Brian,

Ran the valuation, it was very fast (12 min) and it was successful.   
IFD  must use a lot of compression as the image file was only about 75 GB 
My C:/ drive is about 215GB. But thats OK as I will have room to save a few extra back ups.

Bill.

Bill,

Was that 12 minutes for the backup plus validation?

The pagefile and hibernation file aren't backed up by imaging apps and with 64 GB RAM and Win7 your files are probably huge. What are the sizes of these two files?

That was 12 min for the validation to run.
I'll have to check those other files Monday.

Brian,

The page file is 65475 MB, that's what it's set at.
Never gave the page file much thought.
With that much ram, do I need a page file?
In regards to the hibernation file, I haven't
figured that one out yet.

Bill.

Bill, to see both files...

Folder Options
View tab
dot in Show hidden files, folders and drives
remove the tick from Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

Look in C: drive root for the files.
pagefile.sys
hiberfil.sys

put the tick back in Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

You should have a pagefile but 2 GB should be enough.

Win7 assigns a pagefile 1 to 1.5 times the amount of RAM.

Win10 assigns a pagefile about 1/6 times the amount of RAM.

Big difference.

I don't think that is a fixed ratio. I have been working with an ASUS LapTop with 2 GB RAM and a pagefile of 1.125 GB > a ratio of 0.5625. My own Toshiba with 8 GB RAM has a pagefile of 1.75 GB > a ratio of 0.21875. It seems like the more RAM the lower the ratio.

Both also have a swapfile of 16 MB. Does anyone know for what?

Bill,

Thanks. That 117 GB is not backed up by default so your backup image file size is appropriate.

Do you use hibernation? I turn mine off with (Admin command prompt)...

powercfg -h off

You can turn it back on with...

powercfg -h on

Brian,

I set the page file to custom size.
2048 MB min
2048 MB max.

I don't use hibernation, but you say it's on by default?
Why do they make it such a trick to turn it off?
I do use a screen saver.

Bill.

Bill, when you get rid of hibernation and with the reduced pagefile size you should have 115 GB of extra Free Space.

Something to do with Windows Apps, according to Google.
