    Depends on whether there is a "system" partition,.
    Some manufacturers have them.
    Try just C drive and test restore to a new bare metal HDD.
    If it does not boot you need to backup more partitions.

    As for backup media try the folloing: external usb disk drive,
    thats what I use with no problems thus far.
    Other on this forum have had dramas with them but I have been lucky
    so far. Local computer fair should have them at a realistic price.
