DISM - Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

Q: DISM - Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

I found this tool while searching the system32 folder:



Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7048.0

DISM.exe [dism_options] {WIM_command} [<WIM_arguments>]
DISM.exe {/Image:<path_to_offline_image> | /Online} [dism_options]
{servicing_command} [<servicing_arguments>]
DISM enumerates, installs, uninstalls, configures, and updates features
and packages in Windows images. The commands that are available depend
on the image being serviced and whether the image is offline or running.
/Get-MountedWimInfo - Displays information about mounted WIM images.
/Get-WimInfo - Displays information about images in a WIM file.
/Commit-Wim - Saves changes to a mounted WIM image.
/Unmount-Wim - Unmounts a mounted WIM image.
/Mount-Wim - Mounts an image from a WIM file.
/Remount-Wim - Recovers an orphaned WIM mount directory.
/Cleanup-Wim - Deletes resources associated with mounted WIM
images that are corrupt.
/Online - Targets the running operating system.
/Image - Specifies the path to the root directory of an
offline Windows image.
/English - Displays command line output in English.
/Format - Specifies the report output format.
/WinDir - Specifies the path to the Windows directory.
/SysDriveDir - Specifies the path to the system-loader file named
/LogPath - Specifies the logfile path.
/LogLevel - Specifies the output level shown in the log (1-4).
/NoRestart - Suppresses automatic reboots and reboot prompts.
/Quiet - Suppresses all output except for error messages.
/ScratchDir - Specifies the path to a scratch directory.
For more information about these DISM options and their arguments, specify an
option immediately before /?.
DISM.exe /Mount-Wim /?
DISM.exe /ScratchDir /?
DISM.exe /Image:C:\test\offline /?
DISM.exe /Online /?

Usage short example:
DISM /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\W7\sources\install.wim /index:1

Looks really promising for working with WIM image files. Off to test it right now!

Note: I found someone has already started testing in order to create a guide. Will try on my part too.
How to use Windows 7 DISM by Muiz - Forums


A: DISM - Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

I have been working with WinPE ever since version 1.0 and using it to deploy images, make backups, etc. Now that version 3.0 is out I have written a full tutorial on how to use it, build the boot environment, using it in a network/computer support department environment, and using GimageX GUI with DISM to deploy and capture images.

You can read my tutorial on DISM here -> Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) ? WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment -
You can download my WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment Compilation completely free here -> WinPE 3.0 Boot Environment Scripts -

Let me know what you think. Enjoy and happy imaging!

I've recently been trying to use Macrium Reflect free to create a Windows PE, and it always failed with an error (number 112).

So I went to Microsoft to do it manually, got the Windows ADK (verson 5) and installed it. Then, using the Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment as Administrator. Using the instructions provided here (WinPE: Add Packages (Optional Components Reference)) I got an error. I was going to add support for Bitlocker, but I didn't get that far.

Specifically, I typed in the following:
copype amd64 C:\WinPE_amd64
Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"C:\WinPE_amd64\media\sources\boot.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"C:\WinPE_amd64\mount"

After the second command, I got an error:
Error: 112
There is not enough space on the disk.

I have attached the log file (with the .log extension changed to .txt) for your viewing pleasure. The error in the file is posted here, too:

From what I have read about WinPE, you cannot run it from your Hard Drive, it will not run when Windows is operating.
You need to create a bootable USB or CD.

How can I identify what file(s) are corrupted and can I use the P50t files as a repair source? If so, what do I do? I can follow instructions, most times

Here is the problem:
My wifes laptop, a Toshiba P840 (running 8.1 64bit) has a problem. I also have a Toshiba laptop, a P50t (running 8.1 64bit). On mine, I ran sfc /scannow which found corrupted files. Using this forum as a guide, I ran the DISM cleanup tool, which fixed the problem(s). sfc /scannow is error free.

Ran sfc /scannow on the P840 which found corrupted files. Ran the DISM cleanup tool. It failed with this report: "error: 0x000f0906 The source files could not be downloaded. Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature," etc, etc.

