I assume you are trying to backup the the C drive onto the F drive.
I suggested making the C drive smaller, but that may not help.
You could split the F drive into 2 partitions as pjhutch mentions, but I don't know if that would help either. It wouldn't hurt to try that.
Macrium Reflect Free Edition is the most commonly mentioned substitute for Windows Backup and Restore. It's an excellent application, but there may be something else going on that would prevent it from working properly as well. It's probably easier to understand and it wouldn't hurt to try it either.
You are using an external drive for the backups and that can complicate things.
Or you could wait for more comments.
