OK thank you Keith will try that

My experience is that (free) Macrium automatically prompts me that an update is available and asks if I wish to download an update. I generally do and it runs a patch. I'm not sure if there is a default setting that needs to be selected but have never done this.
The update process happens quickly.

Agree.....just install the update - it patches the existing installation, so no uninstall and reinstall is required.

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,
