  2. Cannot Create System Restore Point Because Cannot Turn On System Protection

    In Control Panel/System/System Properties/System Protection, "Available Drives," all that is listed is "Searching..." No drives are located, so no System Restore point can be established.

    How to fix?

    I have an extensive active thread in another area of the community dealing with the failure of this PC to install the latest Windows 10 update. Prior to executing the next suggested step to fix that problem I need to create a System Restore point, so a
    solution to this issue must be found before I can move forward on the major problem.

    YES, I have ALREADY run the SFC Command as Administrator and the report was that everything was A-OK.

    Is There a Way To Protect System Restore?

    So I just got off trying to fix my dad's computer, for the 2nd time in a few months, because it has some kind of malware or trojan on it. The first thing I always go to to fix his system is system restore because he doesn't make many changes, if any at all, to windows, software, or basically anything system restore restores other than updating windows. But the last few times he's had various problems system restore, with either has it's restore points being deleted or restore won't even start up. So basically I really need help finding a way to either password protect system restore (preferably for free), get a 3rd restore program that won't get disabled by this malware crap, or any other alternative. I really appreciate any help you can give me because I've had this happen to a few computers that have come my way to fix and i wish there where a way to stop it.

    Edit: Just found a program call Settings Lock (Settings Lock 2.7.0 (slarc.exe) Unix, Windows, Other Download) that I tested and it did successfully stop me from turning off system restore or changing it--but it's $25 and i'm not sure if restore could be turned off another other than my gui interface with that program so i'm still hoping to find something better or at least hear some more info about it.

    System restore not available even though protection settings are on

    System protection setting from On to Off.

    Hi Frank,

    You can perform a System Restore regardless if the System Protection setting is turned On or Off. The reason why System Protection needs to be turned On is to generate a restore point automatically when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update. For
    us to better assist you with this, we'd like to ask for the exact error message when you try running performing a System Restore?

    Please follow the steps below to turn On/Off System Protection:

    • Press Windows key + R to open Run dialog.
    • Type Control Panel, then hit Enter.
    • Set View by: Small icons, then select System.
    • In the left pane, click System protection.
    • Under System Protection tab, you will see Local Disk (CSystem restore not available even though protection settings are on :) (System) is
      On.
    • Click Local Disk (CSystem restore not available even though protection settings are on :) (System) to highlight it, then click
      Configure
      .
    • Under Restore Settings, you will see the option to turn On/Off
      System Protection.
    • Click Apply.
    • Click OK.
    Note: Under Disk Space Usage, you may adjust the maximum disk space for system protection.

    We're looking forward to your reply.
