    Create restore point not working (error)


    In previous versions of Windows 10, I could create restore points by typing the related phrase then clicking the item in the Start menu.

    Now I have Windows 10 Pro 1809 (17763.195) and I can still launch Create restore point via Start menu, but I get this message:


    C:\Windows\system32\SystemPropertiesProtection.exe
    Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item.

    System restore point automatic create not working....need help.


    Were you seeing CAPI2 errors with Macrium & System Restore.

    And after enabling system protection.
    1) Does System Protection automatically create and populate checkpoints to list.
    Does System Protection create restore points when called by a program and populate checkpoints to list.

    2) I'd like to confirm whether my issue is unique to me or common.
    My issue is that I can manually create restore points okay and those manual created will populate to my list.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list. Albeit, Task Scheduler shows Last Run time change.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list e.g., with Windows Updates.
    When create restore point is called by a program. I see activity that suggest restore point is being created ...but, again the activity does not translate to an entry in my list.

    Update: Event Viewer seems to suggest >

    Successfully created restore point (Process = C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\wmiprvse.exe; Description = O&O ShutUp10).
    Successfully created restore point (Process = C:\Program Files\HitmanPro\HitmanPro.exe Files\HitmanPro\HitmanPro.exe" ; Description = Checkpoint by HitmanPro).

    Successfully created (if true) is not populating to Restore your computer to the state... list.

    I'm also seeing Error VSS & Error CAP12

    Most of Event Viewer is over-my-pay-grade.
