"not enough disk space" when backing up and creating a system image. Tech Support

"not enough disk space" when backing up and creating a system image.

I have a 500GB C drive and have used 282 GB of it.  I installed another 500GB internal drive specifically for back ups.  I used windows back up to make a system image and allowed it to select the files to back up.  Itcame back with the "not enough disk
space" error but still had backed up the files, but does not look like the system image was done.  How can I not have enough space but they are the same size hard drives

Hi Todd with Mutual of Omaha,

Welcome to Microsoft Windows.

I will need some more information to assist you better.
a) Do you get any error code while you are trying to when backing up and creating a system image?
b) Have you checked whether the hard disk has sufficient free space to occupy the backed up files?

If it doesn’t have enough space, then I will suggest you to use disk clean up utility to delete the files that are not essential to you :

1. Open Disk Cleanup by clicking the Start button.
In the search box, type Disk Cleanup, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Cleanup.

2. In the Drives list, click the hard disk drive that you want to clean up, and then click OK.
3. In the Disk Cleanup dialog box, on the Disk Cleanup tab, select the check boxes for the file types that you want to delete, and then click OK.
4. In the message that appears, click Delete files.
