Cannot complete System Restore, an unspecified error occured. What can I do?


  • When i want to use System Restore i receive following message:

    "System Restore did not complete succesfully. Your computer's system files
    and settings were not changed.
    An unspecified error occured during System Restore."

    Can anyone help me?

  • The error message is too general to tell the cause. Try the system recovery forums on, people there have more experience on this problem and may give you ways to do some more diagnosis.

    This forum is for helping software writers to improve their software's compatibility so it is unlikely those recovery experts would come here.
