Thanks for the response Paul,
I ran defrag from within Vista this has me puzzled. I have googled and for
the most part this happens with duel boot or as you say through boot defrag
neither of which applies :-(

Do you have it set to use "VSS defragmentation method"? It should be
set to do that.

defragmenting
the drive removes all restore points anyone know how to fix this. I also
tried Diskeeper same result.

Don't perform the boot defrag (the one that runs before Windows
loads). I ran that either with Diskeeper or another program once and
lost all my restore points.
