Well, the enclosed was working as well as any last time I looked. It probably copies some unneeded files, I've been trying all sorts of stuff trying to get VSS working.

Now the UAC Restoring mistake is away.
But the Backup mistake is there still.
How can I make vss work?

As far as anyone knows, you can't. Maybe the future will be different, but I don't have any ideas of how to try. I've tried everything I can think of. Repeating what I wrote in another topic:

DriveImage XML sort of works under VistaPE. It does not work well with NTFS partitions.

Vista (and VistaPE) uses Transactional NTFS (TxF). The significance is that TxF keeps a file open on every NTFS partition it finds. So DriveImage XML can never lock an NTFS partition under any flavor of Vista. It has to make a shadow copy using Volume Shadow Snapshot (VSS). But nobody has figured out how to get VSS working in VistaPE. (I suspect that it may be some really fundamental issue, not just missing files or registry keys.) But right now it is not possible to use DriveImage XML to make a backup copy of an NTFS partition under VistaPE unless you say OK to the "You can still continue but the backup image might be damaged" warning message. I have no idea how likely that is to produce a useful backup. I suspect it would be useful if the partition is not being used by other programs, but I have not made any tests.

Luckily, you seldom need to back up from VistaPE; you can do your backup from a working Vista system. You need DriveImage XML to restore a backup to a system that isn't working any more. You can do that under VistaPE, I've done it, but it requires a trick.

Since VistaPE TxF keeps a file open on every NTFS partition, DriveImage XML cannot restore an image to an NTFS partition. You must use an appropriate tool to destroy the partition and re-create it as a FAT32 partition. Then DriveImage XML can restore the NTFS backup to the FAT32 partition, changing it to NTFS in the process.

I haven't tested manipulating FAT32 partitions with DriveImage XML under VistaPE, but I suspect it will work as long as the partition is lockable (not being actively used by other programs).

JonF:
Yes, Backup I will do in my "real" Vista.
About the trick:
I would try it to create a partition with diskpart, but there I can only create FAT32 until 32GB.
So I thought: Is it needed to format the partition, to restore with DriveImage XML.
Can I not restore with DIX a Image to a unformat partition?
Has anybody tried this yet?
If not, I will try this in Virtualbox.

Thank you all!

No, you can not. DriveImage XML only restores to a partition that has a drive letter, which requires format. There are some free tools available to mess with partitions ... I'm not familiar with them.

Gives me an idea of how to get VSS working.

You only must create a partition, but not format.

Yes.

DriveimageXL backups (and thus restores) a volume, not an entire hard disk.

It skips the MBR and hidden sectors.

You need another utility to backup the MBR:
http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=21679

A GUI tool can be HDhacker:
http://dimio.altervista.org/eng/

If you want to automate the making of the partition on a new drive you can use my MBRBATCH:
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=3191
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=5000

But using tools capable of doing that internally may be better, besides partition saving and selfimage, there are more listed here:

I think, if you use RAW Mode in DriveImage XML all will be copy, even unused sectors.
This disk you restore to will partitioned as well as the other and will be probably active.
About MBR I don't know.

NO.

Last time I checked DriveimageXML made images out of volumes (read drive letters if you prefer) thus NOT saving the MBR (that contains the partition table) and subsequent hidden sectors.(i.e. usually the first 63 sectors on the drive, not on the volume)

An image can be a RAW image or skip unused sectors (unused sectors are within the filesystem, hidden sectors are outside it), but the first sector will always be a bootsector, no MBR, no partitions data available in the saved image.

A modern hard disk is usually having a CHS geometry of nx255x63, where the first sector is the MBR and contains the partition table, then follow 62 more hidden sectors and the bootsector of first partition (first sector of the volume) if the first partition is a Primary one (99.99% of cases) . if it's an extended partition, the 64th sector is the EPBR, and the bootsector of the partition is further on.
Check this:
http://www.ranish.com/part/primer.htm

An image made with DriveimageXML (an image of the first partition, of course) starts from it's bootsector.

Thus there is no need to format, but the partition must be created, in old "DOS" terminology, the target drive for restoring should be FDISKed, but there is no need for it to be FORMATted.

I use driveimage xml only for backup.
If my system is crashed I'll start VistaPE, with diskpart delete the partition and then I will create the partition again and then I restore my image with driveImage XML.

This is possible, isn't it?

Yes, it is. :)

But the resulting drive may (or may not) have the same size or beginning for the partitions, unless you use exactly the same method for creating the original partition (or, of course, if you have just one BIG partition spanning all the drive it will work, but that is not - believe me - the proper way to setup a system).

Backing up the MBR too (or at least the partition tables within it) and if logical partitions are used the EPBR's, allows for having the restored system a clone of the original saved one.

OK
I have 2 partitions a system and a recovery partition.
I would then only delete c and then create a new partition out of the free space.
The new partition would then be as big as the old partition and it should work.

Thanks

I think there you are wrong.
You only must create a partition, but not format.

By gosh you are correct! My mistake.
