As I added to my post I might have initially created it with 0.0.2.4 maybe that's the difference.

I think it must be as your whole usb is set out slightly different.Ive got a copy of 0.0.2.5 here im going to have a try with that.

No joy with that version doesn't include the HDCD menu again

Did you just add the ISO through the Yumi program or did you make alterations to the menu

I'm not sure what stage you are struggling with. I decided to stick with the grub4dos loader which predated the YUMI release.
Once you select the mini XP option in Hirens you get

Hello Mjf

Yes I've got it working fine in Grub4Dos just would have preferred it on my Yumi multiboot usb but in my case its not adding the files correctly.Thanks though.
Anyway I feel as though I've Hijacked this thread.
My Macrium works great and have a few recovery options so thats brill.

Danny,
I don't think you've hijacked the thread at all. It's relevant to the topic.
I'd still like to know the advantages of the YUMI bootloader approach (now that's hijacking).

Oh ok then lol I will carry on

I don't think there is an advantage with which method you use its just I'm tight and would prefer not to waste a 4gig usb on 500mb of Hirens files when I could use the whole usb with Yumi. That's the only reason really.Just nice to have everything in one place.

You don't necessarily need YUMI
I have Hirens and all the rest of this on my 4GB. Apart from the folders the ISOs are apps of course.

I'll leave it at that because I am starting to move off the thread topic.

Sorry if this question has been asked before but, I have watched the video here so I do have some idea of what I am doing with Macrium, it seems nice and easy, I just have one question....

I have taken an image of my system drive (I may do a secure erase on my SSD) and I want to be able to restore a completely working OS, just as it is now....I selected "system reserved" as well as "C", so I will be able to boot into it when it is restored.

I seem to remember something about including the MBR when you are doing the restore, I am guessing I say "yes"?

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,
