I always use the 'Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows' this is a bootable backup copy that can be restored from a BSOD crash through 'Win PE' of Macrium. Btw, I speak from experience as I've restored a copy of Windows 10 in this way and it works 100%, the only limitation is "that you have to backup your system either daily, weekly or whenever you back your system up or the paid version you can do a schedule backup.Which should I use for a weekly back-up, Clone or Image on a external drive for Recovery or HDD failure etc.
The simplest way is, open Macrium and click the option (as I said above) "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" and leave the marked partitions that Macrium selects and click "next", that is all you have to do, dont change anything! Dont worry about your other partitions as they are not taking up space for this backup but are necessary for a bootable backup!OK,
PC is a Dell 15- 3552 lapto windows 10 v1903
