    If that fails to work, you can turn to a 3rd-party tool to backup system in a much easier way.
    The built-in Windows backup utility has proven itself to be very unreliable when it comes time to restore it. Unfortunately, that's when most users discover the backup has failed - when something happens and they are required to restore it and it won't.

    True. I've used it for years and learned to avoid it's little 'quirks' that can make a restore fail - but none of them are obvious. Microsoft said a year ago that you should use something else...

    Macrium Reflect (Free) is a good one to try.

    Yes Macrium will work on Windows 10 x64. I use Macrium and I have Windows 10 x64. I would suggest you take a few minutes to read through this tutorial to better understand Macrium:

    Great that you've noted the value of disk imaging.

    Please note that Windows 10 consists of more than 1 partition - 4 for EFI.
    If you click the button on the left, all the relevant partitions should be selected automatically.

    You can of course image any disk or partition or combination thereof.

    It also is extremely slow.
