Copy and Restore fails "At the end of something"

I have a 0.5 GB Vista64 boot disk (#3) that I am attempting to copy or restore to a 1 GB disk (#0).  When I use disk copy, it fails at 99% with "At the end of something".  When I do a restore, it fails at 99% with "At the end of something".  The full error messages and screen sample are below.  The backup works fine and I've verified recovery points.  After the error, I reboot and I can view the files on the drive without issue.  It appears to be ok, but why the errors?

I tried booting with the SRD, backing up, and restoring.  I used DiskPart to Clean drive #0 before copying or restoring.  Both drives are on the same controller.  They are different manufacturers: #3 is Hitachi, #0 is Seagate.  I ran SeaTools tests on disk #0 to make sure it was reliable.  I've run chkdsk and scanned for viruses on disk #3.  I tried restoring with a drive letter and "none" as the drive letter.  I tried with and without checking for system errors.  I tried with and without resizing the drive.

Any help will be appreciated because I'm "at the end of something"!

From windows event log...

Error EC8F17B3: Cannot complete copying of  (C:\) drive.

Error EC8F0409: Cannot copy source drive to destination location.

Error EA390013: At end of something. (UMI:V-281-3215-6067)

gomer,

How much Free Space is in your C: drive?

You mentioned creating backup images. Do the images Verify OK?

Thanks redk9258.  I tried not selecting "resize" option and same results.

Thanks Brian_K. 

141 GB free of 465 GB.  I've read in posts that 15% should be enough.

Yup, the images Verify ok.

gomer,

I can't find it at present but there is a link to download the Ghost 14 SRD. There is a similar issue to yours where the Ghost 14 CD works to restore an image but the Ghost 15 CD doesn't. It's worth a try with the image you have already created.

Anyone have the download link?

I wonder what would happen if you did not check 'Resize drive to fill unallocated space" and then just used DiskPart or Disk Management to expand the partition?
