Windows 7: Macrium reflect and USB3 problem

Macrium reflect and USB3 problem

Hi there
using the Boot media (WinPE) or Linux the restore fails when using a USB3 port

Image boots but then faisl to see the data.

Hi there

Test results

USB stick attached to a USB2 port. OK
USB stick attached to USB3 port. NOK===> Fail
USB3 Disk drive drive attached to USB3 port NOK <====== FAIL
USB3 Disk drive attached to USB2 port OK
USB2 Disk drive attached to USB3 Port NOK ==>FAIL
USB2 Disk drive attached to USB2 Port OK

On USB3 the program boots but doesn't see the image if it's on the same media when using a USB3 port.

Unfortunately the restore is quite slow on a USB2 port -- USB3 would speed it up by a factor of 10 but it doesn't work with a Full USB3 external drive attached to a USB3 port.

Anybody else had this and got a fix for it.

When you buy this program you get a Windows PE recovery download. Is Windows PE compatible with Windows 7 64 bit or is it only good on 32 bit systems.
