I want to back up my C: drive (by creating an image of it, maybe?) onto my external harddrive, but the only way Windows 8 seems to want to do it is via 'File History', but that doesn't have the option to choose C:! I'm happy to manually back up my Data files (the only folders it wants to use File History for) and much prefer it so that I can keep track, so File History is completely redundant...

Windows Help is useless, as ever!


Thank you, Katie
