    System restore point not working

    I am facing the problem in system restore. While installing updates , I lost some of my files and setting in my laptop. So, I want to restore it back to an earlier Restore point.
    But when I tried to do , i got an error "Error 0x80070002" . What is that error ?

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]you may need to switch System Restore off (this will delete all your existing restore points), restart your computer and turn it on again.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]u should mainly configure disk space usage.try system image back up programs.[/FONT]

    in windows the error can be solve by fixit
    or by microsoft support
    Note This Fix it Solution has two modes Default and Aggressive. You should run the Fix it solution in Default mode and determine if it resolves your problem with Windows Update before running it in Aggressive mode.

    Note If you would rather fix this problem yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.

    Note This wizard may be in English only; however, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows.

    Note If you are not on the computer that has the problem, save the Fix it solution to a flash drive or a CD and then run it on the computer that has the problem.

    part 2:-To fix this problem yourself, remove the download directory, and then visit the update locations again.
    1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
      2. Right-click the Automatic Updates service, and then click Stop.
      3. Minimize the Services snap-in.
    2. Rename the SoftwareDistribution directory. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
      2. Type cd %windir%, and then press ENTER.
      3. Type ren SoftwareDistribution SDTemp, and then press ENTER
      4. Type exit, and then press ENTER .

      Note When you remove the %windir%\softwaredistribution folder, the history list is erased from the "Review your Updates" section of the Windows Update Web site. This action will not affect the currently installed updates on your computer. Subsequent updates will appear in the history list.
    3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Maximize the Services snap-in.
      2. Right-click the Automatic Updates service, and then click Start.
      3. Close the Services snap-in window.
    4. Visit the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or the WSUS server again, and then download an update.
    5. If you still receive the same errors, verify that you have correctly performed steps 1 through 3.
    6. If you still cannot install the update, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:906602 How to troubleshoot Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server Update Services installation issues
