Windows 7: Where is the System Restore log?

Where is the System Restore log?

Hello,

I'm trying to use System Restore to undo something on my PC and I keep getting a message on next restart that it has failed with error code 0x80070005. I would like to check the SR log to see exactly where it went wrong. How can I do that? Where is the log?

Thank you.

SFC comes up clean. Also event viewer has only ONE event in system noting the SR failure and code and nothing else.
