I am trying to make a system image of my drive before switching to Windows 10 (I guess that is now necessary to stay safe)  I bought a new Seagate external drive with 1TB on it, my computer has less than 500GB but every time I try to create a system image it says it cannot be completed because a critical volume does not have enough space.  Error #0x81000033  Can anyone help?

1. You must add memory, if not enough or select, what to backup;
2. If You will upgrade system, there isn't needed nothing to backup, because Your files will stay all on the same place, only Windows will be upgraded;
3. If You say, that 1TB is not enough, then it is not computer, then it is already small server. Why should be in computer so much stored? Use some other place for storing.

I don't think you understood.  I am trying to make a system image before I upgrade to 10.  I have seen that you should do this.  My computer has less than 500 GB on it - I am a photographer.   My new seagate backup drive is 1TB,  much bigger than the data on my computer.  But windows says there is not enough room on the Seagate to backup the data on my laptop.

Forget the "system image".  Use Macrium Reflect or other software to either make a backup or clone the existing partition/drive.

Thank you, I am downloading Macrium Reflect.  It says it contains Microsoft winP components?  I went ahead and downloaded since I trust bleeping computer!

Make sure you create the Rescue Media in Macrium. Make sure all boxes on checked on the disk.

Yes, you do not want to clone. You want to create a complete disk image to your external drive. After the image is created you can double click the image file and it will mount to a virtual drive letter allowing you to explore the contents of the the image file. To unmount the image right click the drive letter of the virtual drive letter in Computer and select Eject.
