Windows 7: Windows 7 imaging claims out of memory

Windows 7 imaging claims out of memory

I just purchased a new 4 terabyte WD external drive and I wanted to back up my computer hard drive.

I have Windows 7 (with latest updates). I went to the control panel to Backup and Restore, and clicked create image. After running for about 10 minutes it came back with an error that said not enough memory to complete the process. I have almost 4 TB of memory and my hard drive is 700 GB.

I tried it 3 times with the same error message.

Any thoughts by anyone?

Welcome to Seven Forums hiltonhead.

The 4TB is not memory, it's storage space, memory refers to your RAM. You may have to many other processes running for the image to work.
In the Start type resmon and click the Memory tab. Post a screen shot of it.

This is the preferred, best way to upload an image to a post.
