Just for future reference, I have used the method below (quoted from the 3rd page in this thread):

And it worked. I was finally able to do the windows backup image / shadow copy. However
, now I have another small problem.
My C drive was left with a 100MB empty space where the System-Reserved partition used to be. See image below:
I tried using the Partition Wizard Bootable CD
to extend the Windows partition into this space (in other words, enlarge it to the left), but it doesn't let me.
Any ideas of how I can get these 100MB back?
It it possible to make a 100MB partition there and then "merge" both partitions? Seems like the merge function is disabled in the free version of Partition Wizard.
Thanks in advance!
