Default W7 system image creation

I use a computer at work that has Windows 8.1 with Classic Shell installed.

I'm trying to get some kind of backup system going on that computer,
desired would be the W7 backup images and File History. If I pull this
off, it will be the only computer with any kind of backup system.

Using a bare hard drive in a dock, I tried to create a W7 system image.
There were no other programs running AFAIK (I'm not the only person who
uses the computer), and I started the process at the end of the day.
Before I even left, I got a backup failed message that said:

"Windows Backup failed to get an exclusive lock on the EFI system
partition (ESP). This may happen if another application is using files
on the ESP. Please retry the operation. (0x8078011e)

"Additional information:
"Access is denied. (0x800700015)

Most of the info I found on the web is old, but two things may be the
problem. Permissions, which shouldn't be the problem, and the
anti-virus program.

Anyone else have places I could look?

Mac OS X 10.11.6
Firefox 51.0.1 (64 bit)
Thunderbird 45.7.1
