    Re: Drive letter was missing from system restore setting page

    when you open system restore settings, one or more drive letters may be missing in the list of available drives.As a result monitoring may not enabled for the missing drives.
    To fix this problem.
    METHOD 1-renaming the drivetable.txt file
    Drivetable.txt is the file which holds the system restore drive letters list, and stores other configuration information such as system restore space allocation information for each drive.This file is present in one of the sub-folders of the system volume information folder,present in the %systemdrive%
    *click start,run and type %systemdrive%
    *select the system volume information folder.
    Note that system volume information folder is super hidden by default and you need to configure the folder options dialog to show all hidden and protected files.
    *then look in for a file named drivetable.txt in one of the sub folder.
    * rename the file drivetable.txt to old_drivetable.txt.
    *undo the above permission and restart windows.
    A new drivetable.txt file will be generated and all the drivers will now be monitored by system restore.
