System restore : No windows folder


I try to use system restore but there are no windows drive in the last step regardless the restoration point.
Instead I get :
1, No drive found

I tried in normal, safe mode and in recover mode.

I used
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /rebuildbcd

My windows partition is C:. It is active, sain and system. I did not compressed or encrypted the drive

I ran sfc /scannow. There were some errors that were fixed.

I'm still able to boot but no way to restore.

Any ideas to help me restore ?

Thank you for your help.

The issue has been solved by disabling/enabling the system restore on the c Drive. (This operation must delete previous restore point !!!)

I can't say what caused that. It may have been caused by using Easus partition master.

Without sucess I tried to install the fix mentionnend here:
