:(I have a new win8 hp pavilion all in one desktop computer and since a windows refresh, a month ago, it has stopped creating restore points and it fails to manually create a restore point also. It leaves a message "THE RESTORE POINT COULD NOT BE CREATED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON: ACCESS IS DENIED. (0x80070005)". I have allotted 15% or 66.67 GB for this feature in the "configure" option. The C: drive is the only drive marked as "ON" to be restored. The only restore point listed is for a WinZip 17 installation on the day of the windows refresh, which was as I said before, a month ago. The are no other restore points at all and can't create one.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am also having this same problem. I was able to create restore points on windows 7 just fine, but since I upgraded to windows 8 I can no longer create restore points. I get the same error message as the original poster. I have updated the permissions on the SVI to allow me all priviledges, but I can still not create a restore point.

solved system restore is not making restore points

:) To start System Restore, open the Control Panel, then click on the heading "System and Security", then click on the heading "Administrative Tools", then scroll to the entry titled "Services" and double click on that. Next scroll to the entry titled "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" and right click on that, select "properties" from the menu. In the "Properties" box that opens set "startup type" to 'automatic', and under "Services Status" click on the 'Start' button.
Click on the "Apply" button and then "OK".

This solved my problems with System Restore and no system restore points. I found this fix online.
