    Volume Shadow Services & System Restore Points


    I notices that my "Volume Shadow Services"is set to "manual" mode.

    Is it suppose to be set to "automatic" mode?

    Could the fact that it it set to "manual" mode be the reason I'm loosing System Restore Points even though I have 95 GB of storage set aside for these SR points?

    I have Windows 10 Pro, version 1909.

    :)

  2. System restore points are lost

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks you for posting your reply and update.

    I suggest you to check if the Volume Shadow Copy service is running on your computer. This service enables System Restore on a computer. Refer the steps below to check the service.

    • Press Windows + R Keys to open run command.
    • Type services.msc and hit Enter.
    • In the services panel look for the ‘Volume Shadow Copy’.
    • Right click on the service and restart the service.
    • Also set the startup type to ‘Automatic’

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

    System Restore points all disappeared except one system- created point

    See what happens with these steps:

    1) Click win + r keys (simultaneously)
    2) type or copy and paste: services.msc
    3) search on the list for each:
    a) volume shadow copy
    b) microsoft software shadow copy provider

    For each right click and change:
    status > automatic
    services > started

    reboot

    In the event viewer there can be entries related to shadow copies:

    Volume Shadow Services & System Restore Points

    Cannot create a Windows 10 restore point

    You do seem to be having a number of problems on this machine *Sad

    System Restore is at best unreliable, often failing to perform a restore. But you should at least be able to see its Properties page without error. Could be some services it requires aren't running.

    Rather than rely on System Restore, it is a good idea to back up the machine by making a System Image. Macrium Reflect Free is good for that.
