I started using Macrium Reflect several years ago after making 512GByte FAT-32 disks that could dual-boot DOS and Windows XP for working on embedded systems. Figured out how to Defy Microsoft's artificial limits on FAT-32 drives, but it was not easy and took a long time to do. Used Macrium Reflect to image the Disk and make copies. It works.
I am also old enough to have run Stand-Alone backup for a VAX 11/780 using 8" floppies to boot and copy Disks to 9-track tape.
I also use Macrium Reflect to make stand-alone backups of the Disks in our home computers. Got serious about this with WIN10. Never know when a Microsoft Update will BRICK your computer. The last one bricked my HP I7 machine running WIN10. System restore failed, and system repair failed. That is because the last piece of code that Microsoft did right was DOS. Fortunately, I do all of my paid work on stand-alone computers dual booting DOS and XP.
I bought a 4TByte USB disk dedicated to stand-alone backups. I also keep images on a second USB drive.
SO- the next post on this thread will either be from my HP I7 using the restored image, or it will be from this one stating that the I7 machine has hardware problems.
If you don't use a stand-alone backup for your important computers, Macrium Reflect is free for home use. You can install it on a computer, and make a bootable CD/DVD with it. Some gotchas: use a USB2 port, not all USB3 ports are supported. I'll download the latest and see if it works- but may be a Windows CE limitation.
