Windows 7: Create disk image after moving user profiles

23 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro
Create disk image after moving user profiles

I have win 7 pro installed on a 64gb SSD. I have my user profile folders on a separate data HD. When I try to run windows backup and create a disk image of the OS drive, it's throwing an error that the destination is not found. It's an external 1gb esata drive that is powered on, detected in windows and freshly formatted.

From what I read, doing a disk image with user profiles on a different drive causes issues, and I'm wondering if that's what I'm experiencing. I wasn't able to find any helpful info on how to fix/avoid the issue though. Does anyone know a way to do this, or is anyone doing this successfully (without any tweaks) so I can rule this specific variable out as the issue?

Thanks in advance!
