HI,

I was looking at event viewer and noticed 12 'Warnings' related to System Restore. The first one dates from last september. I am not sure if its anything to worry about or if it means that System restore is not working properly?

 

This is the most recent Warning:

Any insight would be appreciated. :)

I suggest you stay out of event viewer and don't worry about it.

The Event Viewer can be really confusing, there are a lot of warnings, errors, and informational messages.  Without knowing what it all means, you can incorrectly assume that your computer is broken or infected when there’s nothing really wrong.

 

There are scammers out there that will access your computer with your permission and will quote event errors from the event viewer to convince you that the computer is infected or in need of repair and charge you to resolve these problems.

The events themselves are what you want to see, but the usefulness of these events can range from being very specific and obvious things that you can fix easily to the very vague messages that don’t make any sense and you can’t find any information on Google.

There is information out there which will help you understand what you are seeing, but actually learning how to interpret this information will take at long time.  I agree with Allen, you would be best served in this by just leaving it alone.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You can try to add a Registry Key Value

1. Press Windows Key +X then type regedit and hit Enter.
2. Follow the path
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\SystemCertificates.
3. On the right side of the pane, right click on the blank space and choose DWORD Value when the New option occurs.
4. Change the name to CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo.
5. Then double click to modify it. Change the Value data to 1 and press OK to save the change.
6. Exit Registry and restart your computer after the change.

Thanks for all the replies. :)

 

I think I am just a bit of a worrier so I will just stay out of Event Viewer.

 

I was browsing it because I saw a Command Prompt window momentarily flash up on boot (probably something to do with Windows update maybe?) and then I got a bit lost and side tracked looking at the events.

 

I have Acronis and backup all my data to an external drive so I probably don't really need to worry too much about System Restore working. The version of Acronis I have is now a good few years old so I will look into Macrium as a possible alternative.

 

Thanks again all :)

Acronis True Image is the best of class. Macrium Reflect is free and a good alternative, but I prefer Acronis.
