Reboot, load the BIOS, and ensure that USB booting is prioritized over hard drives. Glad you're backing up now, though – luck like that can't last forever. My system has 3 drives one is the operating system the others are storage.

But, for now I will go with Backupper (single purchase + free Lifetime upgrades). Macrium will show you the source drive you just selected and prompt you to select a destination.

You can "image" an entire small hard drive and store that image in a dedicated partition of a big hard drive, but here especially, I can't think of any compelling reason

And while a backup is running in the background you can even proceed using your system. Like Drive Backup Express, DriveImage XML applies a cloning technique that allows parallel use of the system while the backup is running. Then yesterday 2hrs and 8-mins.
