    Creating a Restore Point -- Folder says (Missing) - Why?


    Want to create new restore point . The win10 default has Win C (system) set to OFF; and Win C Folder stating MISSING. Why saying MISSING?

    What is difference? And which should I turn ON (enable) to create new point -- C System or C Folder?

    Hi, please see resolved thread

    (c:) (MIssing)

    Did you clone your system drive? It's suggested that can give rise to this:

    Yes, I use Casper image clone for "C" backups. I obviously used wrong search argument for my search, sorry.
    I'm about to read your links, Thanks

    I had an incredibly minor Bluetooth issue on a well maintained/non complex laptop. I tried a restore point and it forced a blue screen of death and a complete USB OS install.

    Beware.

    The method suggested by those on this thread were correct. And to reiterate how simple/easy it was:

    1. Highlighted the line item folder: Windows (C:) (Missing).
    2. Disabled protection by selecting "Configure" then checking the disable protection box near top of config panel.
    3. Entry magically disappeared.
    4. Then highlighted the Windows C (System) line item & clicked "Configure" box.
    5. Selected "Protection" and set space allocation size.
    6. Then clicked "Create" restore point button. (see below)

    Lastly out of curiosity, does anyone have a theory as to how exactly and when this issue is caused? I also attached the earlier Disk Mgmt panel below -- when issue existed.

    Glad that worked out.. Not everyone who clones their disk seems to experience this.
