Thanks for posting. Sorry you are having problems.

This error indicates that drive 'C' has fragmentation in the NTFS meta data that's causing a problem for Macrium Reflect. This is a rare situation that can usually be resolved by shrinking and then immediately expanding the file system to its original size using the Windows Disk Management Console. 

1. Open the DMC by typing diskmgmt.msc in the Windows search box:



2. Right click on drive C and select 'Shrink Volume', accept the defaults and click the 'Shrink' button:


3. Right click on drive 'C' again and, 'Extend Volume', click through the Wizard and click 'Finish'



This will return drive C to its original size.

When finished try to create your image again.


Kind Regards

Hi,

I shrinking and then immediately expanding the file system to its original size using the Windows Disk Management Console. But Macrium after this not working. Show same error File system bitmap fragmented.
Tested backup partition separate macrium working. Backup in separate parition 1 or 3 working normal. Only partition 2 this problem.

Thanks for getting back. Sorry that didn't work out for you.

Unfortunately it looks like this file system isn't going to be able to be imaged. Have you ever been able to image it in the past?

After backup image backup not working.

Was the file system shrunk or extended as part of the restore process? Or was it restored the same size as the original?

System was extended. Old disk was less capacity, new disk has larger capacity. After restore I have extended partition drive C:
