A Workaround Without Repartitioning:

When trying to make a system image of Windows 7, I got error 0x80780119. After searching this thread (plus others), I found my 100 MB System Reserved partition had grown a large USN journal. I assigned it drive letter F:\.

Fsutil usn queryjournal F:

Then I ran this command to clear and disable the USN journal on my System Reserved partition:

fsutil usn deletejournal /N /D F:

This freed 48 MB. The USN journal on my System Reserved partition remained disabled after a reboot, which I verified by re-running the query. Subsequently, I was able to make a system image without error.

Look here for details on FSUtil: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc788042(WS.10).aspx

This entire thread is hilarious, I just love step 2 of this.
Bye Bye windows.

There are many other threads that actually explain how to use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to shrink the left side of C to extend System Reserved if needed.

However the only reason I can think of this is needed is if not enough space is available on Sys Reserved to create the needed SysVolInfo file when imaging using Win7 backup imaging. But those threads are searchable by the related error code.

We still get threads on the merits of having or not the System Reserved partition. I can take it or leave it and wouldn't waste a second thought on either unless it was required for BitLocker or I planned to Dual Boot.

Ya, I have tested windows 7 imaging WITHOUT the SR partition and it works perfectly, but this is an old thread.

Step 2) delete C: partiton

Windows update, KB3033929 on SOME systems, causes a re-update loop, which continually fails to install the update, thus preventing "get Windows 10" from working. SOME users who have dual-boot systems have fixed the problem in various ways. Other users, like me, who do NOT have dual-boot systems have discovered that a System Reserved Partition smaller than 100 MB causes the problem. Mine is 55MB. MS states that the SRP is required to support some Windows features (see MS for a list). This update is still a problem.

So there IS a valid reason for keeping (and expanding) the SRP. Many users have stated that Partition Wizard (bootable) can do it.

My only concern is that shrinking the Windows ptn (C: in the front may cause the system to become un-bootable, or that there is a step required that no one is mentioning. Does anyone have first-hand knowledge that shrinking in front not a problem and there are no other steps needed to make room for expanding the SRP?

The installer always creates a 100 MB SR partition, if it`s smaller then something`s wrong, the only reason to have a SR partition is for Bitlocker, if you don`t use it, you don`t need a SR partition.

PW will do whatever you want, but better to just mark C active, put the system files on C and loose the SR partition, but the decision is yours.

There are no reasons I know of not to have System Reserved. But if you think you've found one then you can move the Bootmgr - Move to C with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums.

Once C is marked System Active Boot in Disk Mgmt (System means its booting the OS, Active points to the partition you want to do that, Boot means what's presently booted) you can delete System Reserved partition in Disk Mgmt. It's too small to bother recovering the space but if you wanted to use How to extend partition easily with Partition Wizard - video help

The SRP is used for the BCD store (for booting), Windows Recovery Environment, and for Bitlocker for those editions that support it.

Yes, Windows WILL work w/o it, but since it's only 100MB, why mess with the overall system design?

And I still want to know if there are any pitfalls to shrinking the C partition on the left end to make room for fixing the SRP.
