Windows 7: Backing up System

I've not seen other reports that Windows 7 backup imaging fails to another HD on the same system, but it has so many other deficiencies it's prob best not to take a chance.

Besides free Macrium, Paragon, there is the premium Acronis imaging/cloning app which comes free with any WD or Seagate HD in the mix. That is likely the best option if it applies. The Manual is on the WD or Seagate downloads page and easy to understand.

Windows 7 Professional x64 Linux Mint 16


Installed windows HP to a 40 GB drive
Put windows backup image on 80 GB drive
removed 40 put in 160
tried to restore image to 160
this is the error message I get

This is when trying to do the restore from the same flashdrive I used to do the install, If I use the dvd it seems to be restoring it just fine.

And success !

You're saying that the error is only encountered trying to re-image to separate HD using bootable flash stick installer, but using Windows 7 DVD the re-imaging succeeds?

Someone in Backup like Michael may know the reason why.
