I'm using crystal disk info. I was originally using the software to check my old hard drives but my m.2 ssd says 95% good on the status bar. It's a WD black NVMe 500gb m.2. It's about a year old.

Is this anything to be worried about? It's a pretty expensive drive or atleast it was. I paid $120 for it. Since it's my C drive, should I back it up? I might be wrong, but I dont think you can copy/paste windows.

Data should ALWAYSbe backed up. No matter what the "drive health" might report as.

And yes, you can absolutely do an Image of the C drive including "windows".
That is the basis of my whole backup routine.

What software would you recommend to do this? I'm currently using minitool partition wizard
