  1. Can I make a system image of Windows 10?


    The other day I thought I'd made a system image of Windows 10, which is now my OS. But, I see it says "Backup and Restore (Windows 7)". So, did I just backup my previous OS then, and not my current OS? And if so, can I make a system image of my Windows 10 OS? Thanks.

    :)

  2. Can I restore an image of UEFI system to a MBR partition?

    Hello, IMO, this isn't feasible. You may receive this error while doing so: The system image restore failed. Windows cannot restore a system image to a computer that has different firmware. The system image was created on a computer using EFI and this
    computer is using BIOS. Try and see if you can proceed with it. Regards.

    Can I restore an image of UEFI system to a MBR partition?

    Is this feasible?

    I have Windows 10 on UEFI/GPT partition. I have an image created by Windows own backup tool.

    I got a small SSD which people say it's better to kept in MBR.

    Is it possible to somehow restore the UEFI system image to MBR SSD?

    Thanks

  5. Okay. Also, I've just seen, doing another backup on another PC, that after you have backed up, you get a prompt about making a bootable CD ROM disc, and it tells me to mark it "Windows 10 32 bit". So, I must be, as said, be making a Windows 10 backup.

    wbadmin start backup backupTarget: D: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet

    : D: external HDD could be another drive-letter.
