Come on - it's not that messy. But it is an answer to a specific question often asked - "Given I use the inbuilt MS imaging how do I create multiple images etc."
Don't use Windows imaging is not an answer to the question.
I use Macrium as well and admit it gives you the ability for flexible image placement but still uses obscure naming. It also gives you flexibility in partition choice and appears robust in locating images. However, reimaging can be much slower than Windows imaging when restoring a medium size image say 40GB to a large partition 450GB (by a factor of 4!). It appears that Macrium wants to write to the remainder of the partition.
The only imaging I tried and got rid of was Paragon.
After looking at many MS imaging problems, incorrect image folder and or name is a trivial one to fix. Could MS have made their product more flexible in this regard - of course they could. This is not the big issue with MS imaging. The big issue is it's lack of robustness in locating valid vhd files
. Have one 16 byte MediaID file foul up and you've had it.
I find it interesting if you criticize MS imaging, that's ok (as it should be). Criticize MS indexed search and all the fans come out screaming (like MS imaging many have problems with it).
