    Backup and Restore not working


    I am using pre rtm build with all updates installed. I can't get backup and restore to complete a system image. It fails with message about failure in preparing the backup. Does it work for anyone?

    :)

  2. System Restore and backup restore not working on Windows 10

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    I understand you are unable to perform System restore on your Windows 10 computer. This might be due to a corruption in the restore service. I suggest you to check the service which helps you perform a System restore.

    Method 1: Check the Volume Shadow Copy Service.

    Check the Volume shadow copy service in services window. To check follow these steps:

    1. Type “Services” in the search box.

    2. Right Click on Services and “Run it as an Administrator”.

    3. Check for “Volume Shadow Copy” Service.

    4. Set the status to “Started” and Startup type to “Automatic”.

    Also check the dependency services that are required for Volume Shadows Copy Service to run.
    To check that double click on the service and click on the
    Dependency tab.

    If the issue persists, you may try disabling the antivirus program on the computer to check if it helps.

    Method 2: Disable security software on the system.

    Disable Antivirus and security-related products, if you have any Antivirus installed for (Free) uninstall it, if not then disable the Antivirus, try again to update and check if issue is resolved.

    Disclaimer: Antivirus software helps protecting your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you
    have to temporarily disable it to install other software and\or troubleshoot any pertinent issue, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is
    vulnerable to malware attacks

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    System Restore and backup restore not working on Windows 10

    Original title:- Cannot restore backups, system image reset.

    I had a problem with my op system and needed to restore. My restore points all did not work, My system image and all of my backups are on a drive that Windows says that I have to format before I can use it. My ISO disk says that the information they need
    to reinstall is missing on my PC. What am I suppose to do.. I cannot fix Windows without purchasing another copy?
