When I try to create a system restore point, the computer says that it cannot create the restore point and suggests restarting my computer and trying again. This does not work. I suspect that the problem started after I added an additional (larger) hard drive to my PC and made it the system disk. The new disk is drive letter C: and the older, smaller disk is drive F: When I check the system restore settings, it thinks that the old drive F: is the system disk. Is there a way to fix my system restore?
