Make folders/subfolders on external for image files?

Hi. Curious.
Do you make folders/subfolders on the external drive for the image files to identify them from the others? Such as month/date/partition, etc..? I know macrium dates and label them as well.
Dont plan on putting anything else on the extrernal..yet.

Can I move the ones I've already created into folders and macrium will find them using browse?

thanks

yes, you can put macrium images anywhere.

as you say, you just have to browse to them.

i like to name mine as well.

nice, wish I had done that at too at the beginning, kept a paper list though.
I did all partitions in the first one. Would have been nice to label them.

you should still be able to rename the image files after they've been created.

I keep a text log of all the changes made to my system excluding daily updates for anti-virus and other such updates but including all software installs and updates and software removal and any other tweaks or hardware changes. The filenames of my images, which are done every 1-2 weeks, reflect whether they are after OS updates, general software updates or just new images. The frequency really depends upon how easy it would be to reverse any changes made. I can always find an image going back about two months but mostly restoring the last image solves any problems I have had. I have restored many times using Macrium Refect free and all have been successful - not malware related I might add.



ps I have a separate partition just for images - on internal second drive and on external USB drive.
