    I don't use System Restore, but check Services > Volume Shadow Copy, right click on it and set it to Automatic start.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Dave,

    Did you Reboot? Or you can manually start the service.

    See this.

    Open an elevated Command Prompt and type

    chkdsk /r

    and hit Enter. It will tell you that it can't run now, and ask if you want it to run on the next restart. Type

    y

    and hit Enter. Then restart the computer. Chkdsk may take a while to run, but let it run; don't stop it.

    After chkdsk has completed, from an elevated Command Prompt type

    sfc /scannow

    and hit Enter. Let it run to completion. Let us know the results.

    Did the chkdsk /r, after about 14 hours still showing "Scanning and repairing drive (C) 100% complete."
    Rebooted and went to File Explorer, This PC, Right click Drive (C) Properties, Tools, Check. Got the following
    messages:-
    system restore 3.png
    system restore 5.png

    Then ran sfc /scannow, no integrity violations found
    Thanks

    I assume that you still have your 1803 Upgrade USB thumb drive.

    Try this. Let us know the results.
