Where is says "On a hard disk" does the drop down arrow on the right reveal any choices?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You must use an external hard disk drive or a separate partition to create the image on. You cannot use your system drive for the image.

If you want to use your system drive, then you should use the command recimg /createimage C:\Image to create an image of your operating system. But the image created this way is not a full image of your entire OS drive. If you want to use this command, then you must create a folder named Image ( or any other name to your liking ) first and then give the command from a command prompt with admin rights.

With this image, you can only do a refresh or reset of the OS with your installed programs and all, but not your personal files. They remain intact.

If your HDD fails, they are all gone.

Do you have the HDD partitioned? If not, that's your problem. It's pointless to put the backup on the same partition as Windows. It has to go on a separate partiton, separate HDD, or DVDs.
