    I was not told I did not have enough disk space. Just a bad location or something like that.
    However, I once used a 16GB USB and it did tell me there were not enough disk space.
    48 GB are used in my C drive. There are other items besides system image that contribute to the 48 GB usage. Yes ? Such as , my pps, doc, pictures etc.
    What are you trying to do? Are you trying to make a recovery drive:

    Or are you trying to make a system image?
    System Image - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    A system image includes "an exact copy of a drive or partition which can be used to restore your PC to the state it was in at the time the image was made." You would need some serious compression to fit a system image with 48 GB used space onto 29.8 GB flash drive.

    I don't think that will help with Windows 10 built in system imaging. It appear as if Windows 10 system imaging excludes USB flash drives. But it will work with Macrium Reflect Free. In fact, what I have done in the past is use a 64 GB flash drive to make a Macrium Reflect Free rescue USB. Then store the image right onto the same flash drive.

    I know it does not work with the Windows imaging. Try free Macrium. That will do it.

    No need to buy a new stick. Windows imaging does not work with sticks.

    LOL - Navy must have been typing at the same time.

    OK. Thank you to both of you.

    So much for using an USB flash drive.

    I just ran a test using a USB 3.0 / FAT32 and it seemed to work fine.

    You are doing FILE backup. Yes ?

    I was asking about system Image backup which requires NTFS format.
