Hi jasper and welcome to seven forums

Are you trying to pick the source drive or the destination? Your source is the OS drive and you should store it (destination) on a different drive. thats why it will not let you pick C as destination

EDIT:

I also get the following error when opening system and security - find and fix problems: there was a problem starting werconcpl.dll.

Maybe this has someting to do with my first thread?

thank you,

werconcpl.ddl is either a corrupt system fileor it could be a virus. probably the former, unless you dont have a working antivirus.

just to make sure you can run a system file checker ( in cmd sfc /scannow). Just make sure you have a backup in case
