I heard about the Windows 10 Creator's update and the fact it's going to deployed to everyone's computers whether we like it or not. After my awful experience with the Anniversary update...I'm not too keen on the idea. Seems like my Windows 10 Pro doesn't have the option to defer feature updates, so I decided to try and create a system image. And failed, multiple times.
The error message is always the same:
The backup failed. Windows Backup encountered an error when writing data to the backup target. (0x80780166) Additional information: Incorrect function. (0x80070001)
^for those of you who can't see the image/are on mobile.
I have done quite a bit of searching on the error and it seems like a lot of people have had this problem but no solution other than resetting your PC, and Microsoft hasn't really offered much help with it either.
I had a similar problem with a system image on Windows 7 before I decided to update, which was solved using Tweaking.com.
So I ran Tweaking.com with the same settings as last time, but I still got this error. Or at least I think it was the same settings as last time...it was whatever was saved from the previous run from the looks of it.
For reference, the external disk I'm backing up to looks to be in good health (ran a Chkdsk and there were no bad blocks or errors or anything), and has sufficient space. It is a 1TB Seagate Backup+ for Mac, which I partitioned into 566Gb HFS+, 364Gb NTFS. I had two existing system images on the disk, and had to erase one to ensure I had enough space, so I haven't had this issue with the disk before and I have been able to save system images to it in the past.
The version of Windows 10 Pro I'm using is the original build, Build 1511, on a Boot Camped Mac, if that makes any difference.
Any help would be much appreciated!
