I recently bought a 4TB USB drive, so that I can make some image backups of my system. I have an image backup program, but when booting from a rescue disk, the output of this is not recognised as an image. That was when I discovered that Win 7 has a program built-in! As the guys on Top Gear say, how hard can it be???
When I try to create a backup image, the program runs for a few minutes and then fails with the following:
I have spent ages perusing microsoft's systems, looking for anything which will help. I *did* find a message saying that it was a fault in the program, and it would not write to drives bigger than 2 TB. The message gives directions for a work-around for WD disks, but mine is a Seagate.
I have a 1-year-old PC with Win 7 64-bit, and plenty of memory, hard drive space, and everything else. Why on Earth would a 64-bit version of windows not be able to write to a larger disk drive??? The shelf at BestBuy was full of 3TB drives when I bought mine, so this must be a problem that people know about... Surely????
I throw myself on the wisdom of the group!
