Q: Win 10 System Restore Fail 0x80070091

Below about says it all.  I tried SysRes from two points, both with same failure.  

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and
settings were not changed.

Details:
System Restore failed while restoring the directory from the restore point.
Source: AppxStaging
Destination: %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070091)

The two attempts were from: choose a different restore point>show more restore points type Backup.  I really need this function to work.  Any solutions out there?

Thank you,

Terry


Answer

A:

Renaming folder WindowsApps, reboot the system and try a system restore should cure the issue.

I've described a solution here Windows 10 Version 1607: System restore error 0x80070091 [Fix]

Addendum: It seems that the issue has been fixed in Windows 10 Creators Update. And there is a batch file to fix the issue. Further details may be found here:
