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)

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?

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?
