Windows 7: System Protection to create Restore Point only works in manual mode

System Protection to create Restore Point only works in manual mode

I have a Win7-64-Pro comp where something happened to it will not create/save Any automatic restore points. When I click on "Show more restore points" it only shows the current day's manual restore point that I do each day even tho the schedule seems to correctly show the daily schedule that I previously set up.

I have a 2nd Win7-64-Pro that works ok.

Is there some easy way I can fix the bad one such as by copying the create/restore folder from the good one or ??????.

Hi Robis99,

open system restore >> config.

How much space is allocated, and are you copying all or just some parts.
If these are identical to your other comp
from an elevated command mode run
sfc /scannow
and KB947821 (SURT)
post the results (zip) from C >> windows >> logs >> cbs )top text file and bottom SURT

torchwood,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Please clarify, I'm a little fuzzy on some of what you sent.

1. Space allocated is 10% (100GB)

2. I'm not sure what you mean with "are you copying all or just some parts".
I only mentioned "copying" if it is possible to copy just the Create/Restore folder(??) from 1 comp to another to fix my problem.

3. I understand you want me to run sfc /scannow
4. I looked up KB947821 and understand you want me to run the SURT and then post part of the CBS file.
5. Please point me to the instructions for posting a file.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob,

1) 10% 100 GB is plenty.
2) on the window after you hit config it has 3 choices basically all, some or none.
just copying the files/folders from another comp is dicey in this case,
thats why i asked you to run those 2 repair tools (3 & 4)

5) follow this tutorial to upload.

Roy,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

1. I ran scannow and the KB (had to find a Win7-64 version)

2. I did not find any "3 choices basically all, some or none" in System Create/Restore or anywhere else.

3. The resultant files are CheckSUR.log and CheckSUR.persist.log (they are both text files)
Both files are only about 500 bytes.
Do I really have to zip them or can I just attach them (I'm not sure how to zip)

Thanks for your patience.

OOOps Sorry Rob,

missed the reply

System restore options, see screenshot.

W7 has a built in Zip function.
both of these please
CBS
SURT

Right click - send to - compressed zip folder, this creates a new folder
in your next reply - click on the paperclip - browse to the new folder - upload

Hi Rob,

they came back clean..

Lets try another route,
Any 3rd Party Optimiser/cleaner program installed, possible they have a Restore point deletion setting in use.
(including your AV)

Do you have any repair discs --

Read some of your previous posts - is this the BIG one , photos included ??
or the Cloned OS.
(note a System Images is better than a clone, they carry disk problems/errors with them)

You can delete restore points using Ccleaner.

Just right tick on the one/s you want to remove. You will not be able to remove the last restore point made.
