Usb 2.0 hdd?

If you are using a USB 2.0 external HDD it will take longer to save a backup image.

On my PC, for example:
  • Macrium Reflect normally images at ~50 MB/s
  • My USB 2.0 external HDDs only accept data at ~25 MB/s
I have multiple internal HDDs and I save my backup images to one of those.
I copy the images to the external HDD later (e.g. when I'm not going to use the PC for a while).

The Windows 7 imaging tool should allow you to select which drives (partitions) you want to image. You should see a dialog box similar to this screenshot (taken from a Seven Forums tutorial):



Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

In an ideal world that is what is supposed to happen. But if by chance you're not given the opportunity to choose, you may have to use a 3rd party imaging software. I can highly recommend Macrium Free. The steps and user interaface are a little different from Windows 7 but it's a more versatile program. And one of the Forum experts made a tutorial.

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

This is a ready-made Macrium WinPE rescue boot ISO - it will allow you to both create & restore images, without the need to install Macrium, or download the 1.7GB WAIK to create your own WinPE.