I was puzzled as to why one laptop would obviously download the required files but not the other. Thinking that it might be that I have Windows Update set to notify me of updates but not download them, I changed the setting to allow updates automatically.

I ran DISM Cleanup tool again and it failed again, reporting this: "The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the component store cannot be repaired. Error: 0x00f081f. DSIM Failed. No operation was performed."

The DISM log file looks strange (not that I have ever seen one before). I will copy/paste some of it here. Once it gets into the "Chinese/Japanese" characters, they go on forever, lol) Th... Read more

When running the DISM Tool to scan and restore any missing or corrupted files on the drive, is it imperative to be connected to the internet, or can it be run offline? I have run the Tool both online and offline and both the methods has worked giving the same result. But the Command implies an internet connection.

I had this discussions with someone recently

The /Online parameter does not mean connected to the internet, it means running DISM against a booted system.


/Online - Targets the running operating system.
/Image - Specifies the path to the root directory of an

Windows 10 power user here. I've been viewing help topics here for some time and found this forum very useful. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to solve.

Whenever I use the DISM tool to repair Windows 10, I get the error "0x800f081f - The source files could not be found".

I tried the ESD, WIM and ONLINE options using a mounted Windows 10 installation ISO, and pointed to it correctly in the command (I followed Brink's tutorial). However, I get the same error. I don't understand why DISM cannot find it if it is running with administrative privileges, and I can CLEARLY see the file in Explorer. I also tried copying the .esd and .wim file to Desktop. Again, the same error. I also tried turning off all firewalls temporarily but to no avail.

Here is my dism.log file.

A friend has been having an intermittant issue with a Win 8 app so I've run the DISM tool. When I run it, it says it completed successfully, and "the component store corruption was repaired". But if I run it again immediately, it gives the same message. I've rebooted too, same result, four times now. I've also run sfc /scannow, it does not find any errors.

Any ideas what is going on?

Hi All, new to the forum,

Has anyone had any joy using the DISM image deployment tool,

below is the message i get trying to capture an image

DISM doesn't recognise the command-line option "d:\thinimage.wim"

I've tried the below.

dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

I've checked this over and over and i'm defiantly following the line they require.... any ideas? Thanks.

A:Win 8 Image Deployment

I know nothing about DISM, so please check what I say first...

...but looking at the format of the command line, I wonder if there should be a colon after /imagefile?

so replace
dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile "d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

dism /capture-image /capturedir:f:\ /imagefile:"d:\thinimage.wim" /name:"MyCompany"

Hello everyone,

I've been having a terrible time trying to diagnose and fix corrupted system files. I have recently updated to windows 10 during the free upgrade process. I was running Windows 7 Pro before I updated.

I have tried sfc /scannow command multiple times, in safe mode and in normal operation.

Every time I get this message:

"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios."

So researching online, I found that using the DISM tool will fix this issue.

However every time I run the command, I get this:

"Error: 0x800f081f

The source files could not be found.
Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log"

I've even tried mounting the windows 10 iso that I downloaded from the media creation tool and running it again, however I still get the same message to no avail. I've seen other forums with users saying to use the original windows 10 iso and not to use the iso created by the media creation tool. However I can't seem to find this file and am not sure it would work anyways.

Hi have a query

i want to dpely windows 7 across around 10 PC's but minimise user downtime, as such i intend to install manually using retail versions of the software then update to the specifications i need. all the final workstations will need to be the same.

i have 3 pc's to roll out, then i will drag 3 in, upgrade, redeploy and so on, thus meaning that noone will loose much productivity to downtime.

whats killing me is that after install, which takes around 30 mins including office and other bits of software, the patching and updating of windows on each machine to latest KB updates is taking forever!! so with say 10-15 new pcs all trying to install updates within few hours its going to slow the network to a stop.

is there anyway i can take one of the pc's i have finished, image the updates and software installs then patch them all onto a new clean install of retail windows 7????

i have looked at all sorts of networkable options such as microsoft system essentials or symantec ghost, but none will allow a stand alone image creation off network that i can tell


thanks in advance for any advice

I have a licensing question regarding the deployement of Windows 7.

