I am trying to create a system image backup (not sure of the terminology) for my Windows 7 laptop before updating it to Windows 10. I have a Seagate 1 TB backup drive and just over 500GB on the laptop. I used the windows backup and chose the create a system image on the left. Everything seemed to be OK (this time, I am making this short!) but at the end it said The backup failed the bar was all red, below it said: The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)
I tried to run it again and it said not enough room on selected drive. When I checked the Seagate there is a file WindowsImageBackup and it's size is just less then the 500GB the laptop has. Is there a way to verify the backup? Or should I delete and start again?
I am getting frustrated. I don't really like Windows 10 but know I need to upgrade from 7 for safety and because I am having a lot of trouble with the 2016 edition of Quicken, hoping Windows 10 will solve some of it.
