Wish it were that easy. Yes, I formatted the Corsair 128GB flash drive with NTFS. The problem is that when using the Windows 'System Image' backup, it sees the Corsair flash drive as a 'removable drive' and gives an error message that the image can't be saved there. Working with tech support, I've mentioned old forums talking about the RMB (removable media bit) that can be 'flipped' with Lexar drives but apparently can't be with Corsair drives. If it could, the flash drive would 'appear' to Windows 10 (or other version for that matter) as a FIXED --not removable-- drive and would allow backup. This is a pain since I can easily backup a windows 'system image' to a 1 or 2 TB external drive (which obviously aren't fixed and are removable too, like the flash drive). Just a quirk with this procedure. Looking for a workaround (other than having to use 3rd party backup software, such Macrium or Acronis).
