Paragon stupid question

Hi all,

 

I have installed Paragon Backup and recovery 2014 Free and have "The fear". So many times before with various different programs, I have been diligent with backing up my C Drive. But when it corrupted and I tried to restore, it failed for some reason or another and I lost everything. killcomp.gif.pagespeed.ce.-vKHI2f3xIbuDZ

 

So. This time I want to get it right! I am at the backup screen and I am planning to do a full backup (i.e. not incremental or differential) of my computer's hard drive. I have partitioned the drive into 2 drives - C drive and F drive (which is where I want to put the backup on until I can get my hands on an external drive). So. The options I'm given by Paragon of the hierarchy of folders I want to back up are (they are different colours too, as indicated):

 

 

   -System                 NTFS

   -NO NAME            (OEM service volume)

   -Local Disk            

   -C:                         NTFS

   -F:                         NTFS

   -Local Disk            NTFS

   -Recovery             NTFS

 

 

To back up the C: drive to the F: drive, do I simply select C:? Or do I also need to include some of the other ones??

 

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks!

Backup both C and System. System contains the boot data

Thank you Essexboy! Maybe that's where I was going wrong before. I always get nervous putting my faith in computers though :)

No problem, I use Macrium myself and I have many a time needed the backup due to the way I mistreat my system :)

But, as long as those two partitions are imaged you should be OK
