    We would need a screenshot of your disk management window to be sure. There is usually a small partition that contains boot files in addition to the large OS partition that must be backed up in order for a full restore to be possible.

    Yes, my question is: is it necessary to create backup from this small partition in addition to the large os partition (c: )?

    Hi Alireza01,

    You can create a full image of Windows using the command below in CMD or PowerShell.

    wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:E: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet

    E reffers to your external HDD, could be a different drive-letter.

    And we can't answer that until we get a clue as to what that small partition is being used for, which a screenshot of disk management would give us.
