I am having this issue, cant optimise the system partition 350mb. 8.1 official release,
This is also causing a huge problem, the optimise option in windows 8.1 allows me to optimise the c: drive but not the system partition this prevents a system image backup...!!
Due to the system partition being out of space for a shadow copy to be placed onto it the backup fails every time with this error code, -- 0x80780119 --.
Backups are a huge factor in operating systems and since upgrading I cant backup my system using windows image backup, if I could optimise the system partition and straighten out the file structure within it (free up some space) for the shadow copy then the volume shadow copy could be placed onto the drive but it cant...
This all worked fine in 8.0 but not now...please fix this problem!?
Not being able to backup your system is not good enough...
here is my my issue again in pictures...
1.system volume needs optimising
but pressing the optimise for this does nothing at all.. current status remains "Needs optimisation".
The way an ssd reclaims drive space is to use the optimise function, this not working prevents the reclaim for files/data to be written to space where files have been deleted previously. Giving the impression the drive/partition is full when really its not full just needs optimising/trimmed.
2. initiate the system image backup
3. both volumes to be backed up
4. error message due to insufficient space on the system partition for shadow copy.
5. finally here is a capture of the current disk setup on my system, notice the system partition only has 17mb free space and according to the above error message I need atleast 50mb free for the volume shadow copy !? Due to this I cant create a backup of my system using windows 8.1 !
(system partition has no drive letter assigned to it 350mb)
PLEASE HELP !! Thanks for reading.
