Disk Image Size

Hello,
I have just created a disk image using Windows 7 built in imaging feature and stored it to an external hard drive. When I right click and pick properties, I am told the image size is 0 MB. Is this normal? The entire process went as it should with no error messages.

Hello NHboomer, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, this is normal. You would have to open the Backup folder in the "WindowsImageBackup" folder and click on "Continue" to approve opening it first. Afterwards you should see the size in properties.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
