    Default System Restore isn't functioning - Error 0x80070570

    I have tried to do a system restore to a point previously in order to help with another problem, but get the message:

    Can't system restore, file or directory is corrupted and unreadable (0x80070570)

    This applies to all restore points available.



    Can anyone please advise what can be done?

    This error code 0x80070570 appears when your files are missing or corrupted. It can occur during an OS installation or upgrade, copy or move operation, during Windows Update or even a system restore - as is in your case.

    Some things which come to my mind:

    Run ChkDsk.

    Run System File Checker - sfc /scannow

    Delete all system restore points, disable your antivirus and see if you can create a system restore point. If you can - then see if you can restore back to it.

    Hope something helps!

    I had already run ChkDsk and sfc /scannow HappyAndyK; I then did as you suggested and it has restored back to the point I created. Magic!

    So thanks very much for the suggestion. Does this now mean that that particular problem can be closed?

    Yes - If it does recur, please let us know.
