Ugh. For the last 7 hours I've been dealing with the neighbor's computer.
The original problem was their hard drive was failing, causing everything to run very slowly. Today I installed a new hard drive and reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium x64. The installation went fine. After setting up their profiles and making sure it was up-to-date I proceeded to create a system image so they could load that instead of having to reinstall in the future.
Their external hard drive is some annoying ClickFree C2 or something. It was temperamental just trying to get it to show up. I hate removable hard drives with auto-backup programs, I prefer a normal removable hard drive. After getting it to work right I saved a system image to it. However I had renamed the WindowsImageBackup folder to something else. This was a problem because I found out there were a couple things I had wanted to do before making that image. So I went to restore that image and it said there were no images found. I thought it was a problem with drivers but it turns out the folder must be renamed to WindowsImageBackup before restoring.
After restoring the image I activated Windows which was one of the things I had wanted to do. After that I tried to create a system image again. However, it gave me an error saying there wasn't enough room for the shadow volume copy , 0x80780119 I believe. However, the image should only take a measly 17GB since it is a new installation, and there is over 700GB of free space on the external HDD!
I've searched online trying to find a solution and can't. Please help!
