Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM x64 Backup Utility

Windows 7 RTM x64 Backup Utility

I'm trying to be a good Windows 7 citizen and give the built in backup chance instead of installing Acronis or Macrium or the sort.

I'm running this on my Dell D830 laptop with a 500gb internal drive in it which only has about 130gb used. I'm trying to run the back to a 250gb internal drive in the drive bay.

It fails every time with the error that there is not enough disk space to back up.

I also tried backing this up to an external 750GB drive but I received the same error.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Josh
