    I'm trying to create a system image on an external 500Gb USB HD. I've used the same drive successfully on a Dell XPS12 so I know it works. Unfortunately on the SP2 it starting doing the image, then stops about 2-3 minutes in saying that the disk is inaccessible. I can access the disk and copy files in Explorer with no issues. I've tried formatting the disk but it didn't help.

    Any ideas?

    Use another imaging program..

    MS seems to have continuing problems doing imaging on the Surface Pro's. Did not work in Win 8 and does not work on my SP2 with Win 8.8.
