Default trouble creating backup

Hello everyone,
I have been trying to create a backup of my entire system in Vista, but it has been failing. It gives me the message "The data area passed to a system call is too small. Error 0x800700A"
Does anyone here know what to do?

Hardware/Software specs:
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 64-Bit
Source HD: Western Digital 320GB SATA
Destination HD: Hitachi 1TB SATA

Are you using Acronis or Ghost?
I'm talking about cloning your hard drive.
Vista is hard to get a bootable clone with all this piracy going on.

I'm sorry; I forgot to mention I am using Vista's built in Backup and Restore Center.

When I want to clone my hard drives, I use Easeus Disk Copy. If you know of a better one, I am open to suggestions.
