I am setting up a new PC for a non technical user who lives several hundred miles from me. I want to use Win 7 backup for the backup as I believe it is more widely used and should be better supported than the ap that comes with My Book.
To avoid confusion regarding which backup program was used, I reformatted the MyBook drive to wipe it clean. It is only to be used as an auxillary drive.
I then tried to create a baseline disk image file of the c: drive on the mybook drive. Got an error that there was insufficient space on the MyBook drive. There is about 40GB used on c:, the MyBook is 500GB and empty. Can anyone make sense out of this.
