I successfully created the image to an external drive, apparently. It took some time and the moving activity bar moved to completion.

 

Opening the drive there is no sign of the image altho there is one I created last year. Also altho it said that so much of the drive would be used the resulting free space seems the same as before the creation.

 

It is not in my C drive so what has happened? Any suggestions please.

The supplied Windows 10 (and in prior versions as well) is simply something to be avoided.  I've been using Easeus Todo Backup Free for several years, and never had any problems with it.  It's free for home use, and there are paid versions as well if you want something for a business.  There are hundreds more 3rd party programs as well, just avoid the buggy one that comes with Windows.

 There's also System Restore, which isn't a replacement for full system backups, but will allow you to restore your system (but not your data) to an earlier point in time.  You can activate it in the System applet of the Control Panel.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Thanks for that. I have used Easeus Todo Backup Free also successfully and am now using Macrium Reflect which seems OK. It does seem my problem could be traced to Windows!
