    I should think there's a big difference. Backing up to USB will copy the installation files and critical files while copying the whole of drive C will copy everything there including user files, app files, programs files, data etc. The size will be considerably larger

    It requires reserved partition also when backing up Windows 10 to USB to make sure system bootable. If you only copy C drive, then it won't boot from USB.
