    MR can make an image of any partition it can see, internal or external.
    Actually, I have mislead. It will not do it for removeable drives (sd cards, usb flash drives etc.). It does work iirc for external drives marked as fixed drives.

    Thanks for the inputs, guys! I managed to make an image of the disk, using an external USB case, MR complained about the MBR being corrupt, but running chkdsk solved the issue and the copy was successful. It was fast too, lasted like... 15 mins making the copy.

    I tested the image (apliying it to a Virtual Hard Disk) and played around with a virtual machine, and it booted into the OS (although it caused a clock watchdog timeout crash, which I'm certain it's because of the drivers the image contains, which are specific of a real PC and not a VM, other VM's I have cause no problems)

    Now I can wipe that disk, to store this, and many more disk images, to feel more secure about unexpected problems (or unwanted updates sneaking to the system and messing up the OS XD)

    Thanks so much for your help!!

    Just a little update, seems my laziness caused me some trouble, I just made a rescue media and a windows 10 x64 VM, tested the rescue image, all is fine and no BSODs.

    Thanks so much for all your help!

    Hi all,

    I only have one partition on my computer, the OS and all my other files (videos, pics, etc) are on the same partition.

    Is it possible to make a Windows system backup without including my other files from that same partition? I only want to backup OS and program files.

    Thanks

    No - it is all or nothing if using Free version.

    Regulars here generally recommend partitioning drive with OS+Progs on one partition and data on another, so you can do exactly what you want. This keeps the Macrium Reflect backup image more lean and mean. The data partition can be backed in a variety of ways ranging from simple manual copying through to scheduled automatic backups.
