If you attempt to restore a Windows Server Backup or Windows Backup recovery image (system state) from a bootable recovery media (either DVD, USB or a recovery partition) you receive the following error message
Just to keep this simple. The limited amount of information available on-line on this error suggests that either the image is corrupt or you are having a network reliability issue.
These could be true. In my case, it wa the path length that I was using to recover the image from. I was recovering from
It turns out that the entire path must be 110 or fewer characters otherwise it will fail with the 0x80070001 error.
A simple fix is to temporarily create the path \\192.168.15.106\BackupFiles\WindowsImageBackup on your share and then copy the <hostname> folder into it. This worked in my case.
