When creating a customer system refresh image I get the message that the disk is full.  I am using an external disk with 200+ GB free. 

Is there any way of determining the space required for this image.

Any help would be very much approached.

Try creating a destination folder on your C: drive and name it Refreshimage, create the image to that folder.  You can then move it where ever you want.

 

Open the Elevated Command Prompt running it as Administrator.

 

Type in recimg -Createimage drive:\folder then press Enter.

It depends on the program, and how you were doing that.  I would get that all of the time, when trying to backup to my Lenovo ix2 NAS.  Now I just use Clonezilla on a USB Pendrive, and do a NFS backup of all of our machines to the NAS that way.

The refresh image will be the same size as the Windows partition.

It has nothing to do with that.  MS screwed up the way backups are done now in Windows 8.x and will not fix it.  Never happened with XP, Vista or 7, just Windows 8.x that this issue is going on.

Right you are! I should have read my notes before posting. The image does not include personal, files, pictures or setings these are retained from the current image. The image size depends on a few factors including how apps you have installed.
