Windows 10: Restore point error
Restore point error
When I manually try and make a restore point using the windows program it ends with a property page error.
It still does the restore point ok and seems to work all right if I need to use that point to restore
no error notifications pop up using the System Restore Point shortcut tool or when system does a restore point when adding new programs or drivers.
So my best guess is the error is showing up because this page is open
Does it on two machines running Home 10586.14
In the past I've had mixed success with restore points. These days I make a system image anytime I have a system change. Much more reliable.
I agree with KACI. That said, what could you try? I suggest turning system restore off, reboot, then on again, then try again.
If you get the same error, you could have a look at the event log and see if there's any other hint.
You say you have encountered this on 2 PCs. So, did these ever create restore points successfully since installing Win 10? If so, what is unique to their configuration now?
System - Microsoft Community
- not the same error no. but it may be worth searching generally for 'system restore property page' and similar.
Try sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt.
All good now on one machine no errors popping up my best guess is Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3116908) fixed it or running sfc /scannow a few times.
Will run sfc /scan and have a look at error logs on other machine
edit.. came good after sfc scan.
I had ran sfc scans before to try and fix this error with no positive results.
Both machines running well
thx for the replies

Third party AV can interfere with System restore. Do you have any installed ?
No other AV only defender
If I Posted this previously, I don't think I did, I apologize.
That old age thing.
Concerning Restore Points on W10.
My understanding is that these are created "automatically".
Or, you can do it "Manually".
After I clean installed Win 10, and then installed many programs that I normally use. And when the computer worked just the way I wanted - I decided to set the Restore Point right then.
Then I started (doing foolish things)...
So why did Microsoft change this? If I remember correctly all previous versions would create a system restore point before doing Microsoft updates. Since 10 installed all updates that come in for me are downloaded and installed without a restore...
I updated my build this morning to build 10130 and everything on my system seems to be running so nice and smooth that I wanted to create a restore point. When I open the System Protection pane to create a restore point, everything is grayed out and...
After many, many attempts... installs, reinstalls, upgrades, ISO installs, the whole journey, I still cannot get a restore point to restore without messing up! No problem creating, no problem actually restoring, from control panel or boot. But...
