Rotate on Count Results in Excessively Large Image

Postby RogueTrader » Sat Jun 21, 2014 6:37 am

I've been using the Rotate on Count batch file (available from Terabyte site) for some weeks now. Every 7 days, a new base image is generated, and daily differentials for the next 6 days. The results have been quite satisfactory.

Recently however, when doing the base image, an excessively large image file is being generated. My base files run about 100GB, but this image was up to 600GB and rising before I cancelled it. It happened again the next day, same scenario.

Has anyone encountered this, or possibly have a clue as to how to correct the situation?

Thanks

I think I see what is going on now. Somehow, Disk 0 and Disk 1 flip-flopped identities...so that the script was directing that the backup drive be imaged. And that makes it large. I have an eSATA backup, and to be recognized, it has to be seen during bootup. I just need to find a reliable way to make sure it doesn't horn in in the Disk 0 identification.

Use the #sig or {guid} option on the /d command.

Do you have the BIOS Boot Menu set so the HD boots before the UFD? You access the UFD from the Boot Menu? If so, use the second script and leave the UFD plugged in. After the restore completes Windows will boot.