We are currently purchasing notebooks that have an OEM key for Windows 7 Pro and have been configuring each by hand which can get really annoying. I want to create an image of Windows 7 and use it for deployement however I'm not too sure about the licensing involved.

First off, you cannot image an OEM version and you need an open license version, correct?

Do I need to purchase a VLK license for each notebook that I want to image to? Or can I just purchase 1 open license and image that to multiple computers since the OEM key is in fact for Windows 7 Professional?

A:Image Deployment of Windows 7

I believe you're going to need to look into VLK if you're intending on using the same key & installation across multiple machines. You "may" be able to get away with buying one 7Pro and then inserting the individual OEM key that is on the individual laptop stickers, however I'm not sure on that one so don't quote me there. I'm sure someone else here does know this answer though so sit tight, some one else will surely be able to answer this.

Aside from the licensing issues, once you get the version of Windows that you'll be installing legally with a licensed key, you should look into windows sysprep. It will cut your distribution time down incredibly using this method rather than setting up each machine individually from scratch.

I work for a large bookstore with a relatively small IT department, and we are looking for a way to image and restore a small number of PCs. Basically, I want to set up a master template PC, build an image of it, then be able to deploy that image over a Microsoft network from a server computer and/or from a bootable CD (pretty standard, I guess).

However, I want to be able to do this without having to install an imaging program on the master PC (preferrably to run the imaging software from a shared drive, because installing the imaging software on the client machines would violate the license agreement) and without booting to DOS from a floppy disk (the server machine doesn't have a floppy drive).

We're considering a few solutions for this: Acronis TrueImage 7, Imagecast 4.6.1, Altiris RapiDeploy, or Norton Ghost 2003. Will any of these solutions perform what we're looking for (I've been through the manuals for each and it seems like they can't add a client agent without booting the client machine into DOS or running the software from the client machine)? Does anyone have any suggestions from personal experience to use these or other products to accomplish this task?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I'm attempting to follow this guide to capture a Windows 7 image:

I have a test PC with Windows 7 installed on it waiting to be captured.

I've installed the MDT 2013 Update 2 and Windows ADK for Windows 10 to my technician PC.  Unlike this guide, however, I have no tree under 'Deployment Shares'.  So I have no option to import an OS.

This seems to be a stumbling block to actually capture an image.  Is there something I'm missing?  Is there something that needs to be configured that I don't know about?  I'm still learning this whole process so it's entirely possible there's
something glaringly obvious I don't see.

Nope. Windows sees the hard disk "environment" as not being 100% on par with what it used to be. Plus it doesn't hurt to run it after an image deployment like that anyways

I am having a VERY odd issue with Windows XP Pro and Tablet PC Edition.

I have been following Microsoft's Single-Image Deployment Supplemental Guide which discusses single-image deployment and how to use this process to deploy Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 in your organization while using your existing Windows XP Professional image.

I followed the article to a T and imported all the Tablet PC components in the Sysprep directory and then re-syspreped the box. At first once mini-setup finished the system would lock up on the Windows XP splash screen about the 3rd time the progress bar cycled through. So I went to Safe Mode and everything worked like a charm. So just as a troubleshooting step I tried to use Safe Mode with Networking. That locked up at the splash screen in the same spot which lead me to believe it was a networking issue. So I disabled all listed networking adapters and tried to boot into normal mode.

Once I saw "Applying Computer Settings" I thought all was good. So I waited until I saw the standard "Press Cntrl-Alt + Delete to Login" screen. So I hit cntrl alt delete and nothing happend. So I tried moving the mouse, and to my amazment, the entire computer is hard locked. This is happening everytime I reboot the computer into Normal mode and the login screen appears. So I tried to go back into Safe Mode with Networking to test that theory again. Although I am able to get logged into the system the system actually hard lo... Read more

Windows 10 user. Having some trouble with my system after coming back from a weekend. Nothing major...just having trouble playing some games that require plugins etc

Regardless if it's related, I just wanted to run an SFC/Scannow or DISM/RestoreHealth
I downloaded the image from MS since I know you can't run it natively without an image in least now. . Want to get everything repaired and in good shape since I am getting a second hard drive for a backup and don't want to backup something that may have issues. For some reason system restore wasnt't automatically making restore points so that is why I just want to do something "drastic" like this and then set up the task under scheduler.

