Windows 7: error 0x80780119 ->plz help

error 0x80780119 ->plz help

ok am trying to image my C: drive (windows 7 home 64bit system drive) and i get and error message that reads " Threre is not enough disk space to create the volum shadow copy on storage location. Make sure that for all volume to be backup up, the minimum disk space required for shadow copy creation is available. this applies to both the backup storage destination and volume included in the backup. Minimum requirement for Volumes less than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 50 megabyte of free space. for voulimes more than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 320 megabytes of free space. Recommended at least 1 gigabytes free of disk space on each volumes if volumes size is more than 1 gigabytes (0x80780119)"

I think the problem is that my "System Active, Primary, Partition" is low on space.

Its a cap is 133mg and it has 28 mg space free.

What i would like 2 know is how to free up space so i may Image my C: drive.

Any help would be awesome/
