    Win 7 System Image Failure Ox80780119

    I can backup individual partitions using Windows Backup, but as soon as I include the System Reserved partition I get the error message about "not enough disk space to create the volume shadow copy" on the storage location. Same problem with making a System Image. Drives are:

    Drive 0 Reserved 100Mb, 32Mb free
    Drive C 100Gb, 40Gb Free
    Drive D 197Gb, 168Gb free

    Drive 1 Backup Drive 931 Gb, 931 Gb Free

    Help Appreciated please

    This is rather a lengthy article because the author goes into detail as to what is causing the error, but the remedial steps are quite simple.

    I already have Easus, but I like to alternate my monthly backups with different programs to different locations

    Glad to see that you were able to get it sorted.

    I only ever use Windows system image which so far hasn't let me down.
