    Hi, are you using non-supported legacy Backup and Restore (Windows 7)? If so.. please don't... Go 3rd party - MR as Matthew Wai says and has been recommended time and again. Even MS says use a 3rd party solution.

    Welcome to Ten Forums.

    It's good that you are trying to make a system image. But please take Microsoft's advice and use something else. Microsoft's built in system imaging has been a deprecated feature for more than three years now.....
