Error code 0x800700B7 with System Restore and Backup problems

Q: Error code 0x800700B7 with System Restore and Backup problems

My OS is Vista Ultimate. 2GB RAM. 13GB free space on C Drive. I am unable to use System Restore or Backup and Restore center. When I try to create a Restore Point (or do a backup) error message comes up 'Could not create the scheduled task for the following reason: Cannot create a file when that file already exists. (0x800700B7).' I think (not sure) that these problems came after I was infected with win32:Vitro virus. (No longer any infections showing). I think that my registry may be corrupt or files deleted. Can anyone help please?

Preferred Solution: Error code 0x800700B7 with System Restore and Backup problems

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
 
Thank you for your post.
 
Based on my research, I would like to suggest the following:
 
Note: Please perform a complete system backup first. If any unexpected issue occurs, we can quickly restore the system to the current status.
 
1.     Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
 
2.     In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache
 
3.     Right click on this key and select "Export" and save the key to a Flash Drive or other removable storage device.
 
4.     Remove the key ?HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows?
 
5.     Please reboot the computer and check if the issue reoccurs. If it works, please also reconfigure the Scheduled Task for System restore in Task Scheduler.
 
Hope this helps. Thanks.Nicholas Li - MSFT

I'm trying to do my normal system image and data backups with Windows Backup and Restore, always worked fine until now. I am getting "The backup application could not start due to an internal error: Server execution failed (0x80080005).

Hmmm... This is apparently an old and well-known problem. If you navigate your file structure like so:

And then delete the SR (system recovery) task, you apparently have 50-50 odds that your error code will disappear. But if you do this, you'll have to (re)define your normal backup task definition.
Please let us know how this turns out.

A:Fix for System Restore error (0x800700B7) for Setting Manual Restore Point

Hi,
 
Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.
 
Based on my experience, error code 0x800700B7 indicates that the object cannot be created because an object with the same name already exists. Thus I suspect there is some shadow restore points stored on your computer. I recommend that you perform the following steps.
1. Change another location to save the new created restore point.
2. Resize Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space by running the following command, there may be caused by limited space.
 
1) Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt.
2) Click Run as administrator.
3) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
 
vssadmin list shadowstorage /for=c:
 
4) Note the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space value.
5) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
 
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /on=c: /maxsize=300Mb
 
6) Close the Command Prompt window.
 
Hope this helps. Thanks.

Hello all, Ryan here, had a question,

I have a Toshiba u505-s2975 64bit, I don't really do anything on it but surf the web and play Wow and use office. I turned my laptop off last night and this morning went to start it and it wouldn't start. It just was going to startup repair and not letting it restart. I then tried to restore to a previous time and then I got the error code 0x800700b7.

After that I started the laptop in Safe mode with networking and tried to restore to a previous time and it worked. However when it restarted in normal mode it was so slow it wouldn't bring up my Icons only my start bar at the bottom, but I couldn't do anything still.

So I tried to start in Safe mode with networking again, and it will try then fail and send me to the startup repair screen and that is where I am stuck. and I've tried to do the process again and it is just a horrible cycle.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I'm having a problem trying to restore Win 8.1 after a crash. All I get is a blue screen with an error code.

I finally deduced that I was having a hardware problem with my beloved SSD (weird glitches and erratic behavior, occasional recognition errors in BIOS, and finally I/O errors when trying to restore from backup), so I pulled it out, and temporarily replaced it with a spare HDD of slightly larger size. The backup/restore program I use is Paragon, and it has worked flawlessly for me for some time, including when I migrated Win 8.0 to that SSD over a year ago. So I pulled up the last full-disk backup (from 4 weeks ago) and did a Restore to the replacement HDD, but the resulting installation will not boot. I've tried it several times, including using a different archive, and each time I get a blue screen saying "Your PC needs to be repaired", with an error code 0xc0000034.

What is this error code, and how do I go about fixing the problem? Is there some kind of issue with restoring an SSD backup to an HDD? (I know there is something about the partition alignment which may be different, for instance.) This program worked just fine in the opposite direction, meaning restoring a backup of an HDD to the SSD.

I might have been able to use the recovery media to fix the problem, if I had the current media... unfortunately, the disk I created was from prior to the 8.1 upgrade, and it won't work anymore. My mistake. But short of a clean install back to 8.0, an... Read more

A:Win 8 will not restore from backup, error code 34 at boot

I just finished an all day close encounter with my system because of the PC needs to restart message with the big smiley face. I was not able to get the error message because it was so fast.

But what I discovered was after the computer reboots the second time, it will go into a Repairing your computer and then Diagnosing your computer. After that, a Repair menu is presented and one of the options was the Advanced options, followed by Troubleshoot, followed by another Advanced Options. In this option, I found a Startup Settings option which would allow for a Safe Mode boot. So I hit restart and selected Safe Mode from the list. From there, I started msconfig.exe and selected Diagnostic Startup, and restarted.

