    I'm running Windows7 Ultimate 64-bit. I went in to the control panel/System Protection to turn on Protection on the drive that contain my documents so I could use the "Restore Previous versions". When I attempted to do so I got an error stating "Could not apply settings for the following reason: THe Filename, directory name, or valume label syntax is incorrect"

    How do I find the syntax problem?

    Are you using the "&" character in the filename, directory name, or volume label?

    the filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect
    This may also be relevant.
    Error - The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect. (0x8007007B), when exiting system restore

    Is it the 0x8007007B error code you are receiving?