I just want to do it from the command prompt within windows.
For example, what would I need to type into the prompt if I had the image on my desktop? Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi There,

I found this forum thru KariTheFinn's YouTube Videos which are superb! My first post is a problem that hunts me since quite some time now. I startet too more or less ignore it since it was only a problem with one program. But since I switch mail clients it's now also a problem there. But first things first.

I have a Hyper-V Service running on my Windows 10 Machine for toying around. In there I was trying to create my personal perfect Windows 10 Installation with all the Apps, Tools, Settings, etc. I like and want. I did all of this in my created user account Yves. So all the settings from many apps (for example Chrome) are in this user profile. After I was done. I shutdown the Hyper-V Machine Boot up the WindowsPE.iso. And dism the complete machine to a mapped network drive. Than I created a new Hyper-V Machine booted directly into WindowsPE.iso. Diskpartet the complete system like I like. 100MB EFI. 1GB Rescue. 50GB System Partition. Dism the image back to the System Partition and bcdbooted the System Partition. Bootet up and tada System is "almost" like I left it before on the other VM. Only thing missing are for example Chrome extensions and settings. Which I can not figure out why this happens? Newly since I moved from em Client to Outlook 2016. Also Outlook 2016 does not like the dism'ing around. It says .ost file has to be deleted.

Anyone an idea why this is happening and how I can prevent it?

Thanks for your help guys.

The current problem I am having with Acronis Snap Deploy 3.0 is that when I try to deploy an image it deploys normally and Snap Deploy does the extra setup before Windows loads to a logon screen. The problem I am having is after I log in, windows is missing the "Vista" theme and whenever I try to click on anyting (Computer, Documents) It gives me a popup messege that has a title of "Explorer.exe" and in the messege it says "class not registed." I cannot figure out why the image is not working. I am deploying it onto the exact same computer I made the image from. It was a clean install of windows Vista Business.

To make the image I loaded the master computer into the Acronis software using the Acronis PXE server. I then imaged the computer and the image was put directly on the imaging server.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You

I've always just attached the target media device and booted the Acrois CD to create the image.

I'm trying to add Intel chipset drivers to a Windows 7 image (.wim file). I was able to add some Broadcom network drivers without any problems, but when I try to add the chipset drivers, I get this error:

A:Adding drivers to Windows 7 image with DISM

Did these drivers support to Windows 7? Could you please point where did you download the chipset drivers? I will make a test to add on my WIM to check if the drivers
have problem.
check if you really need these drivers for your computer:
Please Note: Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does
not guarantee the accuracy of this information.
And there’s the steps about
How to add Chipsets drivers inside the image install.wim:

1) Expand the file ***.zip

2) You will see the files for Windows 7 inside the folder ***\WIN7

3) Copy/paste all the files (.inf and .cat files) inside a folder (example: C:\Drivers\Chipsets)

4) Mount the image you want to integrate the drivers (example above).

5) Integrate drivers with the command line

6) Unmount /Commit

Hope that helps.

Hello. I have an issue.

I want to capture an Linux OS custom image or a fresh one and want to use WDS to complete the job. Could it be done?

I know I can use WDS from server to deploy WIN 7 or anyother Win OS to other systems. But can I use the same service to deploy Linux OS to other new systems and how can I go around in capturing the Linux OS image.

I don't want to use any third party application to capture and deploy both WIN and Linux images. I can use SysPrep to capture Windows image, but how do I go about capturing Linux image?

Is there an in-built app for Linux to capture an image like SysPrep (for WIN)???

Please help.

I am using Windows 8.1 Update with its Windows ADK.
I noticed that if I run the command
Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>" /discard
while the Files Explorer is opened on any directory, this command displays an error and it can not unmount the volume image. Instead, if I close the Files Explorer, the above command unmounts the image correctly. How come?

