Running Win8 x64. C is an SSD with lots of free space (>200GB). I run:
recimg /createimage C:\CustomRefreshImages\Img121105
Source OS location: C: Recovery image path: C:\CustomRefreshImages\Img121105\CustomRefresh.wim Creating recovery image. Press [ESC] to cancel. Initializing The recovery image cannot be written. Error Code - 0x80070002
The paths specified in the command line are created, and I'm running this in an elevated command prompt, so it's not a permissions issue.
I've googled this but could only find worthless results, including a particularly entertaining one where the "solution" included instructions for creating a screenshot (press PrtScreen). Any help would be most appreciated.
