Create System Image in Windows 10 using PowerShell


  1. Correct syntax (spacing very important)

    wbadmin start backup -backuptarget:E: -include:C: -quiet -allCritical

  2. My Windows 8.1, in Control PanelSystem and SecurityFile History, does have the “System Image Backup” option built in.

  3. Hi, wbadmin is not Powershell commandlet, so you can run it from classic command prompt (cmd). PS is not necessary.

  4. Maybe a rewrite would be in order, as other pointed out.
    “System image backup” is there in: “control panel”->”file history”-> bottom left “System image backup”
    “wbadmin” can be run from command prompt

  5. I don’t remember in Windows 8, but Windows 10 has it, it called Backup and Restore (Windows 7), maybe it called the same in Windows 8.
