    System image W10,succesful, but loading onto ext H/D as data.

    Have had to replace my C/D hard drive.Then Download from Microsoft a replacement W10pro.Now when creating a system image (W7) the Windows system image box tells me, < system image created succesfully >. But viewing the ext hard drive , the system image appears as about 20%, and the rest of it appears as data.Advises, <No system image on this disc>.

    Hi, it's great you want to use images to protect your system. Everyone should, many discover that the hard way, alas.

    The verdict here is that we recommend the use of a 3rd party solutions e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage. I've not seen a thread I can recall where any problem related to Win 7 Backup and Restore has been resolved.

    Macrium is supported, current and maintained; Win 7 Backup and Restore is effectively not.
    3rd party solutions are
    - more reliable
    - more feature rich
    - current
    - more flexible.

    Macrium has been found to be one of the more reliable. I commend it to you. Others have suggested Veeam Endpoint Backup, and there are others of course.
