I have read a great deal of documentation on Windows backup but I am still not sure if I understand something very basic correctly. It has been my impression that when I select "Create a System Image" from the "Backup and restore screeen" that absolutly every file on my local hard drive ( my boot drive) is being backed up. I say, this has been my understanding, but I'm beginning to wonder if my understanding is correct.
My hope would be that if I create a system image, and needed to do a restore, and had not added any files since creating the image (of course this is a hypothetical scenario), I say, my hope is that if I did the restore I would have every file on my boot hard drive, not just files related to the registry, but every file, data, installed programs, the whole hard drive. Is this correct?