A:DISM /online /cleanup-image /restoreheath FAILS

I found the errors when you running the DISM from WIM, it says ?The source files could not be found; their location must be specified using the /source option?. Please check the install.WIM location then retry that command. You also could copy then WIM file
to local drive and give the right path to command.
Make sure your image is not cloned from another hard disk by using clone software, some clone image could cause these errors and it might cannot be fixed.
If this issue still persists, using system file checker to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.

No worries. You are just entering the command incorrectly. It should be this below with the spaces instead:

Just to note, that dism doesn't repair corrupt files. Instead it fixes the component store that SFC uses to fix corrupted files instead.

Hello everyone,

I seem to have some serious problems with my Windows 10 Build 10.0.10586.113. These started after trying to take Ownership of C:/ (where I installed Windows). I tried this because on several occasions trying to move/copy files in different directories I could not do it (ownership problems seem to be not unusual after upgrading from Win 8). When trying to take ownership of C:/ and all its subdirectories I got several error messages ("Acess denied"). At first I just skipped them, but there where so many my finger just got tired (and it also seemed that something was going wrong). I downloaded a .reg which adds the option "Take Ownership" when right-clicking on a folder. Using this added my user account (with administrator rights) to the security options for the folders but the checkboxes were all empty. However I now could restart the procedure I tried before and this time there were no "Acess denied" errors and afterwards all checkboxes were filled with full acess (and all other options).

For a couple of days all seemed to work fine.

Yesterday I tried to open an *.jpg file and the usual W10 app would not be able to open it anymore. Same when trying to open a pdf using edge. So something was wrong with the apps. All the apps (like calculator, store etc.) just immediately crash. Of course I tried several troubleshootings for this known problem. Nothing worked.

Now I'm trying to repair my system using DISM or an inplace-upgrade.... Read more

- Why did you run the Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool?
Generally, we will get this error 0x800F081F when there is any corruption in the system file. Let’s run the system file checker scan and check if there are any corrupt system files.
SFC (System File Checker) is a tool which scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the system files by using the correct versions.
Refer the following article for more information on using SFC tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files:
You may also try this command and see if it makes any difference.

Good morning,
We are trying to solve this problem for months, but we have tried all the solutions from the web and the problems remains, also in models that where correctly working.
Our company is deploying W7 64 bit, on a lot of different models, using Landesk, using many vbs scripts made by us. The gold image is made on a virtual machine, then syspreped and captured.
This syspreped wim is deployed to the client by a WinPE 5.0 x86 (W8.1 32 bit), using imagex command, the same problems happens using dism commands. First of all, we partition the disk in MBR, with one partition of 300 mb for booting, and another one for the
system. Then the syspreped wim is applied, to both partitions
(we have also tried to create de boot partition instead of appliying it).
At last, we install the drivers to the offline image using dism. So, although we use Landesk, the problem happens doing all the process manually with WinPE, and I think it would happen with any deployment app.
It happens on new and older machines, at the beginning we think that it could be because of the SSD disks, but it also occurs on non SSD Disks?We use

Finished this process, the machine is restarted, but when Windows logo is charging it freezes, and gives a BSOD with 0x7E error. We have seen that this only happens with a fully updated image,

task sequence as the current one has several customizations that I would have to redo. When I try to change the OS in the "Install Operating System" step in the sequence to point to the updated image, the deployment will fail with a message such

Hello, as you already know from the title I have problems with the windows utilities that fix corruptions. After I upgraded to build 1607, those utilities worked, but now after a few weeks I tried to do them again after some driver updates just to be sure and now they find corruptions and can't fix them. I modified my windows a bit, nothing too serious, but since then after getting the errors I reverted them back to win default ( I think I did all of them, not 100% sure, since I don't write down my modifications... silly me) Here are the logs from an hour or so ago, when I tried the DISM / SFC combo. Please help

A:Windows DISM and SFC fail to fix corruptions. DISM error 1726 / WIN 10

All of the CSI Payload corrupt warnings reference .lnk files only. These are File Explorer shortcuts only, not actual binary files themselves. I wouldn't worry about them unless you're noticing issues related to the files they "touch." Try accessing cleanmgr.exe at the command line (or in the run dialog box) and see if it works. If it does, that tells me Explorer still knows where to find things without the shortcuts. Worst case, you can always navigate to these items manually.

