OK, I've seen loads of posts by people who have lost their system restore and I have tried all suggestions but still have the following problem: I can create a System Restore point OK but when I try and roll back to a previous point, it goes through the motions and when the desktop screen reappears I get the message that System Restore failed. I also checked someone's suggestion and traced a report of error message 8206.
So far I have tried,
SAFE MODE REBOOT and then trying it - no good,
DISABLE/ENABLE - no good
FIDDLING WITH VOLUME SHADOW SETTING - no good.
So, what is there left to do??? I'm at my wits end. I did create a system image a few weeks ago but, for all I know, the System Restore problem might have been there when I did it.
I do NOT have any installation disks as I bought the PC off someone with Windows 7 already installed. All I have is a System Repair disk that I created early on (maybe the problem was not there when I created the disk months ago). Is there any way I can rebuild the registry settings even though I don't have installation disks??
On a slightly different point, am I too late now to do a disk partition??. Windows was already loaded on my PC and I added all my programs & files. However, they are on the one c: drive. Ideally I would like a separate partition for the OS but I fear it's too late as it's all mixed in together and I wouldn't be able to separate out the OS from all the other things. Is this correct??
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions, especially about Sytem Restore as I think I've tried everything!
