Windows 7 Enterprise - Create System Image - Backup Failed - Error 0x80780119

I have tried to create a system image of my laptop which is running Windows 7 Enterprise.  It has a 500 GB Hard Disk that I partitioned to create a separate data drive (E).  The C drive has 234 GB with 47 GB of free space and the E drive has 231 GB with 16 GB of free space.  The only drive that I am trying to backup is the C drive and there is a "System Reserve" partition of 100 MB with 62 MB used that is normally checked by default when I ran the backup wizard.  I cannot deselect the system reserve.  The 1TB external drive that I am using for the backup is pretty new and it has over 600 GB of free space.

Whenever I try to run the Backup and Restore wizard to create a system image I get the following error message:

"There is not enough disk space to create the volume shadow copy on the storage location.  Make sure that, for all volumes to be backup up, the minimum required disk space for shadow copy creation is available.  This applies to both the backup storage destination and volumes included in the backup.... (0x80780119)"

I cannot create the system image or setup the regular backups because of this problem.  Could someone please advise as to how to resolve this problem?  Thanks in advance!

This problem is well-known.
1. You can try to uncheck "include system image".  
2. One safe workaround would be to increase the system reserved partition size to 500 MB.
