    That's the error message I receive if I try to create a restore point on any of the 10 drives in/attached to my CPU, including the "C" drive. There is an online discussion about this problem that frankly I could not follow, nor produce any results following. Help?

  2. Cannot Create a Restore Point Error 0x8004232c - Windows 10

    For years have been able to create a restore point until recently. One change is I created a virtual drive (.vhd) with a few Gbs to store files and encrypted it with Bitlocker. Not sure if that makes a difference as have had a true crypt drive before without
    restore point problem.

    Now Windows says "restore point couldn't be created for the following reason: The specific volume (which is my C drive) is nested too deeply to participate in the vss operation (0x8004232c)."

    What does that mean and why can't restore points be created for the C drive? What do I need to do to create a restore point. They used to be created automatically but now previous restore points aren't listed like they used to be. I'm not a techie, so
    your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Problem with creating a restore point

    There may be an issue with the registry data of system restore. This can be the reason why you're unable to create a restore point. We will checking the registry data of system restore to see if the data are correct. If not, we may need to edit its data.
    Since we may need to edit the registry, we have to back up it first so that we will have a copy of the data in case something happened to the registry data. You can back up the registry by following the steps
    here. Once you've backed up the registry, follow the steps below to check if the registry of system
    restore are correct:

    • Right click the Windows logo (Start button), and then click Run.
    • In the Run textbox, type regedit.
    • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT
    • Check f you see a folder named SystemRestore. If you cannot see it, you can create one by following these steps:
      • Right-click Windows NT, and then hover your to New.
      • Choose Key.
      • Name the new "Key" as SystemRestore.
    • If you can see the "SystemRestore" folder, click it and check if you can see the DWORD value
      DisableConfig on the right pane. If you just created the "SystemRestore" folder, follow these steps:
      • Click the folder and right-click the space on the right pane.
      • Hover you mouse to New, and then choose DWORD (32-bit) Value.
      • Name the new item as DisableConfig.
    • Right-click "DisableConfig" and select Modify.
    • Change the Value data to 1.

    We'll be waiting for the outcome.
