RPC Server is unavailable RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have my own personal Windows 7 home computer, which has been backing up without problems.  All at once, I am now getting the Action Center error message "The RPC server is unavailable".  What will suddenly cause this problem to start occurring?

    Hi,

     

    If this issue did not occur before, you could try system restore to get back to a previous time point which everything is OK.

     

    If this issue persists, I would like to suggest you check if there any information in Event Viewer.

     

    Meanwhile, where did you want to backup your files? Does this issue occur when you backup to another location?

     

    In addition, you could try process monitor to troubleshoot this issue to see if you could find any clues:

    Hope it helps.

  • I have a computer guy who repairs my machine and he walked me through the obvious things that might be wrong.  We checked that and it is started.  He tried everything he could think of, then suggested I try the Forum for someone with a similar problem.
