I've never cared for MS backup system....I would use a free service (software) to do that. Next you need to make sure that the drive to be used as the backup is the same size as the data on the drive that is to be backed up. That 14 GB is no where near close to use as a back up.

Just back up to that drive using your computer’s built-in backup features. On Windows 10 and 8, use File History. On Windows 7, use Windows Backup. Back Up Your Computer to an External Drive here: http://lifehacker.com/5816453/how-to-back-up-your-computer.
Pros: backing up is cheap and fast. Cons: If your house gets robbed or catches on fire, your backup can be lost along with your computer, which is very bad.

You can also use a Cloud storage service or try some free backup software, EaseUS todo backup free and Acronis is recommended.
