I am trying to create a system image but somehow cant do it becoz it is including all the files of RECOVERY(System) disk and C drive which adds up to 78 GB(8+70) but available space on D drive is only 58GB.
Please suggest a solution since I thought system image includes only necessary drivers and windows files but this image is including data in my documents folder too.
2)Also since there is a drive named RECOVERY(SYSTEM) on laptop,is there really need to create a system image ??
System Image is a complete image of your HD...the whole thing. Based on your comments, you may really want to create a system restore point. Read the Help and Support material (on the Start Menu) regarding system protection, system restore, and images.
Since I dont get any installation DVD/USB flash drive so i wanted something with which I could get back my laptop in case something goes wrong.
I was thinking of creating a repair disc after creating system image.
Sorry but I ddint get you.Shouldnt system image only contain win7OS and drivers.Why is it including all the files ?
I dont want to back up rest of my data with system image.I wanted an image with fresh laptop.Is it possible ?
I don't trust system restore anymore because it didnt work for me when I used it on my xp pc few months back.
Sorry if I am messing this up but clearly I havent been able to understand how to back up my OS only ...figuring it out for months
