    Hi Todd, after doing something, but I don't know what specifically, I wanted to boot to a different snapshot and saw the message in bright red. I thought that I remembered that another boot would fix this, but it persists.
    I uninstalled the program only and then re-installed, and still it persists.
    My next guess is to uninstall program and snapshots and re-install but I want to ask first.
    I did search this forum using "$ISR not found" and found a post that said a reboot would suffice so I wasn't dreaming.
    Thanks in advance,
    Jim
    version is 3.31.233
    everything works OK, it's just the message

    Does C:\$ISR folder show in Windows Explorer?
    Did you try running chkdsk c: /p from Recovery Console or by reboot from drive properties Tools/CheckNow with "automatically fix..." checked on?

    It shows in Explorer OK, no, I haven't run chkdsk. I thought Todd might have an answer before I do that. It had crossed my mind,
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Thanks, but I have all my archives stashed safely on another drive. I had even restored one hoping that might trigger some kind of 'self-healing'.
    Everything works perfectly, I can boot to any snapshot, all apps run. It's just the bright red message that caught my eye and I'd like to find out how to make it go away.

    But if I don't hear from Todd I'll run chkdsk and see if that sorts it out. Worst case is the usual reformat, install XP followed by FD and then import an archive.

    I ran this and the results showed a clean system, i.e. no errors at all.

    Still waiting for Todd, probably next week....

    Re: $ISR not found - Resolved

    I discovered the cause. On Aug. 26th I deleted a snapshot, there were two errors in the log, and the icon remained. However, when I clicked on that snapshots icon, the icon disappeared making it seem to be completely deleted. But it was still 'remembered' and when using the FD boot manager, the "$ISR not found" message was related to the deleted snapshot (#2).
    I restored an archive so that there were again 3 snapshots and the message did not appear.
    Problem solved.

    Thanks for reporting back, JWC! It's good to close the loop for someone else's future reference.:thumb:

    Thanks Croft, I just went through the deletion process again and it worked without any errors. I vaguely recall that the messages in August said that I didn't have authority (logs are long gone) on a couple of files.
    Hopefully no one else has the problem, but if they do, this will likely solve their problem.
