Windows 10: System Restore headache

    System Restore headache


    My situation is this....after loads of searching and trying various things, I can now do manual restore points but don't get automatic restore points nor can I configure ....I always get the "Access denied error 0x80070005". I am the Administrator.
    Microsoft Software Shadow and Volume Shadow Copy have now been set to automatic, a s/f/scannow revealed some errors but only some could be rectified and chkdsk stated no errors. I know I am not alone in having trouble with SR in W10 but have still to find the ultimate solution.
    Help appreciated.

    You probably should try doing a repair upgrade by downloading latest iso, double clicking on it and running setup.exe.

    Hi, please see ideas here:
    System Restore error. 0x80070005. Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums

    The easiest is to delete restore points, disable system restore, re-enable it.

    Not sure what you mean.....is it the Anniversary update?
    Tried to do that and the damn thing froze after 91 per cent. Seems another common fault.

    You can try resetting the service, see if that fixes the issues, Startup Repair may fix the issues, but of course there's more to this then what might be readily apparent.

    Know that there's lots of possible conflicts between W10, WSR, and your wide variety of programs. So it may be time consuming to eliminate the conflict one-by-one. Not to say it's impossible but it's definitely a challenge and then you're faced with removing a service you may rely on.

    Ultimate Solution? Replace WSR. There's alternative 3rd party programs that work on-par with WSR but improve on the overall formula, these programs (Snapshot programs) work really well if you want something like WSR that works. Programs like Comodo Time Machine and RollBack Rx offer freeware programs. There's paid versions, which may be more for you, but the freeware versions should provide the basic functionality that you need.
    Thanks. Might have to resort to doing that.

    And I'd repeat the idea of doing an in-place repair install. #2.

    Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

    For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    - this includes a link from which you can obtain Windows 10 iso file (" download a Windows 10 ISO"), or create a bootable medium.

    I would recommend creating the bootable medium, as this can be used
    - for any future in-place upgrade repair install
    - to boot from and use its recovery options should Windows become unbootable.
    - to clean install Windows

    This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
    - all/most associations will be unchanged
    - all your programs will be left installed
    - you will lose any custom fonts
    - you will lose any customised system icons
    - you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
    - you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
    - Windows.old will be created
    - system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
    - you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)
    - inactive title bar colouring (if used) will be reset to default
    - if Qttabbar is installed, you need to re-enable it in explorer (Options, check Qttabbar)
    This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, and as updates are mostly cumulative, there will be few to do.

    Recommendation:
    Before you perform this major repair procedure, do create a disk image.

    Please consider using disk imaging regularly. It's a brilliant way to
    - preserve your system (and your sanity)
    - back up your data
    - restore your system to a previously working state in a relatively short time

    Recommended: Macrium Reflect (free/commercial) + boot disk/device + large enough external storage medium.
