Change the folder using the mini-explorer to choose the exact folder where you want to place or retrieve image. Best to put it in the root (example: C) of the partition or drive.

If this is not the problem then please describe it in more detail.

If you are saying when you try to open Backup and restore, System32 folder opens instead. I'd think it best to run the System File Checker:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you are using 3rd party themes, you will have to patch your system again after to continue using those themes. A Guy

Hi,
I have the same problem. SFC /scannow did not find any issues. I already tried a full system restore and a clean boot, but that didn't solve the problem.
This is a brand new Acer Aspire M3300.

thx

Hello terraerm, sometime it takes running the SFC several times to repair the files, try another time or two.
