    Create restore point fails with VSS error code 0x80042306 in window10 20h2 after upgrade...


    Create restore point fails with VSS error code 0x80042306 in window10 20h2 after upgrade... 1b9a4395-2cb4-4ecc-9fd9-3df832c9bf9a?upload=true.jpg

    I upgradedmy windows7 PC to windows10 20h2 18.2.

    Howeverwhen trying to create restore point for system disk I am getting VSS error0x80042306.

    Followingadvice from MS I again upgraded PC to windows10 20h2.

    Again upgradewent OK, but still same issue.

    So it seemsthat VSS, which was working fine when this PC was in windows7, is somehow brokeafter upgrade to windows10.

    No other backupprograms are running.

    Any suggestions?

    Veeam backups failing since 1803 install with 0x80042306 VSS timeout error

    On desktop machine here, post 1803 update, Veeam backups are repeatably failing. Associated event viewer information:

    Any suggestions?

    Image backup keeps failing - Can't create restore point


    Tried it but it didn't fix my error issue. I see this TAPI2 error in event log every time before VSS error:

    Cryptographic Services failed while processing the OnIdentity() call in the System Writer Object.

    Details:
    AddLegacyDriverFiles: Unable to back up image of binary Microsoft Link-Layer Discovery Protocol.

    System Error:
    Access is denied.


    I found this old thread about TAPI error..
    Event ID 513 — Shadow Copy System Writer Functionality
    When I ran the Verify step, with VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS command, System Writer, WMI Writer and MSSearch Service Writer all failed with Time Out error.
    Spoke to Microsoft Tech support again today. They keep telling me that the EFI partition has to be larger than 300MB. First, I didn't create this partition, the system did and I have no control over changing it. If Windows 10 required a larger partition, shouldn't it have fixed it or at least complained when the upgrade was being installed? Why can't they find any Microsoft document that states this requirement?
    As it stands, I do not have the ability to create a Restore Point since this upgrade and Microsoft tech support is of no help.

    Create restore point fails with VSS error code 0x80042306 in window10 20h2 after upgrade...

    Unable to create a system restore point and previous restore points have disappeared

    for 4 days now I have been unable to create a restore point.

    No new software, not Windows updates, not malware or viruses detected in that time.

    When I click on create button in system protection the resulting dialog box with 'creating a restore point' just sits and the green bar scrolls across the box. Clicking x (after 1 to 4 hours) does nothing.

    Only way to stop it is via the task manager.

    • Yes, VSS, Microsoft Shadow Copy Provider and Windows backup are all running.
    • Yes, all Dependencies of those 3 services are running (DCOM and RPC)
    • Yes I have disabled all services except for Microsoft and disabled all start up entries.
    • I have run CHKDSK /F from command prompt - no issues.
    • I have tried to create a restore point in both normal and safe mode.
    • I have my Anti-Virus and anti-Malware disabled/turned off.
    • I've run SFC / scannow with no resulting errors or issues.
    Initially when I tried to create a system restore I did get a response:

    "The restore point could not be created for the following reasons:

    The shadow copy provider had an error. Check the System and Application event logs for more information (0X80042306)"

    I have researched the error code and complied with all suggested fixes - not different.

    ADDITIONALLY:

    ALL previous Restore points are now missing.

    I create a restore point whenever Microsoft updates are to be installed; when I am installing new software and after any Malware or Virus scan.

    When I last checked (4 days ago) I had 6 restore points this month.

    I have allocated 42gb for restore points in system properties.

    Can anyone offer other possible fixes?

    cheers
