    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.

    You have backed up your current Windows 10

    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.

    Hope this helps. Here is a link for more information: http://www.howtogeek.com/167984/how-...n-windows-8.1/
