How to create an image backup in Windows 10 and restore it, if need be

Robin Hayes plans to create an image backup of his C: drive using Windows 10’s own tools. But he’s not sure how he can restore that backup should disaster strike. I’ll cover both the backing up and the restoration.

An image backup copies everything on your drive—operating system, boot sector, programs, and data files—into one compressed but still very large file. If disaster renders your Windows installation useless, an image backup will allow you to get it up and running again quickly.

I recommend you create an image backup, saving it to an external hard drive, three or four times a year. This is in addition to the far more important daily file backup of your data.