OTOH, if you have access to the ISO from which you made your most recent install, you can use that install.wim (from the \Sources folder) as the target for the /source parameter in the DISM command. This should find those missing links (pun intended) and set you straight.

Everything loads fine in DISM, no errors at all. Every single INF reports "The driver package was successfully installed."

But when I apply the image to a new E7240 laptop, all the drivers load except the USB 3.0 driver. I go into Device Manager and see the yellow caution sign on that device.

I have tried changing the registry in the image to look at a folder called C:\Drivers as a driver repository and then placed the drivers in there raw... but no luck.

What's frustrating is that you can go into Device Manager, right-click on the USB 3.0 device with the error, then update the driver and it loads fine. Why doesn't this driver load automatically like all the other drivers?

A:Issues with USB 3.0 Driver on Latitude E7240 laptop - loaded into offline Win7 image via DISM but will not install automatically

I had something similar happen on an image I made, geminitx. I ended up mounting the .wim, via DISM, manually copying the driver(s) into \system32\drivers, and re-committing the image. Once applied to the target PC the driver was magically used. I assume what happened was, upon first boot, it realized there was a problem and scanned \drivers for what it needed, found it, and moved on. Pure conjecture but it worked for me at the time and I moved on.

Hi, the disk management tool on my windows doesn't move on and hangs at "connecting to virtual disk service" forever:

A:Disk management tool not working

Hi invincible,

Since it is a brand new rig and I'm assuming you have done nothing of significance to drastically alter the OS, I would first contact the HP support group for assistance because there may be more corruption yet to be found. However, if you would like to try and fix it before doing so, you can try these 2 commands from an elevated command prompt:

sfc /scannow (this will take a while)

If errors are report run this next command:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

If DISM reports success, try opening Disk Management again.
Good luck,

The main focus of my search is for a utility that will allow the setting and saving of process priority via simple right-click through task manager. I had my eye on PRIO as it looked to do just that while also offering the bonus of a convenient UAC auto-elevation option. Unfortunately it looks not to have been supported since 2012. I aborted installation when it began looking like some of the options may be Vista only.

Forum search resulted in only a few related threads, most of which were quite dated. I'm hoping there may currently be additional options.

A:Process Management Tool Suggestions?

Some years ago I tried PRIO on Windows 7 and it seemed to work well. If it was supported up until 2012 it is highly probable that it fully supported Windows 7, which after all was released in 2009. The reference to Vista may have been to Vista and later. The documentation may not have been updated.

I am not currently using it as I have no need for it.

There are some stand alone utilities that can set process priority but I know of none that work through Task Manager.

I have a few issues regarding the installation of some of the key drivers after installing Win XP Pro - SP3. I installed this as opposed to the Vista OS that the PC came with.

My issue is that I have read about a driver management tool for analysing and there are hundreds on the web. Just wondering if anyone has used this tool and what one you would recommend for use. Freeware would obviously be good however I will pay for something if it is worth it.

Really grateful if you could help out.

Hi everyone,
I’m currently looking for a tool to manage multiple Exchange calendars in Outlook. I have several Exchange calendars from different organizations (i.e. different domains), all of which we share with “Availability” privacy level. My problem is that when I add an appointment in my “Company A” calendar, no one in “Company B” will see that I became unavailable then. Here’s what I imagine:
If I get a new appointment invitation or create a new appointment myself, I’d like to be able to choose which calendar(s) this appointment is added to. The tool should provide some sort of meta-calendar that holds all my appointments in one central calendar. When I change an appointment, it should be changed in all the Exchange calendars I added it to.
Does anyone know something in that area? Do you even think this is possible?

I'm trying to create a new simple volume in 130 GB free disk space. There's no obvious reason why it would refuse to do so - I'm not at the hard limit on number of partitions or anything - but disk management MSC is consistently returning "Not enough space" errors.

