I cant capture Big image 300GB
- FOG Version: 8229
- OS: Ubuntu 14.04
- Service Version:
I have worked with fog well until today, my image has grown from 250GB to 300GB and FOG have an error when resizing before to capture the image:
What could be the problem?
@george1421 The disk defrag was not fully proper. It couldn’t move portions to the proper areas. Once done a few times (just guessing) I think it started to work for him because the bits of “freespace” were then “properly cleared”
@BASURILLABAS2 So do we have a root cause yet of this issue? Disk (organization, failure, structure), attempting to resize a really big image?? I’m finding this a unique issue that will probably come up again.
yes now it´s working
@BASURILLABAS2 So it’s working now then?
Currently it works well with the option 'Defrag & Optimize’
It’s not the same, but potentially related error.
Make sure the Hard Drive is actually in good working order though. Just because Windows is working properly, doesn’t mean the HDD is.
I can relate to working with heavy images. I’ve captured some as large as 482GiB
Looking at your picture, it appears that you created your image on a physical machine. Did you zero the HDD and verify it error free before you installed your OS?
I defrag the image with ‘Auslogics Disk Defrag’ with the option ‘Defrag & Optimize’ to leave the image no blank spaces and so work with and without resizable option.
How much free space is left on the disk, before trying to capture?
@BASURILLABAS2 If possible deploying the programs using snapins might be more desirable for your situation, just something you might want to consider for the future.
I have a lot of teaching with many programs and large size and every year grows the image
I also have to ask,
Why such a large image? Does this same setup work with fog on say a 20GB Image? Or 30GB?
I highly doubt it’s got anything to do with the size of the image directly, but 300GB seems a bit large for an image.
@BASURILLABAS2 Clonezilla doesn’t use resizable, maybe if you change the partition type so it’s of the “non-resizable” type?
I have tried to capture several times and its fail.
With Clonezilla works well.
I’ll try updating FOG.
@BASURILLABAS2 I’m guessing you’ve already tried capturing it again?
It could be the hard drive running into issues as well.
I recommend updating FOG to the latest and trying again (latest is RC11)
OS of image?: Windows 7 64 bits
Partition layout?: one only partition with defrag and chkdsk /f
OS of image? Partition layout?
