    Windows failed to do a system restore

    Hi, i was trying to do a system restore because i have Bluestacks here but it's not opening anymore. As i think this is because of a recent driver install i decided to use system restore but it always fails. Right now i've tried to do it again but it says there was a system restore failure when scanning files system on C:\ and that it was corrupted. They even told me to run scandisk. If it helps, the system restore error code is: 0x81000204. Don't know if i need more logs. I only have this log from sfc /scannow command.

    Did you try to run System Restore in Safe Mode? That often works when it fails in normal mode.

    Yes, but couldn't find where to do System Restore in Safe Mode.

    It should be in the same place. (In your language - Portugese?)

    Click Start
    In Box type Restore
    Click System Restore
    Click Next

    Should work

    Yes. But it's not in the same place. That image is from where system restore should be but it's not in there...

    MS answers: System Protection tab Missing in Safe Boot (click)

    Petrula: the fact that in Safe mode, the System Properties dialog is missing the System Protection tab is a bug which you need to report to the software development staff.

    Deepika Gowda: this is by design you will not found System Protection tab in Safe mode. Users are not recommended to perform System Restore from Safe mode as it will remove the earlier restore points

    Actually, it works fine in Windows 7. I am unfamiliar with Win 8 & 10. I know because I recently did a Restore Win 7 64 Pro in Safe Mode and it did not remove my prior Restore points. Here OP must be using Win 8 and the info above is for 10. Just another case where things work much differently in various windows versions.

    However, the link above shows you exactly how to access Restore point in Windows 10. Not sure in 8.
