Hi,

 

I recently had this message pop up after trying to create a back up of 'C' drive using Macrium Reflect. I needed to do this because I had and still have the red cross flag on task bar saying 'Check your backup'.

I used Windows 7 back up to do this but the message still persisted.

Anyway, I created a back up on an external disk via USB3 enclosure (Inatek). (Still have the same message)

Thence upon restart I had the above message on boot up.

I used the WinRE repair and all seems OK, but I did get a message saying I was running out of disk space.

The presumably, boot sector now named 'G' drive is 100MB.

Is this sufficient for the purpose?

I tried to use MiniTools partition wizard to extend the volume but it said the minimum it would extend it would be 6GB (approx). Should I accept this size?

I attach screenshots of the current drive configuration.

 

Any help much appreciated.

You should not have only 1MB free in the System Reserved Partition and it usually does not have a drive letter attached. Right Click Computer. Select Properties. In the left pane select System Protection. Under Protection Settings is System Restore enabled for drive G:?

Hi JohnC_21, Drive 'G' isn't listed in System Restore it seems.

 

Attached screenshot of the drives.

I would leave it alone unless it starts being an issue. If it starts giving you trouble you could always delete the partition using the bootable Partition Wizard. Create a new NTFS partition, mark it active, then rebuild the BCD using your WinRE disk.

Thanks so much for your information, I feel relieved but I may create a new partition after the holiday.

 

Merry Christmas!

Happy New Year to all.

 

Was still getting the message above, so decided to use MiniTools and delete partition and then rebuild with the Windows WINRE repair process. It wouldn't delete totally, so I tried a Disc Wipe.

Next, I inserted the Win7 setup disc and rebooted. The system went straight into the O/S! Due to ssd it was rapid! 

I checked My Computer and I had renamed the drive (in MiniTools) but it was still designated 'G' partition of now 99.9MB (78.1MB free). See attachment.

Since then I have not had any of the messages, so I suppose it's sorted?

 

Regards and thanks,

Usually a drive letter is not assigned to the System Reserved Partition but If your computer is booting fine you are good to go. Just leave the System Reserved Partition as G:
