    W10 Disk Image Utility Reports Error After Image Creation.


    I installed the 32 bit version of W10 on an old Acer laptop to get back up to speed with developments, and one of the first questions or issues that cropped up is when using W10's disk image utility to make a system image. I deliberately wished to place the image on a separate partition on the single HDD in use and W10 lists the partition as available but understandably doesn't recommend it because its on the same HDD as the OS. That said it still offers the location for use and allows the creation of the backup. All goes well until the last percentage point on the progress bar when it reports the following error saying the shadow copy is on another volume. If I check the actual location where I wanted the backup to be made (the partition on the main HDD) I find it is there, however, exiting and restarting the Disk Image utility then brings a message that no backups have been found. The backup file that is viewable in explorer is of the expected size (the free space is down by the expected amount) and so it appears to be 'real' but W10 can't see it.

    Making a backup to plugged in USB drive has no such problem and is error free .

  2. Using SIM (System Image Manager) from ADK 10.0.10240.16384 and mounting INSTALL.WIM error

    I used the MS Media Creation Tool to download my copy of W10. I downloaded an ISO. I've used this ISO to install W10.

    I then mounted the above ISO and extracted SOURCES\INSTALL.WIM to a folder on my hard disk.

    I then downloaded the MS ADK - version 10.0.10240.16384 and installed it. It supposedly is the latest.

    I ran SIM (System Image Manager) to create an automation file for use with SYSPREP, and attempted to load the above extracted INSTALL.WIM that was provided by MS. I get an error "an attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format."

    When will this bug be fixed. Currently W10 cannot be SYSPREP'd as automation XML files can't be created using MS supplied utilities.

    Is there a patch for the ADK/SIM? Any time lines for fixing this

  3. System Image too large / high disk utilization

    Running W10 on an i7 Alienware. System image taking up taking up 525+Gb which after actual working files leaves only about 45Gb free on drive. Change System Image Settings button is greyed out even though I'm logged on as administrator. Disk cleanup
    says it could recover another 10Gb but just hangs. Task Manager performance almost always shows disk being used 96-100% of the time. Neither full McAfee or any of the freebie malware I tried finds any virus. Any solution to this high disk utilization and
    System image taking up around 70% of the hard disc?
