    System Image with separate user accounts

    Just a quick question. Can I make a system image of recent Windows 10 install which has been set up with two user accounts (one is a child's account) with their own different set-ups, programs etc. If so - which account do I use to select to make a system image from. Just confused myself lol.

    Yes you can - a system image will include all accounts.

    Assuming the Adult is set up as an administrator and the child as a standard user it would make sense to use the Adults account.

    If you use the childs account you should be prompted for the Administrator users password. It is possible however that you have further limited the child's access and they don't get the option at all.

    If you get the option to make an image it will backup everything.
