Windows7 tip does not work for me

My new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium is as follows:
Toshiba Satelite C850 PSKC9A-01N00Q,Intel Dc Celeron B820
2GB,320Gb 15.6"WXGA Glare Screen,DVDRW
WiFi, Lan,HDMI,Wabcam,Windows 7 Home Prem.
I am new to Windows 7 so was reading John Wilkinson's tips which are indeed helpful to find my way around.
One of the issues I would like to adjust is System Restore. I tried the following tip but was told it was an invalid command.
<div>"Unlike with XP, there is no easy slider option to adjust the maximum space used, but you can still do so using the command line. To do so, press Windows + R and type in cmd followed by pressing Enter.) When the command prompt appears, type in the following, entering the correct drive letters and intended size: vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=C: /on=C: /maxsize=5GB (This is just an example - be sure you enter the desired drive letter and maximum size you desire.)"
I followed John's instructions to the letter so wondered why it does not work.
