Sure you can do that. You need to install Macrium on each PC. But you can put the images on the same external disk - suggest seperate folders though.

Many thanks for a very fast reply.

How can that be done, if automatic schedules are wanted to backup via a network ?.

It is 2 backups to be controlled and with for instance differential backups

I have an USB Network drive, that my 2TB harddrive can be connected to.

1. You can schedule it if you right click on the XML file. There you have a "schedule" option.

2. With free Macrium, you cannot do differentials or incrementals - only full images. If you want those, have a look at free Paragon.

3. Free Paragon may also work with network drives - not sure though.

I have made such schedules on the computer having paid for Macrium, and that has worked ok.

I have read that also, what you say, that with the free Macrium one cannot do differentials nor incrementals.

I will look for Paragon.

Many thanks for you help
