    Windows Data Protect crash

    I'm having an intermittent occurrence of Microsoft Windows Error Reporting application popping up after loading Windows 10, with a message that says "Windows Data Protect has stopped working."

    This message hangs for a minute or two, then goes away. I cannot tell if the problem is being fixed automatically, or if it is just going away.

    What is Windows Data Protect, and why does it keep crashing?

    Well, I guess you mean "Windows Data Protection"
    Pretty technical (and very old I'm afraid.. hopefully you can find sthg more up to date with more time):
    Windows Data Protection

    What can you do?
    You will find more information from the relevant Event Log reports, (see Event Viewer) which may point you in the right direction.

    Hopefully someone familiar with such issues will be able to help.

    You can also do basic checks like
    chkdsk C: /F
    run SFC /scannow
    from an elevated command prompt.

    Worth doing to establish a base line.

    - have you clean installed Win 10?
    - or have you upgraded?

    Does this happen if you do a clean boot?
