    Hello
    Why is my backup only 1.55 gb when my C drive uses about 35 gb.
    Thanks

    What application did you use to create the backup?

    If you did not include a system image, the backup only backs up files in the user profiles, and the Libraries. Files in the system folders like Program Files and Windows will not be included:

    Click Start | Help and Support and search on How does Windows choose which files to back up? for more info.
