Can not make a Restore Points anymore!
« on: January 28, 2012, 12:12:10 PM »
Dear Tweaking.com,

First of all thanks a lot for your very well equipped Repair Tool! Outstanding and CHAPEAU for this!!

I suffer since December last year that suddenly I could not make a Restore Point anymore. I have tried several suggestion that I found on internet but sofar nothing could help me. Even the support team of Microsoft could not help me they suggested a total new Windows 7 Ultimate, which I have as an OS, installation.

I wonder if you could add a repair tool, at your outstanding list of 21 tools, to repair failure in making Restore Points.

Thanks a lot, and please let me know by email if you have added a repair tool for this.

Thanks again,

Folkert Scholte

The only problem is I cant find any repair steps to fix it. MS lists nothing.

Instead of a fresh install a repair install has fixed it for them :wink:

Thanks for your very quick reply.

I have tried that too, but at point 5 where it starts to transfer programs, Files etc. the installation stops at 62% and then it resatores the old version again.

I'am using Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks anyway for you help and understanding.

 :wink:

Never seen it stop half way through before!

Something must be stopping it from continuing. The setup thinks it is during an upgrade, so somewhere during that it hits a hard error and says, oops, cant do this and then undoes the upgrade.

If you have that kind of errors on the system then a fresh install would be best. :wink:

I would love to be able to add a repair for the system restore. But until MS or someone finds what steps are needed to repair it I cant get it added.
