  1. Can not recover with from a System Image Backup


    Story: I have 6 Windows 10 systems. The drive in my G60 laptop just crashed out completely and while the three partitions can be seen in another PC neither the size nor any other information is available - it's trashed. It's 10 Home upgraded from Windows 7 back in the free upgrade days - accordingly to the WinKeyfinder key file it's 64 bit which ties to what I know. I'd like to get it back since it has my Photoshop and other files. Somehow my HP G60 laptop wasn't in my regular manual system image routine to back to an external USB drive so I don't have a current backup. I do have a backup from 6/19/2017. I have one system which has Oracle VM Virtual Box and I even made a VDI file from the main partition 2017 VHDX backup using VBoxManager in DOS. Of course it crashed when I tried to restore it but I know that the main file is OK. Using a repair disk from either 1/19/2018 or 6/2019 the 2017 backup can't be seen on the USB drive even though other backups are. Tools said the drive was clean after I scanned it and I even copied the entire back up to another USB drive without a problem.

    So I have a 64 bit repair disk and a 64 bit backup but I can't recover. Most of my professional tools went with the IT support business when I retired to Florida so I don't have anything special to use. Thoughts on my next steps other than just give up and reinstall the O/S and any applications I still have the media for?

    :)

  3. Creating a System Image backup - keeps looping

    Hi,

    Thank you for giving us an opportunity to assist you with the query.

    I understand the inconvenience caused, now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

    The system image is exactly like the mirrored copy of the Operating System which contains the configuration of the Operating System. When you create backup system image your windows 10 comes back to the same position at when the image was created earlier.

    As an initial step, I suggest you to make sure that the services required for backup to run successfully is enabled. Refer to these steps:


    • Press Windows + R
      keys, type services.msc and press Enter.

    • In the services window, locate the services
      File history service
      and the Volume shadow copy service and check if they are running.

    • If they are not running, right-click and select
      Start to manually start the service.

    • Check if you are able to create a backup now.
    Step 1: I suggest you to follow the steps from the below article created by

    Andre Da Costa
    and check if it helps.

    How to: Create a system image in Windows 10

    How to: Create a system image in Windows 10

    Step 2: If the issue still persists, I suggest you to boot the computer in a clean boot state and then check.

    Booting the computer in a clean boot state can reduce software conflicts and help identify the root cause of the issue. You can refer to this article for more information:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: After troubleshooting, reset the computer to start as usual. Refer to the step
    How to set the computer to start as usual after clean boot troubleshooting under more information.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know the status, we are glad to assist you further.
