Recimg hangs showing 1% of the image written. Creates target file on drive, lots of disc activity but doesen't write any data. Tried with a couple of different target drives (internal and USB) from elevated CP and using RECIMG Manager. Left the process overnight - still at 1%. This is absoulutely consistent, no error message reported.
It doesn't hang; it shows 1% for approximately 10-20 mins. After that period of time it shows the real progress. Depending on your Windows 8 partition and backup data, it will finish within 30 minutes with ultimate compression.
