Windows 7: Backup Error code: 0x81000019

socgry,

An interesting tool in Windows 7 is the "Snipping" tool.

The Snipping tool enables you to take a snapshot of the rectangular area you select.

I keep the Snipping tool on my taskbar for convenience.

To run the snipping tool:
WIN key | type snipping | Enter key

Experiment with it. The picture will be saved as a .PNG file which is a graphics file format.

Now let's see if I can find that link explaining the procedure for including a file with your post.

socgry,

Ok now I see what the problem is.

You have marked the 100 MB partition as the "active" drive.

What needs to be done is for that 100 mb partition to be made inactive and the C to be made active.

Now I'm very tired right now (it's nearly 0300 hours here) and I don't want to make a mistake on this. If we are lucky Greg Rocker will come along and explain the procedure. After grabbing some shuteye, I'll check back in.

If it was my machine I'd delete that 100 mb partition. I don't have one myself on this notebook and I don't have a manufacturer's restore partition either. But that's all personal preferences.

OK, I found this, a method to create a new System Reserved partition. It won't hurt if it doesn't fix your original problem, as it can be changed back.

If the System reserved partition cannot be extended using Disk Management because of lack of contigous space adjacent to it, creating a new system volume is the workaround. Here are the steps to move the system volume to any other volume:


1. Choose where you want to have your system volume. Few things you need to keep in mind:
a. System volume can only be created on a primary partition of MBR disk.
b. If system volume & boot volume are together, then BitLocker feature cannot be used to encrypt volumes on your machine.

2. Suggest creating a new volume (say F: ) on the same disk that contains the boot partition of size of about 490 MB (be careful to keep it less than 500 MB).

3. Assuming Windows 7 is installed on C: on your machine. From an elevated command-prompt run: bcdboot.exe /s C:\Windows /s F:.

4. From elevated command-prompt run: DISKPART

5. From the disk part command-prompt:
DISKPART> select volume F
DISKPART> active


Now you can reboot your machine and F: will become the system volume. You can undo this by repeating the same steps using the original system volume (you have to assign drive-letter to it) to revert to your previous configuration.

Also, does system restore work on your system? That seems to also be an issue when your problem occurs. A Guy

HELP! i saw what karlsnooks was talking about by changing the C drive to the active drive instead of the 100mb partition. i right clicked the C drive and made it the active drive instead of "SYSTEM." i then remembered i needed to change my page filing back to windows regulated and did so, then re-booted the system.

my desktop now won't boot up. it goes to a black screen saying "BOOTMGR is missing, press ctrl+alt+del to restart"

i tried system restore and it finished completely, then when it tried to boot up it went back to the same black screen

To recover System MBR from 100mb partition into Windows 7:

Boot Windows 7 DVD Repair Console or Repair CD, Press SHift F10 at first screen, type in Command box:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (confirm this is Windows 7 HD)
LIST PARTITION
SELECT PARTITION 1 (confirm this is 100mb Sys Reserved)
INACTIVE
SELECT PARTITION 2 (confirm this is Windows 7 partition)
ACTIVE
SELECT DISK 1 (confirm this is 2 tb data drive)
LIST PARTITION
SELECT PARTITION 1 (confirm this is data partition)
INACTIVE
EXIT

Now enter DVD/CD Repair console, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to write the MBR to Windows 7 partition until Windows 7 starts.

Now try saving a Windows 7 backup image to data drive.

Once you're sure you don't want 100mb any longer, you can use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to delete 100mb partition and Resize Windows 7 into its space.

ok, i managed to fix the boot problem with gregrocker's DISKPART. i don't have a repair disk or any windows 7 disks from when i purchased my desktop, but i was able to use a different windows 7 disk i had previously installed on another computer that has since been ruined. so now i guess i should try creating a new SYSTEM partition that is 490mb, right?

Why would you do that? Isn't Windows 7 partition System Active now that you completed the steps given and it started?

Will Windows 7 Backup create an Image for you now to store on data drive?

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management drive map and listings using Snipping Tool in Start Menu.

I linked the Repair CD ISO file for you to burn if needed, or Windows 7 backup will create one.

after each fail i get the same error message: "A shadow copy could not be created. Please check "VSS" and "SPP" application event logs for more information.
Details: Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data." and then it gives the options to try to run backup again or change backup settings.

when i expand the details at the bottom, this is all i get:
Backup time: (date/time i attempted)
Backup location: Expansion Drive (J: ) my external hard drive.
Error code: 0x81000019

i have a 2Tb external hard drive so i'm pretty sure it shouldn't be a space issue.

please help
thanks

You must have around 40 MB free space for backup to complete successfully

Follow Gregs instructions. I was trying to correct the SR partition. As per Gregs advice, you won't need one. You should be able to create an image without one. A Guy
