At present I only have a extremely low 20 megs lefts of HDD space on the partition. I need to get this back up working ASAP.

then follow the first link I gave which has instructions I gave to someone else. Within this is a link to specific guidance on deleting USN journal files which can clog up system reserved. It's quite straightforward.

Which link is that ? I came across this I don't know whether this problem is related to VSS or the link posted which is what I'm working with.

After digging and searching for answers, the in your face answer which solved the problem, was low HDD space which prevented the program from doing a backup

If Windows is on C: drive partition and I install a new HDD that I want to replace the old HDD boot partition from a backup. When restoring the boot partition backup which contains windows, will the new drive be automatically set to C: or only will the backup change it to C: ?

Do backups take into effect network settings etc, I want to be guaranteed that I get an exact restore computer restore, on the new HDD without any data loss or settings lost. What happens to the previous windows active boot partition if windows is not removed from it, will I get a dual boot option, until I remove the old windows boot partition ?

1) Windows always wants to restore to C: - shouldn't be an issue. When restoring an image to a new HDD make sure the new HDD is the only internal connected.
2) I believe a reimage will retain network settings. Others may care to comment.
3) I don't understand your last question. A reimage to a new HDD will restore the MBR, System Reserved and the OS partition exactly as they were when the image was made. Reimaging to a new HDD will insist on an automatic reformat and partition structure to reflect the state the image was in.

Windows imaging takes care of this for you. With Macrium you must specifically restore the MBR, system reserved and OS partitions.

There will be other physical drives internally connected, what issue will arise ?

Safe to assume with Macrium that the boot restore disc created with Macrium will restore the MBR, system reserved and OS partitions, not as a partition rather install the backup on the complete drive omitting creating the partition ?

When this is done the previous drive with the windows partition will be physically installed on the drive, will Windows recognize the new boot (restored) HDD as well as the old boot partition HDD, until I remove the old windows boot partition ?
