System Image - Thumb Drive is not a valid backup location

I'm using windows 7 to create a system image (or drive image) as it is called on a thumb drive.  The drive is freshly formatted NTFS, is 128 gig, and my image is only about 30 gig.  Why won't it create an image on a thumb drive?
Thanks in advance, John

I believe that the target drive - where the image goes - must be at least the same size as the drive you want to image.

It is - my C: partition is set to 70 gb, the system image takes about 30 gb, and the thumb drive is 128 gb.  The entire hard disk (c: and d: partitions) is 250 gb.
