Access Denied using Windows Recovery Wizard trying to Recover system state

Hello I have a Windows 2008 R2 server 64bits.

The server is a member server.

I recently had a problem on a server and restored JUST the system state to an old version from Nov 14 2014 using the Windows Recovery Wizard. Before the restore I create a Full Backup, just in case I ran into any problems.

The system State recovery was successful.

However, I realized that I needed to go back to a recent System state stored on the backup I previously created before the System State Recovery was performed.

Now if I try to run the system recovery using the same wizard I get an error:

Access is denied.

on the Event viewer I get the error the event ID : 774
Error reported 2147942405 General Access denied error.
