Hello, i created my custom image and always  get and error    and system lockup   when i attempt to sysprep and capture and image using mdt2010,   i've perfected my image  again! and i want to capture the image locally to a usb  before i attempt to capture  using mdt 2010  again

 i'm having trouble using imagex   my image is about 6gb  and  my usb is 16gb  but it saids its not enough space      

please recommend additional software  to capture the image    i  had major issues  using sysprep but they have be relieved since i started using audit mode   and http://blog.brianleejackson.com/sysprep-a-windows-7-machine-%E2%80%93-start-to-finish-v2


my major issue  is  capturing  my current image    

Thanks in Advance !!!

format your usb key using ntfs file system instead of fat and imagex will stop complaining :)

every imaging program will complain if you have fat file system because it does not support files larger than 4gb.
Either use ntfs, or use a program that can split images into smaller file. im not sure if clonezilla can do that. (acronis iamging has a feature to choose image files size)

imagex also supports splitting an image into multiple files, however, I would just do as suggested and format NTFS.
