Create a system image–failure 0x80780119
I just recently got my Dell Latitude 10 Tablet and the first thing that I wanted to do was to create a system image before dinking with it.
Unfortunately, when It tried to run the backup I received the following error:
This is the first time that I have run across this error so initially I didn’t know what to do. I took a search on Google and found quite a number of people reporting it, but not a rock solid way to resolve it.
I initially took a look at the storage manager in the device manager. I see right away that there is one partition of 500 MB is size.
I wasn’t able to determine the amount of free space through the device manager. Well after some searching I did find several people running into a similar issue and they shrunk the partition under the 500 MB limit to get by the error.
I wasn’t able to make any changes to these partitions in the Device Manager, so I had to find another way. After some additional searching I found a tool called MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition (here), a free utility that allows you to edit any partitions. A very small download, small footprint, and very easy to use.
I chose to edit the partition and shrinking it from 500 to 492 and after a reboot I was able to run the native Windows System Image Backup. #FTW
Another option would be to use DiskPart to shrink the partition.
