I do agree with this method given by whs.

***Make sure that your system is clean of all infection before doing a image.

Without having to get into a whole debate as to why i'm still looking at this rather than a image, i have a question. Please lets not get back into the image thing right now i have my reasons. I just have one question. I have full rights on my PC. I have gone over the rights thing and theres just nothing to change that i can see because everything is already set to full control and theres no other rights to give unless theres something else i'm missing. And thats what i'm asking because while i can get into the sys info folder, it will not let me copy anything to another location. I even read a tutorial on how to do this and it is according to that a legit and workable solution. But i followed all the procedures to gain total control and i still cannot copy those files. What might i be missing that still will not allow me to copy them eben tho i am allowed into the folder?

The answer is simple - you do not have full rights. I do not understand why you are so stubborn and do not use imaging.
