System Restore Checkpoint Creation / Restore Problem

Hi,
I have windows 8 Pro With Media Center installed on my laptop (Vostro 1015 320 GB HDD & 4 GB RAM). I just have the OS, MS office 2K13, foxit reader, KIS 2K14 and Paragon Partition Master installed (which I do not use at all). Since two days ago System Restore Checkpoint Creation / Restore is not working. The error message says that I do not have sufficient privilege for the operation to succeed. Although my machine is working, I need this to work as i have all my personal data on it. A backup is there but can this issue be resolved without a fresh install since volume of data is quite big and important ? Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks... :)

Are you saying your Restore Points are your only form of Backup for all your data?

System Restore Checkpoint Creation / Restore Problem

Hi
That is not at all. This problem has also cropped up on my PC which I use for remote connections to my clients and doing maintenance work, Also I have a lot of important documents on this. I am a Sys Admin and hence from time to time do need to install new S/W or test out different virtual scenarios on behalf of my client. So if anything happens SysRestore is the fastest way to get back to a working environment again. This PC is running Windows 8 with 16GB RAM, 2TB HDDs (2 nos.) and has INTEL i5 on a genuine INTEL board. The H/W is not an issue and I had not installed S/W or changed config when the problem arose. I am totally stumped as I have not faced this before. External System Backup is there but restoration is time consuming and hence my query. Thanks for replying, gator2013....:)

Accessing the Built-In Administrator Account might help in your situation per the link provided in the reply above.

Since you are still running W-8 I wonder if your system is in the middle of some sort of forced install of W-8.1? This has caused problems for other W-8 users. Have you been installing Windows Updates on a regular basis? Have you tried any diagnostics like SFC /Scannow to check for file corruption?

In the past System Restore Points failed to work for me.
Now I use Macrium Reflect images on usb drives to restore with.
Do as you wish.
Just adding my 2¢ worth. :)
