So, I went to go create a system image of my SSD onto my external HDD and found out that I would need 1TB of free HDD space to back up. My SSD is only 120GB so I went ahead and checked it out and found out it was also claiming that one of my WD 1TB drives was being included in the system image. So I did some looking around and everything I've come across relies only on the SSD, not the HDD. System protection relies on the SSD, EasyBCD as well as the default Windows "Startup and Recovery" boot settings all rely on the SSD. The page file relies on the SSD. The only thing I found was that in "Environment Variables", the part with "System Variables" contained a variable on the HDD which happened to be virtualbox, so I uninstalled it, restarted and to no avail. The HDD is no longer in the Variables but the backup still claims it's required for the system image. Hell, even in Disk Management, the SSD is regarded as pretty much everything (System boot, page file, Crash Dump) The hard drives just have the messages of which partition is the primary one etc. (Only one partition anyway) I'm not really sure what other information is needed but I'm seriously puzzled as to why the HDD is needed for the system. Anyone have any clue, at all? PS. Specs are in sig!
