    For crying out loud - people here are not paid technicians and are just trying to help.

    You have not given enough information about what you are imaging, whether pc is uefi, legacy bios etc.

    Your replies are very aggressive and people will be disinclined to help if you do not tone things down.

    Agreed. Sometimes theres NO helping someone. I hope many members see his posts and remember his attitude. I have unsubscribed from this Thread and added to list.

    I thought I could use a USB drive?

    Or is there something else I'm doing wrong?
    Quite simple, you are not doing anything basically wrong. The USB drive is not a large enough capacity. It would need to be a 256 GB or more drive.

    Whilst the image itself might just fit, more room is needed for overheads/working space.

    NTFS should be good, USB flash drives greater than 32 GB out of the box are usually exFAT.

    I tried using the third option for Network Location (NAS drive) and it just would not work in Windows 10, though it did in Windows 8.1 this was demonstrated to MS at the time.

    Currently MS recommend you use a third party Imaging application.