The only thing I can think of is something to do with the partition order, but if so I have no idea how to fix it non-destructively. I'm in the middle of backups on it, so deleting partitions is a no-go. At the moment I don't understand what's going on.

I'm looking for some kind of "official" Microsoft documentation or TechNet article explaining the proper process for injecting Windows Updates / Hotfixes into a Windows WIM image to allow me to deploy a version of windows that already has all (or at least
most) of the current windows updates.
Does anyone know if such a document exists? Or perhaps someone from Microsoft can respond to this post with some well documented steps on how I would accomplish this?

A:Windows Update / Hotfix Injection into Windows 7 WIM image for Deployment

WSUS Offline Tool

Download the WSUS Offline Tool and extract to another working directory, e.g. "C:\wsusoffline"
Run the "UpdateGenerator.exe" tool.
Select the version of Windows you wish to update, e.g. "x64 Global" under the Windows 7 category.
Optionally select to use a WSUS server on your local network with the "WSUS..." button.

Press the "Start" button. A command window will appear displaying the progress of the utility. The updates are downloaded to the "./client/w61-x64/glb" directory within the "wsusoffline"
The Windows 7 Media

Download the Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7 and
install. This will allow you to obtain the "DISM.exe" command line utility that is needed.
Extract all files from the Windows 7 media. Store these files in a working directory, e.g. "C:\Win7_x64_Ent_Source"
Create a temp directory that will be used to mount the WIM image to in order to manipulate the files, e.g. "C:\Win7_x64_Ent_WIM"
Open an elevated command prompt.
Run the follow command to mount the WIM file:

dism /mount-wim /wimfile:C:\Win7_x64_Ent_Source\sources\install.wim /mountdir:C:\Win7_x64_Ent_WIM /index:1

You can determine the index number of the image you need to mount by running the "dism /get-wiminfo" command.

Hi, this is my first post and i hope that somebody can help me!

I am running Windows XP service pack 3.
I'm not too bad on the laptop but things don't come naturally easy so i would appreciate a simple response if that is possible.

Problem is;
I have images in "My Pictures"/Picasa3 and also in the Canon Zoom Browser EX that i have just loaded onto my machine,
If i download new images from my camera or card they automatically go into all 3 applications.
Worst thing though is that if i delete a single image or a folder from just one of the applications i lose that image/images from all 3!!!!! I also had Elements 4 and the situation was just the same but i have deleted Elements for now.

What i want to be able to do is;
1) Load Elements 9 onto my laptop.
2) Download and manage all pics from my wifes point and shoot into "My Pictures" only.
3) Drag my wifes pics into Elements for editing only as required.
4) Download my pics from my Canon 7D into the Canon application only.......for editing of RAW images.
5) Move pics from the Canon application into Elements 9 for further processing as required.

I dont know if i am missing something really simple here but i feel sure that the above cannot be too difficult.....or can it??

Any help to get me on the way to enjoying the results of my expensive new 7D would be greatly appreciated.

* Is there a command (similar to the one in C language) like "Compare" that compares files for size, date, etc.?

* For backing up files, is there a way to ONLY back ups files with recent dates?

* Someone suggested partitioning the new drive for a OS part and a Data files part to make creating images and backups quicker. I'm already running the new HDD. Is it too late to do this.

If there isn't sufficient space on the backup drive to save a System Image, will Windows delete an existing System Image in order to make room?
Does it make a difference whether you've selected "Keep only the latest system image and minimize space used by backup" compared to "Let Windows manage the space used for backup history"?
Assuming that there's only one saved System Image and "Keep only latest" has been selected, if Windows creates a new System Image before deleting the old one (which I suppose is the safer course of action), then the minimum size needed for the
backup drive is some delta more than two times the expected size of a System Image.  Is that correct?

Hi again, I was trying to do a system image restore with an image I created on a back up EX-HD a while back, the problem is it doesn't have enough space to create a new system image which I'm fine with but does have enough to save a backup of my data files on the drive I'm trying to do a recovery for. When I tried to restore it with the last system image I created a while ago, it told me the last data backup I've done was a while back and if I'd like to do a backup now, when I clicked yes it said I didn't have enough space for a system image. Seeing as how I only wanted to backup data files and not create a new system image I closed the window.

