    Windows System Image Backup fails!

    Hello everyone I'm having a problem with Windows System Image Backup just when I try to do a image backup it will say that it has failed and suggest to do a disk check. I've searched and some users say to use third party backup programs should I run the disk check first or just go with a different backup tool.

    Hello Timothy,

    You certainly could use a 3rd party program like the free Macrium Reflect instead if you like.

    It wouldn't hurt to run the disk check to see what the issue may be though.

    Hope this helps,
