      Note that this particular post is specifically about the TeraByte Disk Image Backup and Restore Suite.
      This software is not free but some Loungers are known to use it. Loungers should note that the suite is now version 3.28 (since April 6 2019). As usual, it includes Image for Windows, Image for Linux, and Image for DOS.
      The versions of BootIt Bare Metal and BootIt UEFI remain unchanged since 17 March. Interested parties can check out TeraByte Unlimited for details.

      I downloaded and installed it today.

      Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

      I tried to use MS imaging on a brand new 2 TB drive and I keep getting this message. (See attached image)

      Backup

      any thoughts?

      You probably have a small ancillary partition. Open Disk Management and check the partition sizes (do not change anything).

      Use a 3rd party app instead – Aomei, EaseUS, Paragon, Macrium etc.

      cheers, Paul

      I might run CHKDSK (check disk) on both drives.

      Take a peek at this for insight.

      Update:
      Latest version is now 3.31 of the TeraByte Disk Image Backup and Restore Suite (June 24).
      The BootIt Collection is 1.10/1.58 and the TBOSDT Suite is version 1.90.

      I was distracted a lot this month so I only upgraded the suite yesterday and have just now imaged my Windows 10 version 1903 (build 18362.239).
      Both the suite and Windows 10 seem to be OK.
