That's normal, a lot of files are in use by windows etc. That's not what imgburn is for. That's what specially designed backup software like acronis true image or macrium reflect are for.

You're using imgburn in a way it's not intended or can be used

What you'll have is a massive archive of all allowed files, but they're relatively useless for restoring Windows to a working condition.  It won't be a bootable system so Windows would not start if you had to restore everything.  Restoring everything wouldn't get your applications back or restore your user settings.  And some files couldn't be restored to their original location anyway because they're in use at the time by Windows.

 

I've been a satisfied user of Macrium Reflect since version 4 and it's currently in version 7, so several years.  Acronis soured me to its product from years of successive Rescue Media that would conveniently "forget" USB HDD's were connected, but only AFTER deleting the target partition for restore, resulting in a useless application.  :o
