SSR2013 no scheduled backup of UEFI partition
Trying to schedule a backup of system drive c on a regulary basis.
C contains win8 x64 uefi install. C is located on a SSD. On the same SSD there are also hidden partitions.
Partitionlayout: 300MB Win8 recovery partition, 100 MB Fat32 EFI Systempartition, C-Drive
In Diskmanager it is not possible to assign a drive letter to the recovery or EFI partition.
In SSR2013 i define a volume backup of drive C. In the next screen SSR2013 recommends to add also to this backup the other two partitions. (Regarding the physical partition layout the SSR2013 list of partitions are ordered by size? (1. Efi, 2. Recovery partition))
This seems to be correct.
I hit continue.
Now the next screen shows the recovery type: It is not possible to create a set! It is only possible to create an independent backup!
A Message tells me that i can't create a set because of a hidden partition which has no Driveletter assigned.
If i deselct the EFI-Partition and only the recovery partition and the C-partition is selected i can create a backup set - so the problem is the Efi-partition. I deselect the Efi-partition select the other parameters -do initial backup - no problem at all. The hidden recovery partition and drive c was backuped.
Now i changed the backup definition and added the Efi-Partition - which is accepted. Also the Drives are shown correct: Recovery (*:\);(*:\);System (C:\).
I now do again a backup - a new full backup is done - but without the Efi-Partition.
I tried then to define a backup from the Efi-Partition only. SSR2013 is asking me if i want do add this backup to an already definded backup - i select yes, selected the C-Drive backup - which is accepted. Doing a backup will not safe the Efi-Partition.
I defined now a new backup from the efi partition allone, not adding to the other backup. I can't create a backup-set on regulary basis - so i chose an independent backup. I started the backup manually - voila: Efi-Partition was saved.
Question: How do i do a backup of a full harddrive with all partitions on it on a regulary basis? (Like SSR2013 is recommending it) and other solutions are doing it?
