Hi everyone!

My edition of Macrium is professional its version is :5.3 B:7310

I am faced with this error whenever trying to create a full backup of my "Windows 10 Operating System" partition.

Error shown me while creating a full backup for Operation System along with Healthy Recovery Partition

I tried both from the bootable Rescue Media or from withing the installed Macrium Reflect app.


When creating the backup by selecting only the operating partition C:, I see there is another partition checked automatically with the C partition. That partition isn't assigned with a letter and commented with healthy recovery partition. I don't think I created by myself.



This is the log file of the first error I was faced with:
