Save Contents to Image on Windows 10   10 August 2016, 00:49

Had a little trouble with this feature on Windows 10.
From what I can tell, setting 'Mount as Removable' allows 'Save Contents to Image' and 'Save contents to associated image every, min' to work.

Otherwise, there's an error like can't save file cause another process has a lock on it. You'll see this error when you highlight the drive and click 'Save disck contents to image' on the apps toolbar. I didn't see this error being logged to the event log.

Perhaps the OS or, more likely, an antivirus product attempt to lock the image file for scanning? Are you saying the error doesn't occur if you tick 'Mount as removable'?

yes... I have now been running for 2 days and the image has been saving fine every 60 minutes.
I have not tried the scenario of adding a file, rebooting, and seeing if file is still there after the drive has restored.

I guess since you found a workaround, we can consider this issue resolved. It's hard to say though why this happens with a non-removable drive only.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
