Creating a System Image

How to Create a System Image

In Windows 10, go to All Settings -> Update and Security (scroll to bottom) -> Backup -> Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7). This will open the desktop control panel for Windows 7 Backup and Restore.

In U-Recover, right-click (or long press) inside the app and a popup menu will appear. Select Full Backup and Restore. This will open the desktop control panel for Windows 7 Backup and Restore.

  1. In the control panel for Windows 7 Backup and Restore, click or tap on the tab Create a System Image (upper left).
  2. Select the hard disk, USB drive, SD drive, BD drive, or network location to store the image.
  3. Click or tap on Next.
  4. The System Partition and the C: disk will be automatically selected. (You can add other disk volumes if you wish.)
  5. Click on Start Backup to create the image.

After the image is created you can later click or tap on the tab Mount (top) in U-Recover to mount the newly created image as a temporary disk letter (for example, E:). The temporary volume will be read-only.
