What do you mean, not enough free space?
I have a 1TB external Seagate, plug & play. My Asus hard drive is 750GB. I figured 1TB would be plenty to make a system image.
So, when I tried I got this message:
Not enought disk space to create the volume shadow on the storage location. Make sure that for all volumes to be backed up, the min required disk space for shadow copy creation is available. This applies to both the backup storage destination and volumes included in the backup. Min requirment: For volume less than 500 megabytes, the min is 50 meg free space. For volume more than 500 megabytes, the min is 320 megabyes free space. Recommended: At least 1 gig free space on each volume if volume size is more that 1 gig.
The auto image backup (Win8) wanted to backup 3 drives (I could not select what I wanted)
1) C drive
2) EFI sys partition
It indicated that backup could take 61 GB disk space.
Any idea why all this won't fit on a hard drive much larger than my computer drive?
