Hi there.
There a few alternatives for you you do, lets try the best known one,
Click on the start menu (orb), then click on all programs, from the list click on accessories and then click on system tools and in that list you will see system restore, click on that and you should be able to create a restore point from that window.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    Hi,


    Type services.msc in the search bar and make sure Volume Shadow Copy is stopped. Then locate and delete any "System Volume Information" folders on the root of any volume that was previously being monitored by System Restore. You may need to alter Folder Options/View tab/Advanced in order to see these protected system folders. Reboot the system and retry system restore.
    If you need any help or detailed advice please post back.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    Ok,
    Go to the control panel, in control panel look for and click on Folder Options, then select the view tab, in the view tab select Show hidden files and folders, and un-tick/check the box which says Hide protected operating system files and click ok, a warning will pop up but click OK.
    Then, type services.msc in the search bar, you will see it appear at the top, click on that and the services window will pop up, in the list look for Volume Shadow Copy and stop the service.
    Then click on computer and click on local disk c and have a look in disk c for any "System Volume Information" folders and delete them.
    Restart the PC and try to set a restore point again, to re-hide the system folders just do what i said in reverse in folder options.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    it should be letting you delete them. is the UAC (user account control) still on? By this i mean does it ask your permission to do stuff like install a program or go into a certain folder?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    is it saying to you "access denied"?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    or, cannot delete this folder because it may being used by another program or file?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    Go through the whole process again, apart from folder options but this time do it in safe mode.
    Do you know how to get it into safe mode?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    No problem, i will reply to you

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson May 30, 2009

    Go to drive c, right-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder, and then click Properties.
    Click the Security tab.
    Click Add, and then type the name of
    the user to whom you want to give access to the folder. Typically, this
    is the account with which you are logged on. Click OK, and then click OK again.
    Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to open it.

    Then try and delete whatever is inside the folder.

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    As soon as you have told it to show hidden files and system files just look on the other drives for the system volume information folders, just like you did with C drive.
    Delete the files and reboot the PC.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    Have you managed to delete a folder from any other drive?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    It sounds to me that system maybe corrupt or possibly virus or malware infected.
    We have done everything we possibly can to get it to delete them folders if you have to for one last try, on the other drives right-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder, and then click Properties.
    Click the Security tab.
    Click Add, and then type the name of
    the user to whom you want to give access to the folder. Typically, this
    is the account with which you are logged on. Click OK, and then click OK again.
    Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to open it and delete the files.
    If this does not work you maybe looking at system recovery.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    It won't affect anything, what you are trying to do here is delete the file that system restore is monitoring so you can set a new restore point.
    If you have to recover the system then of course your programs and settings will be affected because you will be taking it back to when it left the factory so if you have to do this its a good idea to back up all of your data first like your music, pics, docs etc.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    You managed to clear the restore points on the other drives?

  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    Ok.
    Now you've cleared the restore points from the other drives, restart your PC and try to set another restore point like you first did.
    Let me know how you get on.


  • Lee Hodgson
    Lee Hodgson Jun 01, 2009

    Corrupt system !!!
    Back up your data and recover the system using your restore CD/DVD or the recovery partition.

No audio on speakers or headset. Both worked fine a few days ago. Activity is visible on mixer for speakers or headset (symbol bottom right), when music program is chosen. Relevant data: PC Vaio...


The error states file access denied.
It seems your login is not able to access that specified file
due to permission constraint.
  • Firstly disable UAC.
  • If you have mcaffee installed or norton, disable access protection.
  • If you created a system restore point with the True Crypt image mounted, you won't be able to restore back to that point. It needs to be unmounted before creating the restore point.
  • If you use Panda Internet Security you need to uninstall it completely in order to be able to restore to a previous point.
Before trying the above solutions you can try the following that exploit a bug on windows:
  1. turn off System Restore,
  2. Shutdown,
  3. Power Up,
  4. enable System Restore and
  5. try to Restore.
Best of luck.

Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically


If Startup repair is not working then use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix windows registry errors or restore windows to an earlier state:
Restore computer/ windows 7:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.Click on the System Restore program icon.
Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.Choose the restore point that you want to use.

Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose earlier.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Restoration problem


How often are restore points created?
Restore points are created automatically every day, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. You can also create a restore point manually.

How much hard disk space does System Restore require?
To store restore points, you need at least 300 megabytes (MB) of free space on each hard disk that has System Protection turned on. System Restore might use up to 15 percent of the space on each disk. As the amount of space fills up with restore points, System Restore will delete older restore points to make room for new ones.

How long are restore points saved?
Restore points are saved until the hard disk space System Restore reserves is filled up. As new restore points are created, old ones are deleted. If you turn off System Protection (the feature that creates restore points) on a disk, all restore points are deleted from that disk. When you turn System Protection back on, new restore points are created.

The restore point is a built in utility by microsoft, you can't have the option to configure the settings!!!

My computer is not creating Restore Points... yes it's turned on... yes I know how to do a manual... but it disappears when the next Restore Point is created... can you help?


Creating a System Restore point using a shortcut For a more elegant way to create a System Restore point using Script in Windows Vista, check out our article Create System Restore Points Quickly using Script in Windows Vista and Windows XP.
Alternately, you may use the method below:
Copy the contents below to a Notepad document, and save it to a file name with .vbs extension (Example: createrp.vbs) and close Notepad.
set SRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
CSRP = SRP.createrestorepoint ("Created a Restore Point now", 0, 100)
If CSRP <> 0 then
Msgbox "Error " & CSRP & ": Unable to create System Restore point"
End if
Right-click on the Desktop and select New - Shortcut
Create a shortcut with the following target:
wscript.exe c:\scripts\createrp.vbs
Note: The above assumes that the createrp.vbs script is present in the c:\scripts folder. If that's not the case, change the Path accordingly.
Name the shortcut file name as Create Restore Point
Running the script To create a System Restore point, run the script with elevated mode. To do so, right-click on the newly created shortcut (Create Restore Point.lnk) and choose Run as administrator. When you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. A System Restore point will automatically be created.

Hello. I am running vista home ultimate 64bit. Manually I am unable to create a restore point. Error message 0x8004230F unexpected error for shadow copy provider. I have check in the computer management...


Sometimes, Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit will not allow to create a restore point as it is self scheduled to create its own restore system restore points.

To over-come this: turn the system off, press the on button and keep pressing the F8 button to get into Safe Mode. Once you are in Safe Mode, go to the System Restore and then create a Restore Point. Once you have done this, shut down and restart the system, you will then see your restore point that you have created.

Hope this helps
