FOG Imaging/Capturing progress bar.



  • Hi Everyone

    Could you kindly assist, this might be a stupid query but I am afraid i will not progress if I do not ask.

    I am new in FOG and I am having a problem with my FOG Server not showing any progress when trying to Capture my Windows 10 Desktop.

    I have forced the task to capture the desktop but nothing has changed yet, I don’t see any progress…

    I think you might be on to something regarding the sectors, beacause i am running Win 10 on a 500GB HDD.

    One of my drives on the desktop seems to be failing during the capturing process, as I hear my one of my drives snap, resulting in a error.(Can post the error if you are keen)

    @Les just to be clear…is the 6TB Win10 desktop you are trying to capture the same one from your last comment, with a 500GB HD and additional hard drives? I am asking this because I noticed in an earlier comment you posted a screenshot uploading a Single Disk image seen here:

    If your desktop has multiple drives you want to capture, you need your image format to be like this:

    Perhaps that is why you are getting the error? I would post it for good measure though, just so @Sebastian-Roth or one of the many helpul forum mods can verify what the problem is.

    I then decided to use my other windows 10 laptop which is has a 1TB HDD, which added up to 232,860GB.

    Which does not make sense, but I believe it could be that the laptop has less data on it, leaving the desktop to be the other way around.

    Thanks Again Sebastian.

    However the desktop i am capturing is about 6TB

    FOG only reads the sectors being used. I guess you don’t actually have 6 TB of data on your desktop but more like maybe 750 GB - which is a lot by the way - compressed resulting in an image size of roughly 465 GB sounds reasonable. But That’s just me guessing.

    Thanks a million man, i restarted my desktop into pxe and it started capturing.

    Worked like a charm.

    However the desktop i am capturing is about 6TB and the FOG Server is on 3TB, But i have increased the compression level and it’s giving me this on the image management side size 465.87GB, So I am not sure if that is the image size of the captured Desktop.

    @Les Does the client boot into the task? What do you see on the client screen? The client needs to PXE boot for doing the capturing.
