Hi, I know that this program GFI Backup 2012 is old and discontinued but I still use it as I find it excellent. I just have one question which I hope somebody out there can answer !!!

I want to make a backup of ONLY my Windows operating system but when I try to create a new backup it seems that I can only back up the entire C drive. Would anyone know how I can set up a backup to only copy the Operating System etc. ??? IWhen I try choosing from the "Source"tab on a New Backup I get shown all the folders on my C drive where, I presume, my operating system is stored. So, how do I identify where the Windows OS partition is so that I can make a backup. Up till now I have done this using Macrium Reflect Free but I understand that they will soon be discontinuing this program so I would like to do it using GFI backup Freeware.

Hopefully someone can help.
