    Oh well, I created a recovery image on the USB drive, though. That should suffice, right? I won't need two images, I presume?

    Yes, I did that on my external HD but I am not able to create a system image and getting the above mentioned error.

    OK, was able to change the partition settings and create a system image on my external HD as well. Made another one on a flash drive as well just to be safe.

    Can I safely uninstall dell backup & recovery software? I believe I won't need it now?

    Perhaps you could use Macrium to back up your system to an external drive and your data to 2 flash drives as a precaution.

    I would keep an initial system backup as baseline and do periodic ones if you cannot do incremental ones.

    Macrium free is ez and reliable and having two flash drives, chances are both failing at the same time are slim.

    Then there is always 'file history' where your libraries are backed up, per your choice. You could use this with Macrium; one for system and one for files.
