Discrepancies when creating image

Postby amrcvth » Wed Jul 18, 2012 10:46 am

I recently downloaded R-Drive 4.7 trial version to run tests to decide whether or not this program could be used here at the law firm I work at. I created an image of my entire hard drive onto an external hard drive, then I proceeded to make a disk-to-disk copy of this image onto another external hard drive. Both external hard drives are identical in storage space and the assumption was that they would have the same amount of free space after the images were stored on each of them. However, (F:) hard drive appears to have 3 GB more available space that (E:) hard drive. Upon reviewing the devices' properties, they have the exact same number of files. What is the problem?

Are those external drives of exactly the same model? And did you clone/image a system disk?

Yes, both external drives are identical--same model with the same amount of storage space. And yes, I did create an image of the system

I think there are no files like pagefile.sys and hiberfill.sys in the image.
