How to use PA to backup Windows 10 system
I just purchased AOMEI Partition Assistant a couple of hours ago. Which is similar to the Avanquest Partition Commander that I used to use back when dinasours walked the planet and XP was the standard OS.
Today we have something called "GPT" which is supposed to make life better but I'm beginning to wonder about that.
Two days ago, the local computer repair shop installed Windows 10 on my laptop. The display in AOMEI PA reveals that three additional partitions were created along with the system partition.
First question: To copy a Windows 10 system, do all four of those partitions need to copied?
Second question: PA brings up a dialog box about "migrating" the system. Doesn't "migrate" mean to move. I just want to backup the system NOT move it.
Third question: If my system goes down, how do I reinstall the backup copy? In the old days you made an emergency floppy. -CUT- I just noticed the "Make bootable media" option in PA. So I'm ready to try this whole thing out just as soon as someone can verify the best process of copying a Windows 10 system (and only the system) onto an external hard drive using AOMEI Partition Assistant.
