    If you simply want to copy a partition try:

    If you want to back up your O/S, then time and again disk imaging is endlessly recommended here- e.g. Macrium Reflect (free).
    Far better and more efficient to use disk imaging than making odd copies by hand.

    Use Macrium Reflect and make a full OS image backup.

    In the top picture, you will have 3 or 4 partitions check marked, unlike my setup.
    And for destination you will have the drive letter of your backup drive.

    I know that dalchina has already provided one solution, but here is another, just to give you more than one choice:

    You could download and install the free version of Macrium Reflect which is available here:

    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

    Instructions for cloning a disk can then be found here:

    Uh-uh -- two.

    a. Copy the partition - the literal question asked.
    b. Disk imaging with Macrium

    I didn't bother to explain further as (b) is guessing the question.
