New to windows 8 and not technically minded so please give simple advice. Attached external hard drive with 866 GB of space to do a system image of 134 GB - now told there is not enough space to make a shadow copy - don't understand!

I believe that is referring to the native drive of 134GB not having enough space left on it to make a shadow copy.  Basically, free up some space on that 134GB drive so it can make the shadow copy so it will be able to tranfer the image to the large 866GB Hard drive.

 

I"ve had this problem too with windows 8.  It's very tempermental with image files.  May I suggest you try an 3rd party Image or backup softtware such as Macrium Reflect (free).  It's easy, and never have a problem with it..  Hope that helps some.   Hmm. why did I come here in the first place.  This question just popped up. . Take care.

Being a novice I'm not sure if by native drive you mean the C drive of my laptop. If so, it has over 300 GB of available space so the shadow copy should be fine. Any other thoughts?

Hi

 

I didn't encountered this error yet but doing a search in internet shows some possible causes. Major reason for this error is low free space in the system reserved partition.

 

To verify if it is the cause, do the following steps.

 

1 ) Open disk management. (diskmgmt.msc in the RUN dialog )

 

2 ) Right click on the System Reserved partition and select properties. If you can't find a partition with that label, look for partition marked as System (Probably without drive letter assigned).

Report the properties of System partition in next reply.

Hi,
Can't copy and paste as you have done above but here is what I think/hope you want:
There are 5 images of drives at the top with figures for Capacity and free space
1 = 500MB 500 MB
2 = 300 MB 300 MB
3 = 22.93 GB 22.93 GB
4 = 1.00 GB 1.00 GB
C:= 440.92GB 306.47 GB

In the panel underneath the sections for Disc 0 Basic 465.64 GB Online are:
500 MB Healthy (Recovery partition)
300 MB Healthy EFI System Partition
C: 44.92 GB NTFS Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, primary partition)
22.93 GB Healthy (Recovery partition)
1.00 GB Healthy (Recovery partition)

This is total gibberish to me but I hope it may let you help me!
Thanks

Hi

 

Win 8 64 bit uses GPT partition scheme as default. The EFI system partition used in the GPT is not easy to re-size. It is too risky to attempt. In Windows 7, it is not that difficult with the default MBR partitioning scheme. My knowledge about GPT is limited and even a deep search in internet didn't helped. It seems that no one is encountered this error on Windows 8.  

 

Instead of creating a system image, you can opt to create a backup image of the C drive. As it excludes the EFI system partition, it might work. Open Control Panel --> File Recovery and choose Setup Backup to create backup image of the C drive. More detailed info is on the below link.

Is this the same as setting up a File History?

Hi

 

File backup and file history are different things. File Backup is used for backing up a specific folder or entire drive to recover them in case of a disaster. It is like Norton Ghost. On the other hand, File History is a new feature introduced in Windows 8 that automatically backs up files that are in your libraries, contacts, favorites, Microsoft SkyDrive, and on your desktop. What makes it different is you can also find different versions of your files from a specific point in time. Over time, you'll have a complete history of your files. That is you can recover either one week older or two week older version of a specific file. It is the equivalent of Time Machine in the Macintosh.
