Windows 10 Windows 10 System Image help needed


Extraordinary Member
Every time I try to make a system image in Windows 10 Pro x64 I get the following error message. Error code 0x807080151 along with error code0x80070020 at the bottom of the same page. Here's a screenshot of it.Shadow Copy, etc. is on/started. I've tried stopping them & restarting them. Also ran checkdisk and sfc /scannow. Nothing found.

What security apps you running brkkab? Try turning them off and see if it helps any.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2015. It's found no threats.

I'm wondering if it's something to do with using FileHistory, too. I don't know why it would be, as I'm only trying to do a system image, not use the full blown Windows 7 Backup for a image and a backup of document's, etc..
It's also, not the Insider Preview version of Windows 10.

I always make my images from the Acronis boot disk. Then nothing is running or updating in the background to cause problems.

You are trying to do a backup of a VM? I have no experience with VM, but where is the backup location in relation to the VM?

I don't know what's causing the problem, but I've been using EaseUS TODO backup and recovery Free, with good results.
I've made 22 backups and restored 7 times since I started using Windows 10.

Best free backup software for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, etc - EaseUS Todo Backup Free

So if you want to get a image made you could give it a try.

It makes it's own recovery disk in either Linux or WindowsPE format and it literally only takes a couple of clicks to make a backup.

It's not a VM.

**SOLVED** Iolo System Mechanic Standard's created power plans were the culprit. I disabled them, switched my pc to Windows' High Performance plan and System Image is working now. I forgot all about checking that one before I posted this.
