Restauration point

Varouj

Hi

I am trying to create a restauration point.
When I open the "protection" window of the "system"
(sorry but my windows 7 64 is in French) I get a pop up saying :
translation : The property page contains an unexpected error
irremediable failure (0x8000FFF)
close the property page and try again.

Unfortunatly I have tried again but it does not work.
How do I create a restauration point.

TIA for your answers.

Control Panel > System > on left System Protection > on that page you
can set drives, how much space you want to use ( from what problems if I
have read correctly it should be 20 gigs ) and create a restore point.

Unfortunatly, all the spaces on that window are greyed out and I cannot
choose a disk. Only Recovery is activated the other hard disks are
shown as deactivated but I cannot choose any of them.

Some time ago I had put off automatic restauration by Windows but I
can't remember from where I did it. How do I put it on again ?

S'il vous plaît excuser cette traduction de Google. Je ne sais pas
comment il est bon.

Cliquez sur le bouton de démarrage. Type: restaurer dans la boîte de
recherche. Cliquez sur Restauration du système. Vous devriez voir un
message disant que la restauration du système est éteint. Cliquez:
Tournez restauration du système sous ou hors tension - pour trouver des
instructions pour la protection du système et restauration du système


(Please excuse this Google translation. I don't know how good it is.

Click on the start button. Type : restore in the search box. Click on
System Restore. You should see a message saying system restore is turned
off. Click: Turn System restore on or off - to find instructions for
system protection and system restore)

I can't translate to the French, but here's what I found in English.

Control Panel -- System -- System Protection

The System Properties window appears with the System Protection tab
selected - if it isn't selected, select it.

Lower down in that pane select your C: drive and click the Configure
button.

There are three radio buttons at the top. Chose the first, "Restore
system settings and previous versions of files".

Do *not* select "Turn off system protection".

It seems that I am not making myself very clear.
When I select the system protection tab there is an error message as
described above and all the buttons are greyed : that is I cannot press
any tab : I cannot select the disk and I cannot select "create".

Some time ago, I did turn off system protection, now I am trying to
turn it on again !!!! And I am getting this 0x800FFF error .
Is there a way out of this ?
I do not want to restore to a previous state, I want to create a
restore point.

You *were* clear, in fact.

But since I wasn't 100% sure about what you were actually seeing, I
posted the above, hoping it would help.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough to come up with any new ideas.

All that is left is to say "bonne chance" :-(

BTW, your English is far better than my French.

Look at this web site. It describes your problem. You probably did a
registry hack.

Take a look at this :

If you open it in Google chrome your will find the option to translate
the page or you can translate it here: http://translate.google.com/

The suggestion is to run: 'sfc /scannow' in an administrator CMD box
(run as administrator)
This checks for corrupt system files and might be able to fix those found.

The other suggestion is to create a new user account, copying your user
files over, as your current account might be corrupt.

Forget about System Restore. It's crap anyway. Use Macrium Reflect Free
to create an image of your drive.

Thank you Ken for your information.
I tried both methods but nothing has changed. I still receive the same
error message.
While trying all possibilities, I tried also "scannow"
and almost nothing happens : I see the black window open for a second
and then nothing ?
Is this normal ?

Thank you for the info. I'll try it. But I wanted to do a quick restore
point just because I downloaded a driver and in case something goes
wrong I wanted to be able to go back to the previous state.
Using a whole disk backup seems too much work !

Macrium Reflect takes about ten to fifteen minutes, depending on how
much used space you've got.

Anyway, System Restore is a piece of crap. If you restore to a certain
restoration point some files and (empty) folders will be left behind. Is
that what you want? If you use an image things will be exactly the same.
No junk files/folders.

You have to run sfc/ scannow from a command prompt with admin. rights.

I agree that Macrium Reflect is the bomb, but how's it going to help the OP?
He's just going to make an image of a system that already has a problem.
Kinda shutting the barn door after the horse gets out.
