I have a Gateway Laptop, model NV75520u
Window 7 Home Premium ver. 6.1, service pack 1
6 gigs Ram
500 GB hard drive
WD Element external drive 2.0 TB
I did a windows 7 system image on one computer onto this external drive. In order to be able to image another computer onto the same drive, I renamed the image file from the first computer by placing a word description in the filename.
When I tried to do a disc image of this laptop (see above), I got an error msg saying that there was not enough disc space for the volume shadow. But when I check the amount of free space on the external drive, it shows that i have 1.78 TB free. this laptop is only going to require about 142 GB of space. Any ideas about why Microsoft disc image is saying I don't have enough space? Thanks.
