Deleted Storage Volume Shadow Copy

    While cleaning up phantom entries in Device Manager (With Show hidden and
    environment variable
    set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1) I accidently deleted "Storage Volume
    Shadow Copies".

    How do I get the system to recreate this entry?

    I have tried stopping/starting the VSS service. Turning off/on system
    restore.

    If you not rebooted since deleting, do this:
    reboot, at the bios screen repeatedly tap, tap, tap, tap F8 to bring up
    Windows prompt screen, select 'Last Know Good Configuration'. That should
    fix it.

    If you've rebooted since then, I'd google for an answer!

    once you log into xp last know good becomes your current log in.
