restore error 0x80070001 incorrect function

I've checked the MS knowledge base but didn't really find a resolution to this error message.

When I try to use any of my restore points I get the error 0x80070001 incorrect function.

Any help with this?

Yes I did. My problem is only with restore, not backup.
