Macrium Installation

Hello Forum,
Recently downloaded "Macrium User Guide.pdf" and started studying, some info could not find, I am a little confused and much headache, so before starting the installation, I am going to ask you experts some (may be silly questions - don't laugh) questions:
1. What media to make the rescue / boot disk - a CD or DVD, and while creating shell I be online or can
it be offline. (Have the PE 3.1 in zip file)
2. Where to store the backup / image, on a disk (naturally other then the system) or on a DVD.
3. Shell I make a restore point before installing Macrium, and what to do with older restore points, I usually
keep some and delete the older ones.
4. Besides Macrium backups, shell I continue with the Windows maintenance making restore points.
Well, I think this is enough, and I'll wait for the answers.
Much appreciated.
Thanks
Motim

Hi -- No. 1 == I think it is a CD, but if that doesn't work, you will know it. Download the Macrium Program and then you can go offline or online and make the Rescue Disk. -- Be sure and boot your PC with the Rescue Disk just to make sure it works.

No. 2 == I purchased an external drive that I keep my Macrium Images on. Just keep them until your space fills up and then delete the older images as you add new ones.

No. 3 == You don't have to make one before install Macrium, but could if you want. Do not delete any Restore Points. Windows 7 will delete them as the space wills up.

No. 4 == Yes you need the Restore Points and your Macrium Images. They are not the same.

Hi,
I concur it's a lot easier than it reads

All you need to know is here,
Imaging with free Macrium

Although the restoring the C drive and 100mb system reserved partition is a tad different

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
