When I watched TV in the UK I heard a lot of different dialects. The one from Northern Ireland was quite difficult to understand.

Keep in mind that English is a mongrel language evolved (more like devolved; sadly the devolution continues today) from Old English (actually, Old High German), Middle French (itself a mongrel of Norse, Latin, Gaulish, and Frankish), various Celtic languages, and Latin, amongst a plethora of other languages English freely plunders.

You would be surprised how many slang words and expressions in all of Ireland made it into the U.S.

Are you sure that Old High German got into it. I had to learn that for years but I do not find any traces in the English language. It would make sense though because that's probably what the Angles and the Saxons were speaking. And they settled in GB in the post Roman period.

On TV the accents are quite muted. In reality some are almost impossible to understand.

That's a plus for sure.

Lost the other multi-quote along the way, but I believe it was DavidE who answered my other question, pointing out that recovery media made with v5 cannot restore images made with V6.... And that's exactly what I wanted to know.

From other comments it sounded like recovery media made with v6 can restore images made with v5.... which would make sense.

And imho they should have made the imaging of v6 backwards compatible with recovery media created in earlier versions.... at least with v5.

Someone along the way also asked where I got the info of a recovery console, but I believe that was cleared up along the way. On the MR main page for v6 one of the benefits and new features mentioned is "no recovery media required" as you can restore images from a console (I assumed DOS-based that would come up as an option if the drive wasn't booting). But that's a guess. Now I understand one can alternately use media as well/instead of...

A final question...

Are there any compensatory cloud features, ads, or other W10-type functioning in v6? If it is not a non-cloud, stand-alone program, I am personally not interested in changing over.

Anecdotally, was great to see so many FFS users... been a user for many years... keep all data off the C drive, and use FFS nightly to backup the days work to a mem stick, in between monthly MR BUs of all partitions. Also use it for my Music and Archive drive to sync to external BU drives, as it's quicker than MR for mirroring those.

And btw someone referred to me as a 'he' which is reasonable considering my name, but I am a 'she' - not that it matters, but FTR.

Absolutely sure. Old High German (the original Old English) came over to England via the Saxons, Angles, Jutes, Danes (the original Danes did not occupy the Jutland peninsula back then), etc. and quickly crowded out and merged with much of the original Celtic languages along with the invasive Latin. Norse (forgot to mention that one) came over with the Vikings and was also integrated into the language. The Norman invasion brought in Middle French, which became Middle English. Early Modern English came about roughly in the 15th century.

Old English only very vaguely resembles modern English. The pronunciations and spellings of the original words have changed dramatically in most cases. Some that still are easily recognizable are land, house (haus), etc.

The oldest extant examples of Old English is Beowulf. If you read a word for word copy of it, it is pretty much indecipherable to English speakers though German speakers may have an easier time of it. Keep in mind that modern High German has evolved devolved considerably from the Old High German.

An excellent book on how present day English came to be is The Mother Tongue - English And How It Got That Way. It's actually a fascinating read.

MR does not use the cloud.

Don't feel bad about being called a "he". I get it all the time, even with "Lady" in my user name, mostly on other forums. One thing that doesn't help on other forums is the predominance of men using female avatars. Do they not know the meaning of avatar?

Just to be clear, I didn't think it would for storage, but does it use any cloud-related service like even ad-serving or something... does it even offer to "save settings in the cloud" or serve up notices for upgrades or anything like that? (Yes I could install it in the sandbox and see for myself but as long as so many people here are already using it, thought I'd just ask.)

LOL at getting called a "he" even with Lady in your name. That's really lazy! I don't care but don't want to be misleading if it actually comes up and I don't respond, so... if someone mentions it I will correct, otherwise... non-issue. Doesn't really matter who anyone is ... we're all just here to help and learn.

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,
