Well I want to back my computer up for the upcoming release of windows 7. I am doing a fresh reformat and install when it releases and want to back this machine up. Using the built in utility and my WD 250gb My Passport. It says there isn't enough space on the disk?! The back up size says 138.2gb and this is in NTFS format. What could be the problems? Should I try and get another internal drive and run raid or should I try to get a different external for this job?
I started with 245GB and after running back up utility it says there is a 138gb back up file on there. and there is only 92gb left on the drive. BUT the to visible files on there are like 580bytes and 0 bytes and those are computer and MediaID.bin.
If this helps any, I posted some screen shots of what is going on.
