All drives in system image?

I am looking for help regarding making a system image.

Sins Windows 7 I have been using the windows create system image, but after updating to build 1809 in Windows 10, I can't do that anymore, and I have given up on fixing the problem, so I looked on the web and found AOMEI Backupper, and it is working, so that's all good.
But I can't make the image the way I'm used to, and that's why I have come here to ask for help.

When I was using the Windows create system image I could always add another disk to the image, beside the system, in this case, I want to include my E drive, but I can't find that option when using AOEMI System Backup.
Is it not possible or do I have to not use the System Backup but rather the Disk Backup? If I can only do it using Disk Backup it seems like I could potentially mess-up if/ when I need to restore, as it says I need to restore these disks one by one.

How do I go about using AOMEI Backupper when I want another disk saved while using System Backup, so if I ever need to restore, I get it all as it was when I made the backup?




  • If you have only C and E besides the hidden system partitions, you can make a disk backup.
    if E is on another physical disk or the main disk has more partitions you don't want to backup, you can make a system backup and a separate partition backup of E.

  • Yes, I just deleted the first backup I made, and will try this.

    I have a C, D and E drive, C and E are on 2 separate SSD's and the D drive is a HHD drive where I store backup and all other things I want to save.

    I was just hoping it was possible to make a system backup just as easy as with Windows.

  • @Bureso,
    If you just switched to Win 10 from 7, you do know that the Win 7 imaging is still available???
    Go to Settings, Updates and Security, Backup. You'll see the Win 7 option in the middle of the page.
    If that's what you were using you still can. If it was something else just do what JohnnyboyGo said.

    I know, I have used it for years in Windows 10 also, but it's not working now, giving me a error I have spend hours trying to solve (I can't remember the error code, as it's on my other PC) but I simply gave up...

    It all happened after I was not able to install a part of a windows update for build 1803, and I read that I should try to manually update to the latest build 1809, and as I wanted that pc to have as little bloat ware, I used this tool Windows10Debloater.ps1 but it may have made unwanted changes, but I'm not sure.
