    System restore error - can't open SR never mind use it? [​IMG]


    Hi, so I'm seriously struggling with the above error on Windows 10 64. All bang up to date.

    It's what I get when I access the system protection tab in system.

    And before you ask, I've enabled the system volume and microsoft volume shadow services - no dice.

    I've been getting some windows lock ups - and I am wondering if whatever is behind this error is behind those.

    I've also tried the 'not configured' thing in groups configuration properties etc.

    Nothing seems to make any difference. I did the DISM health check and sfc /scannow etc. Not a thing.

    Any advice here?

    :)

    System Restore error

    Hi Alex,

    It is possible that the service of System Restore did not run right away. This can be the reason why you're seeing an error log in the Event Viewer. If you can use your computer smoothly and if you can run System Restore without any issues, it means that
    the error that you saw in the Event Viewer is already resolved.

    If you're having an issue using System Restore, there may be an issue with the hard drive of your computer. This may also be the reason why you're encountering the error code 0x80070057 in Event Viewer. We suggest that you run the "check disk" command to
    check the hard drive of your computer. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Right-click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the command window, type chkdsk /f, and then press
      Enter
      .
    • Press the letter "Y" on your keyboard, and then press Enter.
    • Restart your computer start the "check disk" process.

    Let us know how it goes.

    System Restore error

    The "mstdc.log" file is a transaction log file of Windows operating systems. Since it is a log file, it should not affect the performance of your system. Also, the error that you're getting with that log file is not connected to the System Restore error
    code you're seeing in the Event Viewer. If you want to make sure that System Restore is functioning properly, you can also disable and re-enable it. Please take note that by disabling System Restore, you lose your restore points. To disable and re-enable System
    Restore, follow these steps:

    • Access System Restore by searching using Cortana.
    • Click Configure.
    • Choose Disable system protection.
    • Click Apply, and the press OK.
    • Click Configure again.
    • Choose Turn on system protection.
    • Click Apply, and the press OK.
    • Click OK.

    If you do not encounter any issues while doing the steps above, it means that System Restore is working properly.

    Let us know how it goes.
