System Restore Problems RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I tried to manually create a restore point, but got the following message:

    The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the specified operation. (0x8004230f)

     

    Any ideas?

     

    Thanks.

  • Thanks, but I figured out my problem. It was easy--I forgot to restart the computer. After I did that, I was able to do it. (I tried another response from other sources before I posted here.)
    But, I'll keep this in mind!

    Hi,

     

    Please check for the existence of the following files at the %windir%\system32 directory:

     

    Srrstr.dll

    Srclient.dll

    Srcore.dll

    Rstrui.exe

     

    After that, try steps below to re-register core files:

     

    1.   You will only be able to re-register the file srcore.dll.

    2.   Launch an elevated command prompt

    3.   From the command prompt type the following command:

    Regsvr32 srcore.dll

    4.  Insert the Windows Vista disk and type the following command:

    sfc /scannow

     

    Hope it helps.
