Issue: How to Fix "An unspecified error occurred during system restore 0x80070780" on Windows?

When I try to perform System Restore, the process begins, and it goes up to approximately 30% or 76%, but it stops then, the system restarts. After that the message appears “System Restore did not complete successfully. An unspecified error occurred during system restore 0x80070780”. I’d be grateful for your advice.
