Recently I found System Restore not working. It would neither restore to an earlier time nor create a new restore point. I tried doing a virus scan using Avast, rebooting, checking that it was(supposed to be) running and safe mode.
Disconnecting from the Internet and turning off antivirus and firewall also made no difference.
I also turned it off and on again. I noticed that initially it said it was monitoring drives C, D & E but after turning on again it only showed drives C & D. These drives are all partitions on my HD.
On checking E I found that it had no file system and was advised to format it. On attempting this I got “Format did not complete successfully”.
I also attempted to Defrag and got “Disk Defragmenter could not start.”
Does anyone know what is going on and how to correct it?
