Issue Details

When I try to replicate the image of my Real-Time (RT) target using the NI Replication and Deployment (RAD) Utility , I receive the following error message:

Error -2147220321 when replicating image.jfif
Application Image Retrieval Error:
 nisyscfg.lvlib:Create System Image (Folder).vi:710001<APPEND>

Error -2147220321 indicates that the directory containing the image to replicated is not found. To resolve this problem, reformat the RT target.
