    cannot increase shadow capacity for System Restore


    I have never had success with System Restore in the past, it might have been because I had antivirus enabled before going into one. I think I may be able to trust System Restore once I can learn why I come across its problems.

    Today I tried increasing the "shadow storage" for the System Restore, so that I would be able to hold more restore points. I tried setting the dial to 50% (about 150GB), but it wouldn't let me. Instead I was given the error message below. This also happened after dialing it down to 10%. System Restore does not like me

    Is it a good idea to disable antivirus/antimalware shields before proceeding with the restore?

    In the past, I have NEVER had success with System Restore, always came out of it with an error. Because of this, my system has been factory reinstalled about 30 times.
    30 times?? Most people do it only once..... when having sever problems. What error did you get when doing "system restore"?

    I can't remember, it's been so long since I've tried using a restore point. I do remember getting an error message.

    Hmm.. my second post was supposed to be the starting post, not sure how the first post got there.

    I would run the SFC scannow tutorial to make sure all files that can be fixed are repaired.. Then make a restore pt.. and use Erundt .. free .. for a backup restore pt..

    What is SFC scannow? I tried searching for Erundt.. wasn't pulling up in the search listings, I think you meant Erunt??

    I think I found something, it looks like I have protection On for 2 drives. I have no idea what the OS folder is doing there, or how it got there, or why it says its missing. This is a newly reinstalled system.
