151GB. I think I know why...
I downloaded Saints Row: The Third recently.

You might just squeeze one image into the 143GB partition but only if you do it the way I posted earlier.

I did try. It said the backup drive didn't have enough space.

I'm not surprised. You might be able to do an image with free Macrium (Link in my sig) but I think what you really need is a bigger backup drive or to split data off your Windows partition.

No problems. Go for as big a drive as you can afford. You can always partition it and use the balance for something else. A 1TB drive is not 2x the price of a 500GB.
