    I am having troubles with Outlook 2010 downloading duplicate emails so I tried restoring my computer to am earlier date but it won't restore giving me the following error "An unspecified error occurred during system restore (0x80070005).

    I checked the System Properties under System Protection and the OS (C) (System) is On however the Recovery Folder is Off. Does this need to be On?

    Thanks in advance

    Kind regards - HaloTop

    Hello again, I replied to your post about duplicate emails.

    System Restore often doesn’t work. Probably not anything you did. I’d run a malware check.

    It’s normal for System Restore to not monitor the Recovery partition. There’s no need because I’m pretty sure it’s Write Protected so changes can’t be made to it.

    FWIW, one thing I've been fairly lucky with is to boot into Safe Mode, start the System Restore and when it reboots, go back into Safe Mode. If it worked you're good to go. Now boot Windows as you normally would.
