  2. Disk E show as System in Creating System Image

    Hi,



    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    Since you are try to create system image backup on the same drive, its not showing you the option to select the partition. I would suggest you to connect an external hard drive or CD/DVD and then create a system image backup.

    The system image is exactly like the mirrored copy of the Operating System which contains the configuration of the Operating System. When you create backup system image your windows 10 comes back to the same position at when the image was created earlier.

    How to Make a System Image Backup in Windows 10:

    1. Click Start menu button at the desktop and extract out the Control Panel.

    2. Just tap over the hovering of File History option from the right side of the screen.

    3. Go to the System Image Backup option which takes few seconds in searching and locating at the left bottom side of the screen under the Recovery.

    Note: A system image can be used to restore your PC while your hard drive or PC stops working and due to which you can’t able to choose individual items to restore.

    4. You find a dialog box appears in which you have to choose On a hard disk
    radio button to restore the windows 10 system image recovery. Alternatively, you can also select
    On one or more DVDs or On a network location radio button.

    If you have inserted a hard drive in the port of your PC choose On a hard disk.

    5. Press on Next button.

    6.You will get an information like the spaces available or not on the selected drives where you want to recover the system image. After getting confirmation about your selected drive, click
    Next.

    7. Click Start backup under the Confirm your backup settings
    to continue the recovering process.

    8. Back to the Create a system image box and tap Close, when you are sure that the system image has been recovered.

    And wait for some time until the Windows 10 system image is created on your PC.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    Built-in Windows backup and restore has proven to be notoriously unreliable. We recommend Macrium Reflect Free.

    No matter which backup program you use, though, you need to have a USB flash drive or DVD containing the recovery part of the program so if your hard drive crashes you boot from the recovery drive in order to restore the image to a new drive. And make sure to test the recovery - both so that you know how to boot the computer from it and that it works (at least the computer will boot into the recovery program, you don't have to go all the way and do a recovery).

    I have one other question.Took your advice and using Macrium Reflect.I made the image and did everything they recommend.I chose not to set a schedule because it's not important in my case.I will update it once a month.That's the question,should it be an incremental backup.I don't understand what that means or what it does,thank-you.

    If your intent is only once per month, a full image backup is recommended. Incrementals save only what has changed since the last full. After a month, the incremental would be almost the same size as a full anyway. No advantage to an incremental after a month's worth of changes, and it would greatly increase the restore time, if needed.

    Side note: Weekly, at a minimum, is better than monthly. Full Image.
