    System image backup


    Hey guys. Sorry if this ain't the proper section. I'm trying to back up a system image on windows 10 but every time it gives me an error saying the backup failed and that "The specific backup storage location has the shadow copy on another volume." (0x80780038)." I've looked up quite some fixes but none of them seems to work.

    Thanks, any input would be much appreciated.

    Hi IMHO I would forget the W10 back up feature and use a imaging program like Macrium Reflect. Macrium is very popular here on the forum.
    Opps sorry Clive! We had the same thoughts LOL Here's a safe down load link!

    donetao, thank you. I just literally installed and set windows up yesterday though, don't think anything's messed up. It's activated too if that has anything to do with it.

    Hi I never got it to work on my W7 OS. That's why I suggested Macrium!
    Here's some links here on the forum. That's the best I can do. Sorry!!
    PS you are welcome. Wish I had a better solution!
    Lots of good stuff here, but will take time to go through it.

    I have done hundreds of backups and restores using macrium. It is easy to use, fast, reliable, and free. Takes me a 2-3 minutes to image my OS drive. Windows image backup on the other hand....
