    No, I didn't because I didn't have access to my wife's laptop at the time. Also, I wasn't sure what this was all about....

    "This will image partition T: on the root of disk E:"

    I'm hesitant to start partitioning disks without knowing what T is and root disk E is. I'm just a user and I don't want to do anything that may make changes that I don't want. In fact, I don't even know what disk E is. I'm not an idiot when it comes to PCs but I'm not an expert either and I don't like to run commands that I don't fully understand.

    I think I'm going to try to get a fix for Windows backup so it runs the normal way first. By doing a search for the entire error message, I found a lot of information but I didn't have time to go through it all the other day. It was obvious that I wasn't the only person having the problem so maybe someone has a fix.

    The command is Windows backup in it's purest form. "Partition T" is the partition you want to image. Just replace "T" with the real letter of that partition. And "disk E" is the letter of the disk to which you want to write the image. Replace "E" also with the letter of the disk which you will use for the backup. It will write it to that disk and you cannot specify a particular folder - that's why I said to the root of the disk.
