Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

I had the same problem after upgrading from Vista Home Basic to 7 Home Premium.
Also could not create a restore point.
Spent 2 Days solid looking through forums etc. and this is what I've found. (If you've solved your problem, then I apologise in advance).

This is what worked for me.

Go into System Protection and turn off the system protection for your hard drive(s). Re-boot computer, then turn on system protection for your drive(s), create a restore point, then run a back-up.
It worked first time for me, after spending hours and hours trying to solve this little problem.

Good luck!

I strongly recommend using an external drive for backups.

DVDs are troublesome and many. 1 external drive can hold many backups.

I use an external usb drive for backups.
