    You could try selecting a different restore point to see if it may be successful with it.

    Otherwise, I'm not sure what else to do other than to do a factory recovery since doing a Refresh fails as well.

    Ok. If I do a factory recovery, will there be a way to backup anything before proceeding?

    I was not successful in doing anything else.

    Here is the last message I got....

    It may give you an option to backup your files during the factory recovery, but I would also see if you may be able to use a Peppermint live USB/DVD to back up your files to another location to be safe.
