Windows 7: Shadow Copy error when trying to create a restore point in Windows 7

Yeah I am sorry. There is an audio problem with that video. I have tried to fix it but it does not seem to work.

:-)

My take on it is the problem _is_ the audio.

Plus I was never good at following the mouse pointer while 'the invisible hand' goes
through the motions. Screen shots would be better. I'm just beginning to find out where this
Macrium material is. My goal is to settle on a new backup strategy I can use all the
time.

Right now I'm in the process of a slow low level routine and will put NTFS
on the disk from Win7 administrator tools.

My progress is:

Completed a new low level format with the HDD Guru tool.
Loaded the adminstrative disk management routine in Win 7
and followed the wizard etc for a Simple Volume. The volume is now
recognized on system.

-> Caution here is go ahead and accept the drive letter assigned, else
it'll have to be done over.

Next I'll need some advice on how to start up Macrium. I have the ISO disk
given at a link above made and ready to use. That's as far as I am. I do not know how to request that a disk image (with none of the Shadow copy errors preventing me from doing Restores) sent to the D: drive assigned letter.

Retrieval will be a separate operation.

I'll look myself at the Macrium site for something I can print to paper. As stated elsewhere I'm not much good at following youtube animations.

From a tip at Microsoft on a Restore problem, one suggestion was make a Restore Point in Safe Mode.

That also failed-- same message displays.

How does Macrium (from above discussion) repair the Restore function with the VSS problem?

I have Macrium now. Found a Quick Start guide for it and have the WinPE .iso
which was given as a link earlier. Things should be ready to use.

You can always run with the WinPE. Then you are independent of the quirks in your system.

How much free space does the "C" partition have?

I am behind in answering here since notifications in mail is not going right for this thread.

The c: drive to copy is one partition on a 320Gb HD.

Can you explain more about the WinPE disc made from the link above?

That must be used stand- alone because in my first run of Macrium it requested that a Rescue disk be made. So I did that. It appeared that it needed a rescue disk for my Biostar motherboard since it references specific Nvidia drivers from the bios.

I may seem like I'm creeping along but I worry about losing data on my
primary HD for this rig. That is a 320 Gb. The target is a 500Gb. The target is one partition empty and newly formatted using the Administrator tool in Win7
to the whole drive which 467 as the given size.

Yeah right - use that rescue disc which cannot only recover images but it can also write images.

One more thing then I'll quit for now.

I loaded the WinPE disk .iso burned from the link given above.
Windows seemed to autoload the files on the Cd alright but then opened a dos box
at :

X:\windows\system32

and issued an error:

"a winpeshl.ini file is present but no commands were successfully launched. This could be caused
by incorrect formatting or an invalid executable name. Please consult the documentation...."

I'm confused about all these WinPE disks, one made by the link here and one made by Macrium when I ran the program.
