SYSTEM IMAGE PROBLEM

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, so i want to make an image of the System files, you know, Windows.... the thing is that when i get to the system image window, it won't let me choose what drive to backup, and it chooses all of them and is telling me that it will use 370GB? **** that.... i just want to make a SYSTEM IMAGE, is that so hard to ask from windows? how can i do that?? could it be that my 2 hard disks are in RAID?

What are you using to do this? Something weird going on there...

I use Easeus Partiition Magic to ghost my system partition and save a a backup.

Its easy and its free and it wont make a 380Gb copy smile.gif

post a screenshot of your DISK MANAGEMENT screen, and we can tell what's going on. and tell us which HDDs are in RAID

the thing is that i don't know if my hard drives are in RAID, never really configured HDD's in RAID cuz i never really needed it, how can i tell if they are in RAID or not?

are you using intel's? press start then type RAPID STORAGE then press enter, post a screen shot of that

press start again then type COMPUTER MANAGEMENT then press enter, on the left pane select DISK MANAGEMENT, post a screen shot of that also

i can tell that your HDDs are not in raid array, but it's weird that you can't backup your system drive alone

To do a SystemState backup, you can use the command line version thats built into Win7. The command you use in a command prompt is: -

wbadmin start backup -allCritical -backuptarget:D:

That should create a folder on your D: drive called WindowsImageBackup
