    Can I make a system image of Windows 10?


    The other day I thought I'd made a system image of Windows 10, which is now my OS. But, I see it says "Backup and Restore (Windows 7)". So, did I just backup my previous OS then, and not my current OS? And if so, can I make a system image of my Windows 10 OS? Thanks.

    Okay. Also, I've just seen, doing another backup on another PC, that after you have backed up, you get a prompt about making a bootable CD ROM disc, and it tells me to mark it "Windows 10 32 bit". So, I must be, as said, be making a Windows 10 backup.

    I use this command in Powershell or command Line.

    wbadmin start backup backupTarget: D: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet

    : D: external HDD could be another drive-letter.
