    2 Partition system?


    I wanted to backup the partition C (Windows 10) but as you can see in the screenshot I have 2 partitions C: Sistem and E:Sistem.
    How can I make the E partition no longer a system? Please help me!!
    Sorry for bad english

    E is on separate disk, you don't need system on it. Can you translate what it says on it ?

    E is an "active logical partition".

    I don't know anything about logical partitions unfortunately but as C is active then E should be marked not (as you said).

    Perhaps they should try something like this:
    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.16299.15
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: X201
    
    DISKPART> select volume E
    
    Volume 3 is the selected volume.
    
    DISKPART> inactive
    
    DiskPart marked the current partition as inactive.
    
    DISKPART> exit

    I tried that with normal not logical partitions though. Perhaps it is different but it is worth a try in any case.

    Hi,

    That ought to work for a logical partition.
    Just for info: disk 0 contains two recovery partitions.

    It does but "Activ" is the interesting word. I think it means "Active"

    My Rumanian is pretty limited though - I can only remember the word "Draga" which means "Hello" (probably).

    Yes, Activ means Active.
    Fortunately for me I studied Latin and Greek so I can more easily figure out linguistic stuff when it comes to roman languages.
    It sure would help you with French as well. :)

    Always enjoy your postings @lx07.

    Resolved: I installed Origin (installer for games) in E. Origin has automatically installed me a folder in E with another Program Files. I uninstalled Origin, install Origin in C, restart PC, and Program Files of E disappeared. Now back-up work!!!
