  1. Windows 10 system image create gets stuck


    I have Windows 10 running on a Toshiba laptop. I create a system image every week. When I tried to this yesterday, it got stuck on 'preparing to create system image'. I tried to cancel it, but it would not, so I had to kill the whole program. Now if I try to run it again it gives a message 'System image create running - please wait until it completes'. How can I overcome this to restart the system image creation.

    :)

  2. Help, cant create windows image

    Hello there, @fullinfusion!

    It seems like some sort of an OS confusion has happened with your secondary WD Black and I'm sorry to hear about that. *Frown Windows 10 system image create gets stuck :(
    Maybe re-formatting it would help indeed as the community already mentioned. I'd suggest to take a look at this step-by-step how to partition and format an HDD: http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=PYCoid
    Keep in mind that this will wipe clean the drive, so you should backup all important data from the drive somewhere else.
    I noticed from the screenshots that your HDD appears as Disk 0, this means that it's plugged in the primary SATA port where the SSD (as an OS drive) should be. Actually it is possible that because of this Windows cannot create the image there. Swap the ports of the SSD and the HDD, this might help as well.

    Keep me posted. Hope this helped! *Smile Windows 10 system image create gets stuck :)

    Help, cant create windows image

    Use Windows AIK and maybe a little command line action. *Toast :toast:

    Edit: I should add there's quite a few steps, but there are guides that explain this with less detail to make it easier out there. It takes a little time, but you'll have a good image. Don't worry about cleaning it up if you're happy with it since you aren't creating a deployment image for other workstations.

    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.

    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.
