System Restore Problem

  swanson2 21:59 02 Apr 05


I am running Windows XP(SP2).

I have just changed my Hard Drive boot up disk as the old one was beginning to fail.

I used Seagate Disk Wizard software to duplicate my old hard drive contents onto the new disk (Seagate 160Gb)via an external USB2 caddy.

I then replaced my old disk with the new one.

All seemed to go OK, the new disk boots up alright and all my data seems to be intact.

However when I try and activate System restore I get the error message "System Restore has encounterd a problem etc. - please send a report to Microsoft".

The new disk has formatted in NTFS whilst the old one was FAT 32 - could this be causing my problem and has anyone any suggestions about how I might recover my "missing" system Restore facility?
