    Hello,

    I have encrypted my system drive with BitLocker. During encryption BitLocker created a 340 MB drive. I don't know what for.

    When taking image, DriveSnapshot only offers one drive at a time. So I chose the C system drive leaving out the 340 MB drive to backup. But when backuping up system using AOMEI Backupper, both the C drive and the 340 MB drives are automatically chosen and backed up.

    Now should I also backup the 340 MB drive using DriveSnapshot? If so, which drive would I need to choose to restore first- C drive or 340 MB drive to ensure proper system restoration with the BitLocker safely encrypting the system?

    Any suggestion, explanation and advice would be heartily welcomed. :)

    Best Wishes,
