I am running Windows 8.1, and maintenance is current. When I try to create a system image, I get an error message stating I do not have enough space for the system image. The error message and my disk configuration are in the attachment.

Help would certainly be appreciated because I simply do not understand why there is not enough space on a 1 TB WD My Passport Ultra external drive.

Thanks ...

If you continue to have problems with Windows Backup try using Easeus Todo Backup

I can't seem to get past the error, so I'm going to give Easeus Todo Backup a try. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have downloaded Todo Backup and successfully backed up my C drive. Now, when I try to "recover", I get the attached screen which implies only the boot partition will be recovered. The recommendation" is to recover both the boot partition and the system partition together. Is this a first step, or am I missing something? I'm just trying to get a handle on how to run this utility to restore a system image in the event of a problem.

Thanks

When Windows installs, it installs a small hidden 100MB partition called System Reserved that has the boot file in it. If you did not backup the Hidden System Reserved and the C: drive together then when you restore the C: drive Windows will not boot. If you are doing a full system backup. If you are just backing up files and folders, then you do not need to do this
You cannot restore your backup to your existing C: drive unless you are putting it onto a new or blank HDD. If you restore the backup you have, it will wipe out your drive and restore the backup. If you didn't do it right the computer may not boot, or something else could be missing.
Here is the manual to answer any other questions EaseUS Todo Backup Online Manual - Learn How to use Todo Backup.

Can anyone answer my original question regarding the error above? The error message just doesn't make much sense to me.

I read the article several times. It indicates I need a 320 MB Recovery Partition to successfully create a System Image since my hard drive is 1 TB. The first attachment is a display from Disk Management showing my Reserve Partition has 300 MB. According to the article, if I right click on the partition, I should be able to change the allocation. However, when I right click the Reserve Partition, I only get a "Help" box as shown in attachment two.

I would like some help at this point to increase the space in my Reserve Partition, given this situation.

Thanks ...

Update: I was able to create a "custom System Image" using the following command from the Admin prompt:

recimg -CreateImage e:\MySystemImage

without changing any partitions.
