  2. System Restore and backup restore not working on Windows 10

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    I understand you are unable to perform System restore on your Windows 10 computer. This might be due to a corruption in the restore service. I suggest you to check the service which helps you perform a System restore.

    Method 1: Check the Volume Shadow Copy Service.

    Check the Volume shadow copy service in services window. To check follow these steps:

    1. Type “Services” in the search box.

    2. Right Click on Services and “Run it as an Administrator”.

    3. Check for “Volume Shadow Copy” Service.

    4. Set the status to “Started” and Startup type to “Automatic”.

    Also check the dependency services that are required for Volume Shadows Copy Service to run.
    To check that double click on the service and click on the
    Dependency tab.

    If the issue persists, you may try disabling the antivirus program on the computer to check if it helps.

    Method 2: Disable security software on the system.

    Disable Antivirus and security-related products, if you have any Antivirus installed for (Free) uninstall it, if not then disable the Antivirus, try again to update and check if issue is resolved.

    Disclaimer: Antivirus software helps protecting your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you
    have to temporarily disable it to install other software and\or troubleshoot any pertinent issue, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is
    vulnerable to malware attacks

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    System Restore and backup restore not working on Windows 10

    Original title:- Cannot restore backups, system image reset.

    I had a problem with my op system and needed to restore. My restore points all did not work, My system image and all of my backups are on a drive that Windows says that I have to format before I can use it. My ISO disk says that the information they need
    to reinstall is missing on my PC. What am I suppose to do.. I cannot fix Windows without purchasing another copy?

    System Restore Not Working

    It's a known issue. There are at least 2 long-running threads about it. MS knows and is working on a fix but the timing is unknown at this points. You should make backups with third party software like Macrium, either free or paid versions and let MS find a permanent fix. There are temporary work arounds but unless your an advanced, user I would avoid them for now.

    This is a known problem. So far the main 'workaround' seems to be the rather drastic measure of deleting the WindowApps folder (with consequent loss of functionality). There's a long thread on this here...
    System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091

    For my part I rely on taking regular system images should I need to restore to an earlier date and await a fix from Microsoft.
     
  6. OK thanks for that I will plug along and get this sorted.

  7. You may try one or more of the steps :

    1. Try to create a System Restore point manually and make a note of the Error Message you get. If you don’t get one, check if one has been created or not.
    2. Disable yourantivirus or security software and then try to create a system restore point.

    3. Boot intoSafe Mode and see if you create a system restore point or restore to a prior restore point. Many times, non-Microsoft services or Drivers can interfere with the proper functioning of System Restore. Alternatively, you could also execute a Clean Boot and see if you are able to get system restore working.

    4. Run the System File Checker, i.e., Run sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt. Reboot on completion and try now.

    5. Run Check Disk, by opening an elevated command prompt. Type chkdsk /f /r and hit Enter. Let the process complete and then try again.

    6. Make sure that System Restore is enabled on the drives where you want System Restore enabled. Right-click Computer > Properties > System Protection. Check Protection settings. To store restore points, you need at least 300 MB of free space on each hard disk that has System Protection turned on.

    7. Make sure that you have sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled.
