Copy D:\Recovery\windowsre\winre.wim and D:\Recovery\windowsre\boot.sdi to C:\Recovery\windowsre folder
Maybe you have to create that folder first! Those files/folders are hidden system folders!

Code:
 
reagentc/disable
REAGENTC /SETREIMAGE /PATH C:\Recovery\windowsre\winre.wim
Now post C:\Windows\System32\Recovery\ReAgent.xml

Code:
reagentc/enable
post bcdedit output as well

Hello again,

Dell doesn't want me to access the Recovery folder on the D drive - it won't let me open that folder! Instead of folders, the Dell logo appears, followed by :

Recovery Partition
Warning!

This area of your hard drive
(or partition) contains files used
for Datasafe Recovery process.

Do not delete or alter these files.

Any change to this partition could
prevent any recovery later.

I don't alter any files there. Nor do I delete any.

in elevated command prompt:

Code:
 
C:\
md \recovery\windowsre
D:\
cd \Recovery\windowsre
xcopy /h winre.wim c:\recovery\windowsre
xcopy /h boot.sdi c:\recovery\windowsre

Please check system restore settings as well Configuring System Restore In Windows 7 - Everything Microsoft | Leading Unofficial Microsoft Site

No fake drives there? If so configure them as system restore disabled. Enable system restore on any drive you want. gparted cloning did clone and didn't activate it on new ssd.
