Windows 7: windows System Image fails at about 150 gigs

16 Jun 2015   #11

windows 7 home premium 64 bit

i've finally completed the partitioning & file moves - there is now no problem imaging the the smaller 60gigs of just OS & apps

maybe it was a bad file on the the source drive? i've seen other posts where this was thought to be the case & i did delete a lot in the process - used 'disk cleanup' and deleted all restore points... in addition to moving all the data files

anyway good enough for now :) thanks all for the help

That is good to hear believe me I know how frustrating and time taking it can be when things won't image correctly... Since you put it down to a bad file that can constitute as being in a bad sector also so yes I thought as much, unfortunately I get to work with a lot of older and misused HDD's... bear in mind if you have the same problem again try with Drive Image XML it will copy the data it will take quite a long time but it will work so it's not really for everyday use but damn good for an emergency.
