I have a problem with windows system image backup. My OEM windows 8.1 was installed on normal HDD with mbr partition config. so i bought an SDD make an image back up from my drive c. and then use windows DVD to recover(install) the image on new SDD.
Now after i upgrade to windows 10 i learned that i could change mbr to GPT and use EFi boot instead on using old legacy boot option. Now after doing all these without reinstalling windows(cause I cannot go back to win 8.1 anymore)
I decided to make a image back from windows 10 so i can restore to it in future. The problem is every time windows tries to make an image, when it start to make an image from EFI partition it ran into this error : (the specified backup disk cannot be found) 0x807800c5
I had updated windows 7 home premium to windows 10 then when the update was complete I created a backup image of the whole system.... and saved in an external HD. then my fixed disk died, replaced by a new fixed HD I can not recover the backed up windows ten image from my external HD ... is that due that when replaced the new HD I am contrived to recover the system with windows 7 home premium and windows 7 do not recognize the backed image of windows 10?
I recently purchased a Lenovo 900 ultrabook, and proceeded to upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro (using a Windows 7 Ultimate product key). Now that I have done this the factory "restore" does not include my upgrade and I am concerned that I would lose it if I ever needed to restore.
So, I am trying to do a full system image backup to a flash drive, but Windows 10 says that the drive is not allowed for this. I can create the USB drive as a network share and get the backup to work using that method, but I don't really trust that it will work properly.
How to do a full system image backup to a USB drive in Windows 10 that you trust will work in the case a restore is needed?
I've not partitioned a hard drive on Windows 8/8.1. In fact, I've never partitioned a hard drive on Windows 7. The last time I partitioned a hard drive was Windows XP to dual-boot two operating systems. I'd like to partition the hard drive on my laptop in order to save a backup of my system onto it, as I don't have an external drive right now. Any detailed, step by step process to partition my hard drive and then back up my system onto it? I have 350GB of free space.
I made a thread here some time ago in trying to create a System Image (Sys Img) using a 3.0USB 1 TB Toshiba External HDD. My issue is it runs then stops with errors and creates blank folders in the ExtHDD.
Question; My computer had to be reformatted because of a lock out by a hacker, can I use a restore point that I made before the hack, to restore my files? The restore points and system image are on my back up drive , I restored a couple of files from it. and the folders are there but I do not want to screw things up, as I don't know what I am doing.
I have been trying to setup a scheduled backup (Windows 7 Backup and restore) on Windows 10. I want to include a system image of the C: drive as part of the back up and save it to the D: drive. However Windows wont let me save the image on the D: drive, I think because I moved the location of my user files to the D: drive to save space on my SSD.
Any way to override or workaround this without having to move my files back to the C: drive?
I want to create a system image of my primary drive (an SSD) on an external 230gb hard drive as backup for any incovenience.. The problem is my other drive (games,movies, photos, etc) is automatically checked as default because "required for Windows to run" among my primary drive and System Reserved 350MB partition. I cant uncheck its box.
My pc runs windows 10 It' s a custom built pc with: i7 4770k GeForce GTX 770 2GB 8gb RAM 230 gb of SSD (primary drive) with still 70gb of free space 1 Terabyte of Hard disk (secondary drive) 230 gb of external TrekStore drive (NFTS formatted)
Whenever I try to create a system image or run recimg I get error 12289 and the backup fails. System protection is turned on and maximum space used is set to 20%. I have no third party backup software installed and this is a real not virtual machine.
A couple of days ago I made a system image backup (there were no error messages that it was unsuccessful), now I need to restore it, I boot Windows 10 DVD, point to a network location and start the restore, but after an hour or so, at the end it errors with "0x80070057: Parameter is incorrect". After that Windows boots to diagnostic mode but fails to repair anything. Diskpart shows that the partition which used to be C is RAW, I also have an impression that the order of partitions is different (C was 3rd, after restore it seems to be 1st). I checked and I'm able to mount VHDX with C partition and access all files, chkdsk doesn't find any errors on it. It's a UEFI computer with GPT installation. Is there some way to restore it with some 3rd party tool, or manually? What can I do?
PS: there's a lot of clues on the internet about fixing similar problem when such error popups at the beginning of restore from a USB thumb drive. The solution is to unplug the thumb before starting so the restore doesn't get confused with the additional drive. It's not the case here, I'm not using USB thumb and I get the error at the end of restore.
Update: I managed to restore an older backup of Windows 8.1 from before upgrade to Windows 10. I used Windows 8.1 DVD for the restore.
The difference between an old image and the new one is that after upgrade to Windows 10 I removed an optical drive and replaced it with a SSD which I was using for page file and ReadyBoost. Also, Windows 8.1 had 3 partitions, while after upgrade to Windows 10 I noticed that there's some additional 4th partition (so there were 2 restore or EFI partitions, not sure which), but the backup image of Windows 10 still consists of 3 VHDX files. The image of Windows 10 isn't an image made from a scratch - when I was setting up the backup I simply pointed to the old 8.1 image and Windows 10 was making its images on top of the old one (I wanted it to backup the differences only, to avoid huge transfer of the whole drive).
Anyway, as I already stated I'm sure that VHDX of Windows 10 isn't corrupted. It's probably some problem with XML metadata so the restore procedure can't recreate proper partition layout corresponding with images, or something. A
I created system image backup file at least once a week. I did one yesterday, and today I needed to run it to restore my system. To my horror, I cannot find way to run it. I ran system image backup restore multiple times. I know how to do it...... until today. Today, by the time I clicked Troubleshoot option, there is no Advanced Options to choose from. Instead it sent me to Startup Settings option where I could go to safe mode etc,
I ended up running a system restore. Good thing I do create restore point religiously. But, after system restore, I still have the same problem.......... cannot restore image by using system image backup.
adding............... I went to my other laptop running Win 10 Pro, I had no trouble running system image restore.
after upgrading from Win7 Ultimate with Office 2007 to Won10 pro, every time I star Excel or Word or PowerPoint the Windows Installer screen appears and then asks for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition.ENU disk.
I have an unallocated 1Mb partition as the first partition (according to Easus) on my laptop drive, in addition to the recommended reserved, system and EFI partitions. Could this extraneous partition be the reason for my inability to restore from an image backup? (Restores fail after making my laptop unbootable)...
My wife's Samsung laptop gets a failure whenever trying to do an image backup. Actually, this has been happening for quite a while - even before she installed Windows 10 when she had W7. I was hoping that the problem would go away with W10 but it hasn't. Backup runs almost to the end and then fails with the attached message. The message says to run dskchk on both her drive and on the backup drive which I did. No problems were found. (I backup my desktop on that drive all the time with no problems.) I tried backing it up on another external drive that also tests good but got the same error message.
I Created an image backup using Windows 10. I burned the repair CD. I booted from cd. Options are most recent backup [but it only shows D:, the factory backup partition]. No browse capability. Other option does not let me browse to the folder the system created, "F:WindowsImageBackup". How do I restore from this image instead of the factory image?
I am now getting a new error. The error i am now getting is error C1420127 windows 10 now installs almost but towards the end it stops and says error and then when i go to look at it that is what the error is.
My friend updated to windows 10. And now she can't sign in. It gets to the login screen and just stops there. Tried disconnecting from power source (including removing battery), then putting it back. Still nothing. The keyboard is un responsive.
