Problem restoring system C: backed up by Backupper
I am a Windows 10 user and recently started evaluating Backupper. I wanted to backup my whole system drive C: to enable me to restore in the future if Ihad a problem. I was a little confused by the 3 possible backup methods, viz "System backup" "Disk backup" and "Partition backup". The documentation did not prove very helpful in making my choice and
telling me about the possible consequences in respect of a future restore. Eventually settled on the first, "System backup". All went well and I carefully preserved the backup file.
Today I had a problem with the system and I decided I needed to restore this backup. I successfully booted in a CD and located my backup file on disk and requested a full restore. I was taken aback when it told me it was unable to restore my system and I would need to change my C: (system partition) into a logical partition. I found this extremely confusing as C: is my system partition and I was worried I might totally corrupt my system by doing this. I now notice that my hard disk drive has two hidden partitions. At the time of doing the backup I ignored these as it was only my System (C:) that I felt needed backing up and the documentation was not specific about this. I am wondering whether, instead of doing a system backup, I should have taken one of the alternative two backup options "Disk backup" and "Partition backup".
I am now totally stuck. Can anyone please help and suggest a way out of this problem?
