I carefully disconnected all my drives except my NVME C drive when I did a clean install of windows. My purpose was to have a single dedicated System drive. After installing and testing Win10, I hooked up my remaining SSD's and hard drives and proceeded to re-install all my other software.
Some of the software insisted on being installed on the C drive. (like Anaconda3, PyCharm, etc) .
After making sure my system was stable, I did a Windows Image Backup. I was hoping to just image the C drive (both partitions). Instead, the Backup routine insisted on imaging one of my other SSD's as well as the C drive.
In the past this has caused headaches when attempting to recover from a crash.
What's going on? and what should I do different?
