What is System Image?

It is a file or we can say set of multiple files, which carries all of your data, present on your hard drive or just from a single partition. Windows provides a separate feature for creating a system image file, through this program, you can copy every single bit from the system and use it for restoring your PC.

System image file captures all the data available on your PC at any time. It means that if you have data of around 500 GB out of 1TB hard disk, the image file will occupy the same size of around 500 GB. Various system image software tries to compress the image file up to maximum, but not too much. In Windows 10, the Settings menu is lacking the system image backup utility.

Tech giant Microsoft introduced this feature in the Windows 7. It tried hiding it in Windows 8.1 as well as Windows 8. The company still tries to hide it in the Technical Preview in Windows 10, but it's mentioned in the Recovery section under the Update & Recovery tab, you can find it in Advanced startup.
