    Default System Restore: Error detected in the Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS)

    System Restore's not working. I cannot manually set a restore point. Also, I cannot restore my system to a previous day and time.

    When I tried to select a restore point, this error message appeared:

    Restore point could not be created for this reaso: Error detected in the Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS). A problem occurred while trying to contact VSS writers. Verify that the Event System service and the VSS service are running & check for associated errors in the Event logs. (0x80042318)



    I need help getting System Restore up and running again and will appreciate all help.

    Duchess.

    Run sfc /scannow in elevated command prompt. Maybe the system file checker can fix it.

    Type Services.msc in Start Menu Search Box, hit Enter. Make sure that the Volume Shadow Copy, Event System & Task Scheduler Services are Running and set on Automatic. If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, Start it. Also set it on Automatic if it is not. A reboot may be required.

    If you need more help. see if Fix: System Restore not working in Windows 7 and Vista | WinVistaClub helps you.

    If it doesn't work... TRY THIS:

    Run Command Prompt as Administrator and execute the following command:

    net stop winmgmt

    (choose Y when needed, it will stop WMI service)

    winmgmt /resetrepository

    (reset wbem repository)

    net start winmgmt

    (starts WMI service again)

    Finally restart your PC and try to create system checkpoint manually.