The system booted into normal Windows, so I started msconfig.exe again and selected normal boot, and the system was working again.

I do not know exactly what caused the original problem, probably something I did while testing something... But now the system is operating normally again. I never found anything that was responsible for the problem, although the Event Viewer did have over 70 DCOM ShellHWDetection Event 1005 error messages.

For the last few days, the system BackUp on my external hard drive is getting failed with error code 0x80070570 after completing nearly 95%. The backup consists of system images and other folders that windows automatically choose. Even when trying to run backup without the system images, the backup fails. As per my findings, the 'AppData folder' in additional locations is creating the problem as removing it from backup settings does solve the problem. But this problem didn't exist a few days ago and while letting windows choose what to backup, brings back the problem. How to fix it?

Hi there,

My windows 8 pro install messed up n i have almost 2.8tb of stuff on my drive on a 3tb hd. I have an identical hd as a backup which i have (an apparently successful) a backup of my system from a couple of weeks ago on. I had set the system to do scheduled backups of the system (set to backup a system image of efi partition and c. There were a few times where i was trying to get other things done and the systemwas running slow so i cancelled the backups when i noticed them running. The software stopped the backups (seemingly successfully).

As i say my system messed up - i came home to find out it was no longer downloading (as i had left it doing when i went to work) but was on a blue screen (bsod?) saying the system needs to be restarted. Since then it didnt work well at all and after dskchk reported that several sectors were damaged so it was moving data to spare sectors (or whatever it generally reports when this happens) there were a lot of files messed up or reported as deleted when doing a file recovery scan with recuvva.

So i decided to restore the backed up system image from the other hd. Incidentally i tried mounting the vhdx backup image from that hd via windows explorer which then reported "the disk needs formatting" and didnt get any success mounting via disk management either (it mounted in the app but didnt show up on windows explorer and if i tried to access info on it via disk management it reported the same"disk needs formatting prom...

You could try mounting it with something else.

Not sure if partition guru free will do it. The paid version handles vhd.

Once mounted, partition guru can make it's own image of the mounted drive., which can be restored.

You might need the paid version for that - worth looking at the freebie in case it does.

The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
Shadow copying the specified volume is not supported. (0x8004230C)
please try again.

There's no previous restore points created. So basically my System Restore can not be turned on and has been off all along. When either attempting to turn on or create a restore point I get the above message. I dissable my Norton 360 and Windows One Live Care to see if that was the cause of the problem and nothing happened. I also went to Services and was only able to find Volume Shadow Copying, which is was turned on.

The backup target is the D: drive of one of a pair of 2008 R2 Foundation servers (either one). Once I've selected the target server and drive from the "Select a Network Location" dialogue, and entered appropriate credentials there, back on the "Where do you want to save the backup?" dialogue, when I click the "Next" button, I just get a message box "An error has occurred: The parameter is incorrect.

I've come across many threads on this and other forums with similar problems, but none of the suggestions I found (like setting the locale to use '.' as the decimal place, increasing the virtual memory to a preposterous size, or running CHKDSK) have helped.

A:Windows System Image Backup Fails to Start (error code 0x80070057)

OK, folks, riddle me this if you can:

I fixed this problem as a by-product of fixing another one, apparently unrelated, which was that I couldn't access the workstation's DVD drive - I just kept getting the dreaded "Access is denied" mantra. In my searching, I came across a suggestion to uninstall the drive and reinstall it. Seems kinda extreme, but it would certainly initialise its security settings.

Well I did it, and sure enough I now have full access to the drive, but then when I opened the Backup toolbox to create a new system repair disk, I found the backup to my system servers is now working, along with correctly identifying the DVD drive and an external USB HDD I have connected as usable backup devices (which it didn't before).

It makes about as much sense to me as getting your TV to work by turning the kitchen tap on, but there you go - that's Windows for you.

I have seen solutions to this error when it occurs during creation of a System Image, but I receive it when running a restore of a system image.  Here are the parameters of the problem:
System: Getac rugged laptop with SSD fitted in place of an HDD.  It was running Windows 7 with SP1 before the failed restore.
The System boots using Windows repair disk, but the OS has been trashed by failed restore, so normal boot brings up a missing OS error.
The System image is held on 3 DVDs.
Invoking System restore prompts for DVD #3 to identify the restorable images.
Selecting image for restore prompts for DVD #1.
Approx. 20 mins and 20% into restore, the error message 'Windows backup error accessing remote shared folder 0x8078015B' displays and the restore bombs out.
This process is 100% repeatable and is not dependent on whether the 'reformat and repartition' check box is checked or clear.
There is only one image on the DVD set from which to select the image to restore.
As the BIOS had been updated to lock down (disable) Bluetooth and WiFi for use in a secure environment, the BIOS has been returned to factory defaults in case this was the cause of the problem.

