  • Hi,

    I suggest you perform the following suggestions to resolve this issue:

    Step 1:

    1. Click "Start", type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the open box and press Enter.
    2. Double click the service "Volume Shadow Copy Service".
    3. Click on the "General" tab; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the "Start" button under "Service Status" to start the service.

    Step 2: Run sfc /scannow to check your system.

    Step 3: Go to %windir%\System32\Tasks\Microsoft\Windows\SystemRestore
    In that directory, rename SR to SR.sav
    Try to create the manual restore point again.

    Best regards,
    Della Li
