    Sorry, I forgot to mention you need to use Diskpart to add the letter.

    OK.
    And how should I alter that partition?
    I've already seen what's on it.

    I was just giving you an option, not suggesting you alter anything.

    I still do not know what is causing the space error... maybe you will find something. You might as well go ahead and start using the third party imaging software you want. Perhaps it will work without problems.

    Alright.
    I'm gonna give it a try anyway for the sake of 8.1.

    I'll also try wbadmin.

    Thanks for all the help this far. Really appreciated.

    Solved by using Macrium Reflect.

    No errors s during backup.

    A bootable ISO/USB has also been created.