This problem first came to light a year ago when I downloaded a windows update that was corrupt.
It forced the computer to loop the autocheck upon boot and could only be started in safe mode or by canelling the check.
After looking through the forums I found an interim fix which disabled the autocheck and since have always recieved the message upon restarting "Autocheck program not found".
I naturally thought this issue would be resovled in the next update and or a future fix.
I had to go away for work at the start of this year and when I got back and windows updated it still had the autocheck message.

My questions are on Windows 7 System Restore, Restore Points and Backups; specifically, potentially using a Backup as a Permanent Restore Point.

Here is the situation...

About a month ago, I did a complete Factory Restore on my HP desktop and returned it to it's factory condition. After removing the bloatware and performing all the necessary Windows Updates, the Factory Restore process went off without any issues.

Today, however, I needed to use System Restore due to an issue I was having with multiple monitors that I just couldn't figure out. So, I went into System Restore and found a "Date andTime" of a restore point that was right around the same time I did the Factory Restore. That Restore Point was also the oldest and since I knew it was a known & good restore point, I decided to use it. That restore point "Description" was labeled "System Image Restore Point" and the "Type" was labeled "Backup." (See Image)



I don't recall setting up or doing any backups although, between Windows Backup, Norton Backup and HP's Backup utilities some type of backup obviously happened. FYI, I hate having all those options, as I'd rather use native Windows tools. In any case, today, I used the System Restore using the System Image Restore Point labeled as Backup and, after performing a few minor Windows Updates, everything went off without a hitch and my monitor problem was solved.

OK, so a couple of days ago, my HP desktop crashed and then went through the whole System Recovery loop(I couldn't login to Safe mode, wouldn't let me past the System Recovery Screen). Well I backed up the entire C drive using Backup your files in the menu. Then it shows you all the file types it will back up; i.e photos, videos, e-mails and bookmarks. So I did that to an external hard drive and it comes out to 143GB.

Then I did a factory restore to my desktop.

Now comes my problem. I've been able to copy everything from the external hard drive using RecoveryMgr.exe which opens the WIM files and saves them to my C: hard drive under System Recovery Files. However it does not seem to work when it comes to putting in my old Thunderbird e-mails, contacts and such or in Firefox to restore my bookmarks, saved passwords. Any help would be most appreciative. Thank you

A:System Backup & Restore will not restore bookmarks or e-mails

A default Firefox installation has all configuration info including bookmarks in C:\Users\your user name\appdata\roaming\ in a folder called Mozilla.

A default Thunderbird installation has all configuration info including email in C:\Users\your user name\appdata\roaming\ in a folder called Thunderbird.

If those folders got backed up, you should be able to drill down to them and restore.

I assume you used Windows Backup to do the back up. I have no idea if it will include those folders.

If those folders from your original installation still survive, you can restore by copying them to the same location on new Thunderbird/Firefox installations, over-writing the new folders created when you reinstall Thunderbird/Firefox.

It's a good practice to back up the Mozilla and Thunderbird folders periodically as a matter of course--just as you would any other data.

Hi convert,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Here's an article on the restore procedure: Restore Backup Files

Just to make sure you're doing it right. It's a selective restore of a full or selective backup (not a complete restore of a complete backup) - but since you did a full backup it matches your process closer than a complete restore would.

I also found the following (but don't know if it's true or not):

1. After starting "Backup and Restore Center"
2. I selected "Advanced Restore"
3. I wasn't asked for an Administrator password....maybe because my account is an administrator account.
4. Selected "Files from a backup made on a different computer"
5. In the Dialog stating "Select the location of the backup to restore", select "Hard disk, CD or DVD......"
6. Under the drop-down box, select your drive/partition and continue
7. If there are any backups on your drive, it will show a list of them.
8. In my case, it did show a backup but in backup location, it will show "Backup location is not available."

If I create a system image and then periodically create full backups of all drives would I be able to recover the system to the last backup? I am thinking I could recover from the system image and then recover using the backup.

A:Fully restore system using Backup & Restore

Yes. Also use the previous versions feature at any time to restore a file several versions back. This works even without setting up windows backup, as restore points also create backups of your files. But windows backup will offer even more on days the backup is created. I have mine set like this:

2 internal hard drives, one is main, other is backup. Windows backup runs to it every 2 weeks and does a system image and backs up all my files. An external hard drive works well too, but then is hard to have on a schedule since you need to remember to plug it in.

I still recommend having a backup external hard drive as well, with your users folder dragged onto it just in case.

