    How big is the file system you are trying to back up?

    I assume the destination disk is formatted with NTFS ?
    When you say blank disk, I also assume it is not just a raw partition ?

    It's NTFS.Meanwhile I saw that it wants to save all my partitions.
    I wish only to backup C as my program files are on a separate partition.
    But there is no option :

    I thought that Windows 10 system image only creates an image for the entire drive and not for individual partitions?

    That is what ddinc's problem is. He can't backup just 1 partition with Windows 10 imaging. But Macrium Reflect Free will image individual partitions.

    And compress them, my whole C: drive is 42+GB in use from 512Gb, but my Macrium image is only 21.3GB.

I have a Samsung 700T tablet (think Surface Pro). It only as a 128GB SSD, but I read about a trick Surface Pro owners use to add extra storage. You format an SD card as NTFS, don't give it a drive letter, then map it to a folder on your C: drive....
