    Vista system restore attempt throwing "not enough space" status
    Hi!

    I'm unable to boot into the Windows GUI. When I power up the computer, the "Startup Repair" window stating "Your computer was unable to start" appears and attempts to correct the problem. After a few minutes, it reports that it cannot repair the computer automatically and presents me with a "System Recovery Options" window. Since the initial Startup Repair was unsuccessful, I'm choosing not to select that option again...so I thought the "System Restore" option would be the next best approach. When I try to perform the System Restore, I run into the following scenario . . . after I select my restore point and the restoring files activity is complete I recieve and error 0x80070070 and a message citing not enough space. My C: drive has 19Gb free so is the lack of space in a partition and if so how can I change it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I'm more than happy to post additional information as required.

    Thanks!
