I'm attempting to create a Windows 7 System Image on my Toshiba Satellite L300 from the C drive to the DVD drive on WinData DVD-R dvds. I get the following error message.
"The operation failed due to a device error encountered with either the source or the destination. If the source or destination volume is on a disk, run CHKDSK /R on the source or destination volume, and then retry the operation. (0x8078012D)
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. (0x8007045D)"
I do have administrative rights when I am executing the files... though, when I do this (CHKDSK /R)- it indicates its in use by another process... It will be checked the next time it is started..
I have attempted utilization of about 6 DVDs and one was a DVD+ so, I do not believe it is the DVDs I am using. Im thinking something must be corrupt and I even purchased FIXIT and it is not doing it...
I would like to create a new system image as I have added additional programs to the computer and I typically attempt to do a 'virgin' image before I add back m data... I keep all my data in my profile. and copy it to an external USB... then I take my previous system image - add the programs... do another system image and restore my data from the usb... so is my previous image bad?
Many thanks for your help and assistance. I didn't know whether to find a forum for windows or for Hardware... I will even request someone (remote assist)to look at my system - but I have a verrrrrry slow internet connection. Thanks again.
On OEM machines, as i assume your Toshiba is. There should be a factory supplied program to create these discs. They backup all your default factory data, usually 4 dvds worth. If you do not have that installed,
When I purchased it; I got XP... then - I got 7-Ultimate to learn that for work and have been using that... so, I am using my 7 system image.
The chkdsk utility did find 2 files:
As being bad on 2 different sectors... thus far, the new image creation is going well. It took awhile for the chkdsk to complete. I'm crossing my fingers.
