What is the 'Backups Windows...' menu for?

Searching the Help Pages and the Forum has proven to be unhelpful* and the Online Help doesn't seem to state what exactly is being backed up, ie is it just the Windows installation or is it the volume that Windows is on.  Also, what happens in the event of a Restore, does the Windows get restored or the volume?

​Some clarify would be appreciated.

* The forum gives over 500 replies, none of much help​​ and if you do an 'exact' match for "Backup Windows..." - the actual menu, ZERO results found :/ 

Cheers

p.s. Admins - re my last post (CBT) the search is actually working... just painfully slow!​​​​​​​​​

Hi Nick
Thanks for the reply but sadly none of that helps.
That page is (seems to be) just a statement of facts about Windows Partitions, ​rather than what Reflect is doing.
Also it doesn't answer my query​ of what is actually being backed up and what happens in the event of a restore and to top all of that, the Menu's are wrong anyhow!  I see it's been a while since the linked page was updated so perhaps a refresh of the topic and menus is in order?

From the top of the article:

This article explains which partitions are automatically selected when selecting 'Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows'.


It's not out of date, that's the side bar button, not a menu, and is the same option as the 'Backup Windows..' menu option. Sorry for the confusion, 

The article explains in detail which partitions are selected for backup when the option is taken. Basically, It's every partition that has the 'Windows' icon shown on it in the disk layout. When restoring you can choose which partitions to restore or select them all. It's up to you. 


Kind Regards

Thanks for the update - my menu reads as "Backup Windows..." not the one in the article and so with respect, it probably is out of date. Actually the menu on the article is a​ better explanation of what is going to happen rather than just "Backup Windows..." so perhaps its worth putting that back Smile  Cheers.

Glad it's clear now.

The article isn't out of date, it's showing the side bar button. This is the same option as the 'Backup Windows..' menu option. Sorry for the confusion.
