    Hi All,

    I am attempting to create an image of my Windows XP boot drive and restore that image on to a new bigger hard drive and then boot off that new drive. I was having the error 0x80 occur while making the image file, so I followed the steps below to attempt to copy it directly to the new drive.

    I am attempting to backup my 18GB C: drive to an empty 700GB F: drive.

    The C: drive has 1.13GB free. I have checked this drive for errors using the Error-checking tool in Windows. There isn't enough space to defrag the drive. This drive is an ultra160 SCSI hard drive.

    The 700GB was initiated and formatted in Windows as a 700GB primary partition. This drive is a SATA drive.

    Booting from the Paragon Drive Backup Boot Disk:
    I select "Create Image of Hard Disk" with the following options:
    HDD RAW
    Set Image Name Auto
    Do Not Enable Image Splitting
    Control Archive Integrity
    Do not skip OS Aux Files
    Normal Compression level

    Apply Changes.

    The Progress Information Screen shows:
    Backup Partition or Disk.
    Approx Achive size will be 13245 MB
    Backup Disk 1 to File: blah blah blah
    Backup Primary Partition 0 (Disk1) to File: blah blah blah
    Getting Clusters Bitmap
    Data Writing

    (blah blah blah) is a file on the empty 700GB F: drive)

    Then an error window with an Error 0x80 occurs.
    What is going on? Why is this happening? Am I doing everything correctly?

    The C: drive has 1.13GB free. I have checked this drive for errors using the Error-checking tool in Windows. There isn't enough space to defrag the drive. This drive is an ultra160 SCSI hard drive.

    Problem 2:
    When I try to copy the drive using partition...the system won't boot on the copied drive. The computer complains of a missing NT boot loader file.
    What's wrong in this case?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Eagle3300,

    There is a problem with HDD Raw Processing, please turn it off and try it again, if you need raw processing use Partition Raw Processing instead (it has the same functionality). Also, you are backing up disk 1, not disk 0 correct?

    As far as problem #2 goes, if it is disk 1 that is your C drive the MBR was probably not copied, (the MBR is located on the drive the BIOS is pointed to boot from, generally disk 0) you can use the recovery CD's boot corrector to rebuild it, which should allow it to boot.

    Matt,
    I'll get to all of your questions at the end. I have retried this thing at least 10 times with no luck. It takes a while for each attempt, thus my delay in responding. My appologies.

    Here are all the gory/bloody details:

    From cold boot from Paragon Drive Backup Boot Disk:
    Bios boot takes 50 seconds to complete.
    Paragon Drive Backup takes 2 minutes to start the application menu.
    Starting Drive Backup takes 10 minutes to bring up Drive Backup application.

    ATTEMPT #1 - Try creating image of existing boot drive (Hard Disk 1):
    General Tab > Settings
    General
    Enable Data Loss Protection
    Disable 64K Clusters for Fat16
    Ask volume label to delete partition
    Do not ask confirmation when converting Fat16 to FAT32
    User
    Do not use one-based disks/partitions numeration
    Do not close progress dialog automatically
    Virtual Operations
    Smart Mode
    General Copy/Backup
    No Partition raw process
    No Hdd Raw process
    Do not hide new primary partition after copy/restore
    Do not skip OS Auxiliary files
    Backup Image
    Control archive integrity
    Compression level normal

    Do not perform SID changing after disk copy
    Do not perform SID changing after partition copy
    Auto SID changer mode

    Hard Disk
    Create an Image of Hard Disk (hard disk 1, NTFS, C drive)
    Advanced
    Control archive integrity
    Do not partition raw process
    Do not HDD raw process
    Do not skip OS auxiliary files
    Set image names automatically
    Disable image splitting
    Disable password Protection
    General
    Normal compression Level
    Hard disk
    Hard disk (not MBR nor First track)
    Backup Destination
    XP Backups

    Apply
    Approximate archive size will be 13420Mb
    Backup Disk 1 to file: blah
    Backup Primary partition 0 (disk 1) to file: blah
    (blah is on XP Backups - Disk 3)
    Getting clusters bitmap…
    Data writing…
    Error: 0x80



    ATTEMPT #2 - Hard Drive Copy :
    General Tab > Settings
    General

    Data blocks calculating…
    Quick Data moving …
    Modifying drive /dev/sda0 on hard disk 2
    Checking parameters…
    Checking files and directories…
    Rebuilding partitions info…
    All operations have been finished

    Shutdown computer.
    Disconnected original C drive.
    Rebooted computer
    Configured BIOS to boot off of newly created drive.
    Rebooted computer.
    NTLDR is missing
    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.

    Configured computer to reboot on original C drive with new C drive connected.
    Rebooted computer.
    Checkdsk ran automatically on J:
    Deleted a whole bunch of orphan file record segments
    Corrected errors in a whole bunch of indexes for a whole bunch of files.

    Reboot computer.
    Configure to boot off of new C drive
    System32\drivers\pci.sys is missing. (NTLDR was found)
    Followed instructions to do a repair install of windows.

    Booted off of windows cd – repair option
    Expand g:\i386\pci.sy_
    Restarted system
    System still wouldn’t boot.

    Notes:
    Each attempt at creating an image resulted in an error 0x80.
    Each attempt at a direct disk copy resulted in a non-bootable mess. The files appeared to be on the disk but the disk wouldn't boot.

    Questions:
    Is it normal for the Drive Backup application to take 10 minutes to start from the Drive Backup front screen?

    Why is Drive Backup failing with error 0x80 when attempting to make an Image?

    Why is Drive Backup failing to correctly make a copy on another disk?

    Responses:
    In the attempt that you are asking about, yes I was backing up disk 1.
    Perhaps I should ask what is HDD Raw Processing? How does that vary from Partition Raw Processing? How does that differ from what I did on these last couple of attempts?

    When you perform a disk copy, shouldn't the MBR be included in the clone? The whole intent was to take an image of my 99.9% full C drive and put the image on a bigger hard drive. Swap out the drives, boot from the newly created C drive , and move on to the project at hand.

    Otherwise, I have to install the operating system on the new drive, apply the 50 bazillian patches, reload the applications, and find/copy my data. That's two weeks that I don't have.

    Thank you for your help.
    Dan
