    Windows 8 Reliability History is not collecting data.


    On a Windows 8 notebook computer, the Reliability History hasn't updated since 2/19/2013 at 5:00pm. That's nearly one month ago.

    I have checked the RacTask properties in the Task Scheduler and they are the same as on the desktop system, where Reliability History is working as expected. By "the same", specifically I mean that all 4 triggers are enabled and values in the other scheduler tabs have equivalent settings.

    Using RegEdit, I have confirmed that HKLM\Software\Microsft\Reliability Analysis\WMI has WMIEnable set to 1.

    What am I missing?

    Hello techbyter, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if resetting your Reliability Monitor may help. It may take a day or so afterwards before it starts reporting again.

    Thanks, Shawn. I've performed the reset and the history is now blank. I'll see if new values start being populated over the next few days and let you know.
