For years (really), I've been getting this attached screenshot) message when I try to create a restore point (Windows 7). I have PLENTY of space. Because of this error, I haven't been able to make a restore point for years.
I've tried deleting all old restore points (there were 2 from 2011...exactly), and have ensured that Windows Backup and Volume Shadow Copy are turned on (Started in Processes/Services) and in Automatic. Even did a restart on those 2 services. Still no luck. I feel like I've tried a few other things from all my googling, but still getting that error and can't make a restore point.
Thanks for helping me out. None of my independent research (hours every few months) is getting me anywhere. Thanks.
PS I've already tried the few items on 2 other articles including "System Restore is not creating restore points" article, thanks.
I think the person who ends up having the actual solution (not just identify the problem) will be a true genius.