Just like time machine on apple. Of course microsoft removed this feature in windows 8, because they like to screw up good things.

Greetings all! I thought I would post this here and see if anyone had any ideas before I am reduced to wiping my drive and starting with a fresh install of Vista.

The problem is this. I am trying to install a Virtual CD program that is, according to their site, Vista compatible. However, the installer quits before all the files have been uncompressed with the error -5006 : 0x800700b7. Ok, so maybe their installer got corrupted and won't work. I tried another Virtual CD program that I had demo'd earlier and then uninstalled. Though the installer ran fine before this time it won't install with numerous errors about being unable to open CAB files.

So later in the day I try and install a game (Clive Barker's Jericho) and get the exact same error (-5006 : 0x800700b7) . I look up the error on the net and the results are, in the majority, that my registry is corrupted and to use some program like RegCure (which I've done without any positive effect.)

Any ideas?

Here are my specs:
Windows Vista 32bit, with all updates current from the date of this post.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+
3322 MB RAM (as logged by dxdiag)
MSI K9A2 Platinum Motherboard ver 1.0
Default System BIOS
NVidia GeForce 7900 GTX
Soundblaster X-Fi Extreme Gamer Fatal1ty Pro

I'm happy to offer any more information if needed.

Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Error -5006 : 0x800700b7

Well, I solved it.

I don't know if all the steps I took were necessary, but here is what I did:

1. Turned off Vista's User Account Control.
2. Booted vista with a clean boot using msconfig.
3. Right-clicked the DVD's installer program and selected 'Run As Administrator.'

From what I've read on Vista forums is that 0x800700b7 is an error about a file already existing or a program not having permission to write a file in a certain place. So, I figured if I essentially turned off all Vista's security measures the program could write its files. While I am sure this explanation is not entirely correct it at least led to me to solving the problem.

Hi,

I'll set up my BSOD problems. I run Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Last night my desktop started, without any seeming cause, to slow down and not respond. I tried rebooting and my Windows wouldn't finish loading-- many of the desktop and taskbar icons appeared as blank pages; clicking anything or trying to run a program failed, until eventually Windows crashed altogether. Attempted restarts have failed; I can run my desktop in Safe Mode (what I am doing now) but that's it.

I attempted System Restores to my two most recent points and they both failed. I attempted to restore from two points previous to that and the restore failed due to error 0x800700b7

Since my computer won't restart or run at all, I tried to boot from a Windows 7 CD and proceed from there. The system restore tools there were unsuccessful, and attempting to proceed further with a new install returned a BSOD that suggested my hard drive may be the problem and, among other things, I should run CHKDSK /F if nothing else works.

I received this message on the BSOD:

I've run the Seven Forums BSOD software and attached the results here.

If I install a fresh copy of Win 7 on a PC with a different hardware configuration, can I restore the last system backup from my old PC, bearing in mind that different motherboards are involved? I want to avoid reinstalling loads of application software.

A:Restore from system backup on old PC

Possibly, but more likely, not. The backup will include driver information from the original motherboard -- and if those devices are quite different for the new motherboard, Win7 might not even boot.

Most folks will recommend a fresh install on the new motherboard -- and that is generally, the best course of action.

IF you don't want to follow that route, LapLink makes a product known as PC Mover -- which will "migrate" your Win7 OS setup from the old machine to the new one. I have used it, and it actually works. Saves having to reinstall all the apps from scratch, and redo all the Windows updates to make Win7 current.

If the answer is yes, then follow this:

1. Open the start menu
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. Right click on command prompt and select run as administrator
4. In command prompt, type:

sfc /scannow

Let it run, it should take about 10-15 minutes. This will check the integrity of your system files and will attempt to replace or repair corrupted or missing files.

Repeat this process 3 times (sometimes it isn't fixed on the first time), and if it is still detecting problems ("Integrity Violations"), then let me know and we will try something else.


If the answer is no, then let me know what the problem is in more detail.

I have an HP Notebook 15-ba020nr that I purchased 8/2016.  Windows 10 OS.  I ran into a problem doing a System Restore and Technical Support walked me through a number of things but in the end I was told I needed to do a System Recovery.  I am doing that now.   I asked Technical support if After doing the System Recovery, if i could restore a System Image Backup that I have on an external HD (USB) that I created in September.  I created the System Image from: Control Panel > System and Security > Backup and Restore (Windows 7) > Create a System Image.  They said "no" I could not do that.  I really would like to be able to do that because I do not want to manually reinstall all my software (I mean the software I purchased later--not the pre-instaled software).  I thought the System Image  backup was just for this purpose. So, I am asking if I can restore a System Image Backup after I do a System Recovery?  If not, an explanation would be nice.  Thank you in advance. Susie
