Windows 7: AOMEI Disk Copy freeze at 99 percent and no option to exit

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Something else that may be of concern is if the Shadow Copy service is working correctly. AOMEI may not need it, but I believe it speeds up cloning.

Yes, file hippo has AOMEI v 3.0 and may others!

You could also try Macrium Reflect free, it is recommended my many here on SevenForums!

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Saved by half on the backup. The half I need-- a large meda cache is intact. But booting to that
target disk started up and then went to a BSOD in doing a routine to 'set up the desktop' which of course
I would normally not see.

It's worth another try in the future and from a USB.

I checked both disks, the Seagate is in the blue for health and has few about 4k hours. It runs all the time.The target is a used Hitachi 2Tb and is in the blue yet but has about 35k hours on it.

For the startup problem, is there any way to drag and drop the core folder of Win7 to the backup? It wants to complete but that 99% may have left an end of file off or something. The Hitachi is showing all good in Crystal Disk. I don't know if another prog would show something different for this glitched part of the transfer.

I've gone to the file hippo and went back and found the 3.0. I out that on the thumb drive and it seemed
to install correctly.

Just now I'm waiting for a good time for a four run at it.

I got he AOMIE 3.0.

Some unusual events happened. Just to test on some scratch drives in this case Windows 10 not 7
I noticed an uninvited Update happening.

I looked up what causes this:

Difference between the Manual and Manual (trigger start) services

What it talks about is the indication in services.msc where I turned off Windows Update but
apparetnly not enough other things. There's another oine called Update Remediation at least in Win10
where I'm seeing this.

Is there no end to it?

What the link describes is a trigger event (which you can see noted in services) at the presemce of
adding a USB device.

Also relevant to this AOMEIE discussion is the fact that AOMEI program adds it's own service to the

I do not wish to have any of this happening. Microsoft stoppiing the current update in Win10 due to data errors is just one example of why I don't want the interference.

Can anyone give some samples on how to turn off trigger events and also avoid fresh
services being added? I think it is applicable to all but possibly just Win10. In my Windows Update service I also had 'retries' turned off but maybe didn't do it effectively.

Of note, I caught the Update running at about 30% completion since I was doing the AOMEI backup and not watching every minute.

On which screen is the update "Date Completed" given?

If I read an earlier question correctly, I do not believe dropping the Windows folder into a full image will give you the results you are wanting.

Just a few notes on this. I wound up reverting to my old backup program run from cd. Old equipment, old program.

On the Updater problem, there is a way to go in and delete the updates you don't want. I don't
know for certain how effective that is. Also along with turning off Windows Update in services.msc
there is another thing to do in group policies editor which I print here for anyone interested rather than making more links:

Option 3: Group Policy Editor

Open the Run command (Win + R), in it type: gpedit.msc and press enter.
Navigate to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Update.
Open this and change the Configure Automatic Updates setting to '2 - Notify for download and notify for install'

How to Turn off Windows Updates in Windows 10

You can do this using the Windows Update service. Via Control Panel > Administrative Tools, you can access Services. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Update and turn off the process.
To turn it off, right-click on the process, click on Properties and select Disabled."

[My note: There is another screen in services where you turn off a number of 'retries' if the system tries
once then twice etc to do what it wants. Select "No action taken" at each. Many good reasons to not move beyond Windows 7. I advanced to Win7 to use one audio editor program available only for 64 bit operation.]

We got off track but for completion's sake on AOMIE I give these details for any Windows 10 viewers.
I'm pursuing all this on TenForums.

A long time ago, in an app, far, far away, there was an app called XTree(Gold) that would let you copy/move -only- newer files, globally so you wouldnt have to constantly answer Yes. I hoped MS would've made this a copy/move option for only newer files/same name with 7 (or with any other OS)....
