    System Image error after moving OneDrive folder to D: drive

    I have recently moved the location of my OneDrive folder to the D: drive.

    When I use "Windows Backup and Restore (Windows 7)" to create a system image I get the following message prior to completion:

    Backup skipped backing up D:\OneDrive\Documents as it is on the backup target.

    Is this because for some reason the D: drive is now being included in the system image?
    If so, how do I stop it?

    Any help appreciated.

    If you move any of the Windows "Libraries" to another Drive , Windows automatically includes that drive in the system image so it can Restore Windows if needed.

    System Image - Create in Windows 10 - Page 15 - Windows 10 Forums

    I have since switched to using Macrium Reflect Free for this reason.
