I have an Acer laptop running Windows 10 32 bit. I have been trying to create a backup system image on a backup hard drive but keep getting a message that RPC server is unavailable. I have checked Services and found that all RPC services are set to automatic and are running. I have stopped and restarted those services and rebooted, but get the same message. From Microsoft forums I have found this is a relatively recent problem, and the only solutions appear to be highly technical, and probably beyond my expertise.

Has anybody got a simple solution, or do I just wait for the next update and hope that fixes it? Thanks.

I'm just using Windows backup and restore utility. Figured if Microsoft supply it with their software, it should work. Silly me!
