System cannot find System 32

HP Recommended
HP 24-r014
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am receiving an error message stating my restoration is incomplete.  The Windows Command Processor reads


The system cannot find the drive specified. 

What do I need to do to recover System32

The restoration failed!  System32 is a folder that contains lots and lots of Windows system files.  You do not want to remove it because if you did, Windows would no longer function.


This error message indicates that  some or all of the components in that folder are missing or corrupt.


So, the restoration process you used did not actually work.
