    I had a hard drive failure and replaced the disk. I was able to clone the disk prior to complete failure and was able to restore the clone to the new disk. All seemed to work great.

    I went to system restore and now there is a "(C) (Missing)" entry in the available disks. If i uncheck it, I can't create a restore point for the new disk. For the sake of keeping things clean, I'd like to get rid of this entry but can't find a suitable registry entry to delete.

    Any ideas?

    Just click that you want to create a new restore point. It will disappear by itself.

    LOL. That is a strange side-effect of SR that I guess we have in common.
