My one Restore Point has been deleted and I am not able to create a new Restore Point. I have a couple of Restore Point creators (including Restore Point Creator) in addition to the Windows own creation function, none of which now work (all of a sudden). They generate reports such as 'the system will not give permission for this'. I sign in as Administrator.

 

What do I have to do to restore Restore Point creation for my  Windows10 machine?

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.  If it does find corruptions that it cannot repair, I would suggest zipping up and posting the CBS.log (from C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log ) so that other experts can help with that (I can't read the CBS logs myself).

I have tried the DISM commands and SFC but both report that there is no corruption, yet still Restore Points cannot be created.

Here's some repair/recovery/restore options (in this order)  Start with Step 4 as you've already run DISM/SFC:

1 - Startup Repair.  Run it 3 times, rebooting in between tries.

2 - System Restore to a point before this started happening.

3 - DISM/SFC repair (DISM doesn't work with W7, although SFC does)  - doesn't work if you're not able to boot to Windows (let me know and I'll post a way to do it from Startup Repair)
    

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after typing it:
   
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

    From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

    You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption. Include the CBS log (located at C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) if you'd like to have a Windows Update expert check it (I don't check them because I can't read them)


4 - RESET using the "Keep My Files" option (W8 calls this a REFRESH; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

5 - Repair install of the OS (Thanks to FreeBooter!):

6 - RESET using the "Remove Everything" option (W8 calls this a RESET; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

If using W7 or earlier, this can be accomplished by resetting the system by use of the recovery partition/recovery disks/recovery drive.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )

7 - Wipe and reinstall from the Recovery Partition (if so equipped)

8 - Wipe and reinstall from Recovery Media - to include deleting all partitions.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )

Hello ---------- thanks for all the information, however events have overtaken this. A few hours after successfully updating to Anniversary my PC suffered repeated BSOD and inability to launch. It refused my password so Safe Mode could not be entered. My local tech found that my SSD had failed and could not be repaired without returning to China. The machine is a few months out of warranty. So I have ordered a replacement, similar but somewhat upgraded eg. 64 GB instead of 32 GB. It will be some weeks before it is delivered. I presume one of the first of many things to do is to install updates, including Anniversary.

Meanwhile I managing to make use of an Android tablet.

PS I should have said that the technician advised me that the Anniversary update and the SSD failure were coincidental.

I am running Windows 10 over a month.

About the anniversary update..yes almost every user had problems with it

About the system restore.Me too..I can't use system restore from the time I installed Windows 10.Bu I didn't mind because I do not need it so I left it unusable.

But there is one thing......

I also saw that you have SSD like me and this made me thought that maybe System Restore was disabled from the operating system when the ssd drive was detected in order to keep good performance,protect and maintaine the SSD because all we know that where it comes to drive writing operations the SSD is a problem :)

Like the disable of superfetch and prefecth when windows detect an SSD.In mine prefetch and superfetch weren't disabled but I have heard that sometimes windows does this thing when SSD is detected to reduce the write operations on SSD.

What is your opinion guys ?

Despite the coincidence of the SSD and Anniversary Update.

Be sure to make a backup image of the hard drive when you first start.

And set System Restore points regularly (different from a system image).

That way, should the system "bork" on you, you'll have good backup positions to retreat to (if needed).

Good luck!
