Creating a System Image in Windows 10 version 1803

  tallboy 15:09 15 Jun 2018

I have just installed the April 2018 update on my 64-bit Windows 10 system. Whilst the update went without a hitch, I am now unable to create a System Image of my 'C' drive using Windows. Whilst the Settings option still allows you to go to the 'Create Image' function and it searches for a suitable external drive, all the 'tick' boxes are greyed out so you can not unselect any of them. (In my system one of my data drives is also ticked, which I don't want, but you can't un-select it.)

Have Microsoft now removed all Imaging capability or is there an un-documented way of creating an image without resorting to O&O's Image tool or Acronis True Image?. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.
