When I try to create a restore point on laptop, I get error.....

Shadow copy provider has an unexpected error while trying to process the specified operation (0x8004230F) please try again.

I have virgin backup and storage running on the laptop can this be the problem?

No 2 if you have a cloned drive in your machine

Fruit Bat /\0/\ I get "You do not have enough privileges to run, run from elevated window"

Fruit Bat /\0/\ Sorry i got it, had to run as administrator. I did that but the only provider name there is Microsoft shadow copy provider 1.0. How do I proceed from here any ideas ?

Fruit Bat /\0/\ Resolution number two also looks a bit to complicated for my limited PC skills.

HAve you put a bigger drive in your machine?

TRy removing all usb devices before trying to create a restore point.

To get System Restore to Work, you need to Turn it off, This will lose all Restore points. Then turn it back on and creare a New Point

Thanks Have I put a bigger drive in your machine No I have not.

Only USB devices is mouse,removed it but that did not help.

woodchip I tried that also, no luck

This and another problem (Cannot create system restore), which I also posted on here, arose after running Tune up Utilities 2011 software I accepted lots of suggestions from it to clean and speed up my PC, maybe a coincidence but Im now afraid to use it again.

I did a clean install of windows yesterday and now PC is doing all it should, have created a restore point no problem.

SFC /SCANNOW a space before the forward slash /
