

Restore points that don't work are of no use. He also said he has Ghost back-ups of his system in the event he needs them.
