    Save Windows 10 + Drivers


    Hello guys.

    I recently bought a new laptop which has Windows 10 installed. I would like to know if there's a way to save my windows with my current drivers on a 32Go usb key. I tried to do it with a system image but it says that the usb key isn't supported. Sorry if that's not the exact same words as windows gives, it's because my windows is in French.

    Thanks

    I use: Macrium Reflect Free
    for backups, it's free too.

    You need to make a bootable CD/USB with it, when you want to return to backed up system, you boot with it and it will return everything as it was at the moment backup was made.

    Okay, I'll give it a try then. Do I have enough space with a 32Go usb key ? I guess it depends on the space that my Windows takes ? Does it compess the image ? Thanks again for the replies

    Edit: Does it saves all my data or only windows with my drivers ?

    It makes backup file somewhat smaller than space used on disk/partition(s).
