Windows 10 is installed on
/dev/sda2 and I assume that
/dev/sda1 is a hidden partition from the same Windows system.
How can I backup my Windows 10 installation from Linux in order to restore it later?
Further data upon request:
- By "Installation" I mean the "full partition" (or partitions) required to return Windows to the moment the cloning was made.
- Being able to restore to the same system (computer, hardware) and even hard drive would enough. I.e: I installed Windows 10, made backup, and a few months ago I want to restore the backup I made, so there is no need to perform the full installation of Windows 10 (drivers, printers, programs...etc) again.
Tested until now (all tests performed on the same computer with the same partition layout):
