Hello everyone,

As you all are aware Windows 8.1 creates extra partitions to keep the boot files.
I've taken the backup of all those partitions including C drive using the save partition
option .As mentioned in other threads, for Win 8/10 backup and restoration backup disk and restore disk option is
recommended. But in some cases data on other partitions(D,E,F etc.) is just too much to be backed
up immediately.

Can anyone please help me with the expert mode options to be selected during restoration so that
Windows 8.1/10 boots smoothly after restoration without affecting data on other partitions??

Thank you much in advance.

You are using the built-in Windows backup / restore program, correct?  If yes, I do not know how to help.  When I use my Macrium Reflect 7 or Image for Windows, I make a full image of each partition onto external media.  If I need to restore the OS, the data partition is not touched.

You know, I totally forgot your thread title mentioned Clonzilla!  I was at school and was greatly distracted  :)
