    Default Windows 10 Image of C Drive shows size of 0%

    Today, I have twice carried out imaging of my C Drive, ie using the one with my operating system (Windows 10) and programs. The first time I thought that I had interrupted the process, because the result in "Properties" showed size of 0%. However, I went through the process again, watched carefully the process and then was told that the image was successfully complete ......... however, same result, 0% size.

    Now, my theory, in place of expert advice, is that an image is there, just not showing any size, because the file type is different than the norm? When I go to to show the "Properties" of my N Drive, am told that the size is about 310 Gigs, which seems to indicate that the data is there? Still confused about how it is not read a few levels down? Am I deluded, or what ??

    PS - I also intend to do a further image of my C Drive, using Macrium Reflect, when I find enough clear information on the process .......... and enough courage.

    Found it, post 5 & 6, has links, https://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showth...148877-Ask-Leo

    or the original Video I made, showing installing, and creating an image, as well as mounting the image and opening ( to extract any files) https://streamable.com/gilwf

    If you install viboot, thats for mounting and running as a Virtual machine you need Windows Pro, as it uses hyper-V

    Thanks heaps, wainui, I have now made an image of my C Drive using Macrium. My SSD C Drive is only 148 Gigs, and the image is lesser at 93.8 Gigs, which I take is due to compression.

    Yep. On This Computer the C drive has 136GB used, the image is compressed to 90GB (round figures)