I then decided to do a data backup from the backup and recovery panel with the backup now option assuming it was only going to backup the data files. After which about half a day of the recovery running, I checked the status and it is creating a NEW system image.

My question is if I end the backup now in the middle of the creation of the new system image (since it would be a pointless system image since it's the system I'm trying to revert from) will it retain my older system image, or am I screwed and it has already deleted my older system image and I may as well let it finish creating this new one?

A:Backup and recovery space management problem, with system image

I can't answer your question directly.

Windows Backup is cryptic, a bit inflexible, and prone to misunderstandings and confusion. That's exactly why I gave up on it.

I'd suggest you think of your backup tasks as being in 2 categories:

1: Backup of Windows itself and all installed applications, using an imaging program.
2: Backup of everything else---typically your personal data, WITHOUT using imaging.

I'd use a separate program to do each of those tasks. I'd do the former perhaps weekly or monthly and the latter daily if not more often.

A program like Macrium or Acronis or Aomei Backupper could make an image within 10 minutes to an hour, depending on how much space is occupied on your Windows partition.

A program such as FreeFileSync or Synctoy can backup personal data with a single mouse click. The first backup might take hours, but subsequent later backups are much quicker. I back up 90,000 files occupying about 600 GB daily and the procedure takes anywhere from 30 to 80 seconds, rarely more.

I have noticed lately that my computer seems to take an excessively long time to boot up completely - almost 5 minutes. Also when clicking on desktop icons, they seem to also take much longer to load. Windows Explorer (the folder and file management tool, not to be confused with the browser Internet Explorer) is agonizingly slow to rename and open folders and files, sometimes taking close to 2 minutes just to open a 56 KB file. I have done all the usual things like running a virus and spyware scans (I have AdAware, Spybot, Malwarebytes and ATFCleaner, CCleaner as well as my ISP's Computer Associates Antivirus, Firewall and Spyware protection installed), emptying temp files and recycle bin and defraging the hard drive and I've unchecked "Automatically search for Network folders and printers". I also did a chkdsk scan and a system restore to before when the problem started. Nothing seems to help the slow response, especially when working with folders and files through Windows Explorer.

As mentioned in the linked article

Windows Disc Image Burner will need to be set as the default program with all of it associations (.iso & .img) set to it for this to work. It is by default in Windows 7.Click to expand...

If you have installed other burning software (e.g. Nero), the Windows Disk Image Burner will still work but not exactly the same as the steps in the article. To access it you right click on the ISO you want to burn and click "Open with", then choose Windows Disk Image Burner.

On occasion my Desktop shutsdown with a message that the PC has shutdown due to thermal overload and I need to service the PC. How on earth do I do that. I have vacumed the inside, but still had the message again

A:Servicing a PC ????

It's getting too hot. You need to add more fans, use it in a cooler place, or get one that is more heat-tolerant.

If this just started and the machine ran well before, check that the CPU is seated well and that the heatsink is firmly attached. You may need to replace the thermal compound. Make sure all vents are clear.

What is the ambient temperature?

A:Servicing PC

I never charge family. I did for a while do some service on my uncle's machine to work off a debt, but I didn't charge him as such. Typically I don't even charge friends, unless it's a major operation. I do sometimes let them buy me diner or take old hardware off their hands in exchange. Of course, I wouldn't buy new hardware to put in any of this stuff without being compensated, but if it's just a spare I have lying around I may give them that for free or next-to-nothing.

Thanks everyone for your help. This is last question. I downloaded a 14257 ESD file online and am using the ESD to ISO tool and it is creating the ISO now. Where does the ISO save by default?

Does anyone know if it?s worth it to have Microsoft do a onetime servicing on my home PC / Windows 7?

What about software that I can download or buy?



A:One Time Servicing?

Microsoft does not provide such a service.

This sounds very much like a scam.

There are many websites that claim to represent Microsoft but do not. Their only purpose is to part you from your money. Microsoft or any of it's affiliated organizations will not call to offer such services.
