Hello Julian,

Did vssadmin delete shadows /for=c:.   The reponse: no items found for this query (image 1)
Then disabled system restore and subsequently turned it on again (image 3)
Tried making a restore point, but received an error again (image 4)

Do I need to adjust the size of usage for the disc (image 5)
Anything else I can try?

P.S. I suddenly noticed that Image 5 shows the properties for the external hard disk, so I've included new image (6) that shows the internal C drive. Anything that I need to adjust?
Should the current usage state something instead of 0 bytes?

The vssadmin list writers shows the following (image 7)

The error message reads:
Restore point could not be made.
A component of the Volume Shadow Copy-service encountered an unexpected error. Check the logs for the application for more information (0x80042302).
Try again.

Hi Julian,

This part you need to guide me through:
How do I back up reg
How do I merge
How to open up services and restart com+event system

when you do the vssadmin list writers command it should no longer be blank you should see around 9 writers on there. if it shows writers then i want you to try and make a restore point.

Hi Julian,

I was just starting to look for the Dutch equivalent for services, but no need for that now. I'll restart whole system and run vssadmin list writers.
Should have some results shortly.

Hi Julian,

It looked promising...see image 9.
Then it says.. internal error.

Or should I have restarted Volume Shadow Copy first?

OK, there's nothing after eventclass\, so I right clicked eventclass and exported the file. It's attached. Is that what you needed?

Damn.... get another error message:

Translated:

There's insufficient storage to create a storagefile for Shadowcopies or related info (0x8004231F). Try again.

I suppose the storage settings can be altered?

hmmmm could be that..... vssamin not enough storage....(thinking out loud lol) Permissions can also be it as well mainly file permission... got it! so turn off and on system restore in the system protection tab on system properties. try creating a restore point if it fails then i want you to run the windows repair program run all the repairs just in case lol but i believe this actually is narrowed down to being permission related.
