Backup and Restore Procedure

Post by oldman » Tue Sep 12, 2023 9:50 pm

Windows 10 machine, with C, D, and E: drives,
i created the image on E drive, including all partitions and files of the C drive onto the E drive.
Does this mean than i can restore my normal boot procedure if i should fail to boot, using that E:image?
or should i also and perhaps only create that image on a portable DVD device?
thank you in advance.

I don't quite understand whether the drives are physical hard drives (they don't have drive letters) or these are logical disks with disk letters (they are partitions themselves and don't have extra partitions).

You need to have a startup version and restore ALL partitions on the hard drive. This article may help: Computer Recovery and System Restore.

thank you, i eventually saw on the menu system the startup option and without registering, created it on a 32Gb flashdrive. but once i paid and registered, i was not able to duplicate it.
at the moment i have wiped a cd drive which is formatted in a non ntfs way, and am trying to figure out how to reformat it so that it will be usable by r-drive image app.
any further hints welcome!
thank you.

those drives are physical drives, not logical.
each one is described in the file explorer
but back to the original problem - i get an error
when trying to write to the usb flash drive, using the startup option -

I tried restoring ALL partitions on the hard drive but the same problem still occurs.
