When setting up a backup on a Win7 machine, I choose the location to backup to and am then asked what I would like to backup. Instead of letting Windows decide, I choose the "Let me decide" option. I can then select folders or hard drives on the machine and there is also a tickbox for "Create system drive image" or something along those lines.
My question is, if I have decided to create a "system image", do I still need to choose to backup my system drive by checking it in the list of disks? Just seems odd that it is still an option if you are creating a system image. I guess its to do with how the data is backed up? I noticed the system image is a VHD. If anyone could confirm or deny this I would be grateful.
