CBlockFile: Restore err=2, album_index.db

by have?? / October 8, 2009 2:51 PM PDT

I use windows Vista
Can not open Google Piscasa without this error message: CBlockFile: Restore err=2, album_index.db
All other programs seems to be working fine. I tried searching the net only found one no
answer for it.

I tried System Restore - Got this message -There was an unexpected error: The Volume Shadow Copy service used by System Restore is not working. For more information view the event Log. (0x81000202)

? do I have 2 problems now? Google Piscasa is my favorite Photo program would it work it I uninstall and reinstall the program if I can
not restore the computer to a later date? What's up with my System Restore? I ran a check for error's + ran a malware program everything is
fine.

Appreciate any help

Window's Visa,

Just wanted to write I worked the problem out. I started with the
System Restore problem.
-------------------------------------------
Start->Run
Type "services.msc". Enter.
In the Services Window, in the right pane; Please check that the following services are enabled and also note the Startup Type:
- "Remote Procedure Call" (RPCSS), Automatic
mine (Automatic)
- "COM+ Event System" (EventSystem), Manual
mine (Automatic)
- "System Event Notification Service" (SENS) , Automatic - mine (Automatic)
- "Volume Shadow Copy" (VSS), Manual - Mine (Manual)
- "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" (SWPRV), Manual. mine (Manual)
----------------------------------------------------------------
I CHANGED : THESE TO AUTOMATIC
"Volume Shadow Copy" (VSS), Manual - Mine (Manual)
- "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" (SWPRV), Manual. mine (Manual)
NOT SURE IF THIS HELPED, I CAN'T TELL UNLESS I RUN SYSTEM RESTORE.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I UNINSTALL THE PICASA AND STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM, THEN I NOTICED THE PROGRAM THAT WAS OPENING MY PICTURES WAS SET TO "IRFANVIEW" - I CHANGED THAT BACK TO "MICROSOFT WINDOW VIEWER"
REINSTALLED PICASA, IT WORKED!

Hi, have,
I have exactly same problem like what you described here. I just followed everything you wrote here and almost solve the problem. Only I am not sure that how I change to "Micrsoft widow viewer"? Would you like to explain to me?
thanks!
