    System Restore won't restore


    I have a problem that is as insoluble (to me) as it is serious: System Restore seems broken. It exits with this less-than-helpful err msg: An unknown error occurred during system restore. (0x80070091).
    For completeness I took partial screen shots the whole way during my last attempt so it will be a loong post - I beg your indulgence.

    All seems well so far, then this:

    System Restore won't restore [​IMG]

    System restore could not be performed. Files and settings have not been changed.
    Information:
    System restore was aborted when the folder was to be restored from the restore point.
    Source: AppxStaging
    Destination: %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps
    An unknown error occurred during system restore. (0x80070091)You can attempt restoring from a different restore point. If this error occurs again you can try an advanced restore method.

    I can hardly imagine a less helpful err msg. And what is meant by 'advanced restore method'? I am completely at sea here; any and all help is much appreciated!
    Thank you.

    :)

  3. system restore won't restore

    I have set up restore points, but after selecting one and clicking "next", the screen defaults to "end" without actuating the restore process. I have tried the operation in safe mode, with the same result. Is there a solution, or will I have to reinstall
    Windows 10 to overcome the problem.

    Rename the WindowsApps folder, reboot the system and try a system restore should cure the issue.

    Thank you FreeBooter. Sorry about being so dense but 1) Rename it to what? 2) Where is the folder situated?

    System Restore won't restore

    Right after I wrote this last post something happened here which made all my computer woes seem insignificant. I am still recovering from/dealing with this. Please excuse my 'dissapearing from the radar'.
    Thanks to FreeBooter and dalchina, I will leave the dicussion now.
