I bought an HCL pc with "WINDOWS XP MEDIACENTRE EDITION", about 3 months ago. It has a preloaded "UNISTALL'S CRASH PROOF RECOVERY TOOL". The tool never completes its image taking function. All time, it starts copying the O/S, an error message follows indicating "Can not take O/S non distructistructive image,the hidden partition free space is less than 300 mb". I often recieve an error message after I turn on my computer indicating, "You are running out of disc space on local drive E:". My service engeneer says that low disc space at E: drive is the resion for all this problem but he did not give any solution for it. I don't understand the meaning of this message because when I want to use the disc cleanup wizard, I see the total used space on the disc to be 0 mb. Further, I never saved any document of mine to the E: drive. I allways use the C: drive for all of my works. My hard disc has three partitions C:,D: and E:.One more thing to be noted is that, I am not able allways to see the E: drive in "MY COMPUTER", sometimes it looks here and sometimes not. PLEASE GIVE ANY SOLUTION TO MY PROBLEMS.

some questions to understand your problem....what is the size of the partition E. is it FAT or NTFS?. And who made that partition? you or HCL?

Ok first of all, are the C: and E: partitions of the same size? Coz if E: is smaller, then the software is bound to give an error.

FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR GIVING ATTANTION TO MY PROBLEM.
The size of E partition is 10 GB and it is FAT32. The partition is made by HCL.
The size of D partition is also 10 GB and the rest is C partition out of the total 80 GB hard disc.
My computer had preloaded softwares and I never performed any formatting to the hard disc.

fat32 may be the culprit...fat32 does not support a single file over 4 GB.if you dont have any data on drive E try formating drive E to NTFS and restart and try the backup again..... but do it at your own risk!!
