System Restore Unexpected Error 8007007B
Is the one I get trying to run System Restore in Vista Home Premium.
It says
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
(0x8007007B)

System Restore will now close.


Any ideas. Tried to run as administrator and that did not help.

Do you have Norton Antivirus (NAV) installed. If so disable it, then run
system restore , then reenable NAV.

Hi Gilbert,

Press the WinKey on the keyboard and type or paste
SystemPropertiesProtection then press enter.

Deselect the "C: Missing" checkbox and select "Local Disk C:" to enable
System Restore.

Hi Gilbert,

I found the answer on these MS newsgroups.

This error was created do to an issue with the way Gateway imaged some of
there drives with Vista. As far as I know it has not made it's way to the MS
knowledge base. You could check the Gateway KB if they have one.

Could you send me a screen shot of the System Properties dialog box with the
"C: Missing on it? Send to bertNS@mvps.org (Remove the NS to reply).

I tried to get the shot but the error C: Missing is no longer there.
It seems to remove it when you deselect it and or after a reboot.


Vista has lot lot problems. I am about to post about sound handling.
Every part of a sound controller gets a different device id. That is
that the input and output devices each have a different ID. That did
not happen in XP and MANY program are written with that assumption so
when you have more than one card it gets it wrong unless you are using
the default card.

I wish there were a registry key to change to fix this but apparently
there is not. I think that was an really bad decision not to make at
least a backward compatible option for this as it will break a LOT of
code.

Hi.

I was installing a fresh copy of kaspersky downloaded from
kaspersky.com and it was for some reason corrupted. I am using Vista.
During install proces, I got a blue screen and my PC rebooted. Upon
reboot, check disk started and tons and tons of errors were detected,
line after line non-stop, with words like "orphaned", "deleted",
"corrupt" etc. Screen was moving too fast to read anything.

Anyway. I couldn't get back into vista. I got the the blue screen and a
crash every time I tried. I even tried "last good config" but it didn't
let me in.

Finally, I managed to get into safe mode and tried to do a system
restore. It didn't let me. I got the error message:

-System Restore Unexpected Error
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
(0x8007007B)
System Restore will now close.-

That's when I began searching for more info on this error message until
I came across this thread.

I am just about to follow the steps that Bert Kinney has given since
they worked for someone above.

But before I do that, I noticed that he had requested for a screenshot
of the window with "missing" on it.

I've just taken the screenshot and I'm mailing it to you Bert. Hope
it's not too late for whatever use you will make out of it. :)

Thanks.
