    Need recovery advice


    Back in May of this year, I posted about a problem I was having at that time. Here's the original post:
    Laptop seems to be in Recovery mode - what now?
    I got some suggestions but was busy with other things so I simply didn't touch the laptop again for a while.

    Yesterday, I finally took a stab at the problem again and failed to resolve it. Here's what I tried and what happened:
    • Checked the Windows version with the "ver" command at the command prompt and got: 10.0.17763.107
    • Tried System Restore from most recent point (5/14/2019) but failed: "System restore failed while mounting the registry from the restore point. 0x80070020."
    • Tried System Restore from the previous point but failed: "System restore failed while mounting the registry from the restore point. 0x80070020."
    • Tried Startup Repair but failed: "Startup repair couldn't fix your PC. Logfile: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\srt\SrtTrail.txt"
    • Tried "Reset this PC keeping my files" but failed: I was 89% through the reset when I left the room briefly to do a 10 minute chore; when I got back, the screen said "undoing changes" which was soon replaced with "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made."

    Any idea what's going on with my laptop or what I should try next based on your assessment of what's wrong?

    I have a backup of the most critical source code from that laptop so if I had to wipe the hard drive and start over, I wouldn't lose anything too critical but I'd rather restore it without having to reinstall a bunch of apps and copy all the source back if I could avoid it.
