Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings maximized. Use Snipping Tool in Start Menu. Tell us what is on each partition.

Chances are the Recov partition had its Active flag stolen by Ubuntu. Are you trying to run Factory Recovery from Win7 or boot?

Please Help

Thank you for your reply. I am trying to do a simple restore to an earlier time but each time I do it I get the error message 0x80070570.
I downloaded Ubunto from a cd from boot up, I choose the trial option not the install. Please find attached a picture of the error message and the disk management screen.
Thank for you help.

You could try a "repair install" from your installation DVD which will preserve your files and user data?

You have a working windows 7, and you tried out a live Ubuntu without installing it. You show us the disk management partition map which shows no linux-type filesystems. Ubuntu is a red herring here - no relevance.

You now want to do a windows restore for no apparent reason and it fails more than once with an error 0x80070570. This is a file copy error, indicating that the restore point may be corrupt.

Can you make a new restore point, and attempt to restore from that? If so there is nothing wrong but a corrupt old restore point which should be removed.

Your Win7 looks correct in screenshot. I would make my HP Recovery Disks from the Recovery partition if you haven't already which will be a clue as to whether it works any longer. You can also try to run Factory Recovery to see if it will cue up, then abort it. The reason to do these tests is to see if it has been corrupted and is only wasting space now.

As to System Restore failing, as suggested try another Restore Point from Windows, then try again from System Recovery Options on Win7 DVD or Repair CD which doesn't rely on OS files to run it.

If it continues to fail, turn it off and then on again in Control Panel>System Protection. Apportion more space so more points will hang around longer: System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

If this fails, run SFC -SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check integrity of System Files.

As a last resort before Reinstalling Windows 7 try a Repair Install
