System Reserve Partition keeping me from creating system image!
I have a seemingly easily fixable problem. I am on Win 7 Pro x64, and attempting to create a system image on a free partition (on another drive all together). The partition that I am trying to save to, is actually slightly bigger than my C:\ partition. So that's
not the issue.
I am getting this error message
"There is not enough disk space to create the volume shadow copy on the storage location [...] this applies to both the backup storage destination and the volumes included in the backup. Minimum requirement: For volumes less than 500 mb, the minimum
is 50 mb of free space [...]"
I know this is refering to my "System Reserve" partition (which windows forced on me) and it is about 70% full. Since it is only 100mb total, VSS cant make a shadow copy, and it is preventing me from using this very nice built in feature of Win7.
Help! Thanks in advance.
