I've been dealing with this issue since yesterday when my acronis back-up couldn't complete due to a VSS issue which is when I discovered my System Restore itself is pretty much gone. 
If I open restore, I get this error:
There was an unexpected error in the property page:
System restore encountered an error. Please try to run System Restore again. (0x81000203)
Please close the property page and try again.
I have gone into regedit, there is nothing listed as or for system restore anywhere. I have gone into services and set things to automatic, nothing works. I have run sfc /scannow, I have run DISM online restore health and it's the same. I tried to run acronis restore and that won't work either (because apparently it's missing the VSS thing it needs.)
Any help on fixing this weird issue would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
