When running the system image, I was unable to locate the verify system image option. Did I just miss it or did they remove it??
Thanks for any assistance!

There is a verify option on the front screen of restore'

Thanks kado897,
You have confirmed what I have found, thanks. What I don't understand is that when I do a system image backup on a perfectly working system, it is at that point that I want to verify that the backup system image is verified to the correct image. Maybe I am slow, but I don't see the point of verifying the backup system image, to a broken image that you now NEED to restore. Sorry if I am missing something obvious. But please explain if possible. Appreciate your help!

It is still there in advanced settings when you create or edit the backup.

OK, so I was wrong...I didn't know the free Macrium would even let you put a WinPE disk together by using the WAIK, I always had the impression it only came with the Linux CD and BartPE plugin. I felt sure about this too.

Hello,
I am using the non-commercial freeware 64-bit version and I can not find the page you show. Mine will allow verifying the filesystem before backing up to a system image, but no verification of the backed up system image to the actual data. Confused!
Still can't understand verifying the data during a restore??
Thank you for your help! Any ideas???

I am using the PRO version but even so I am surprised. In the PRO version it is on the second image definition screen. The one before you press Finish.

Yeap, looked there also, no luck. Sent email to Macrium for clarification. Hopefully I am just unable to find it. Oh well! Thanks again!

I get confused easily between 'restore' and 'backup' copies of my computer. When I make a whole backup,I do it for JUST the data on my computer,mostly photos. I tried to do a System Image but 250 GB Iomegga wasn't big enough. My D: recovery disk is almost totally full, and I just cannot use it. I don't know how to delete anything on it either. I have a nice clean running, virus-free computer right now, with all shadowfiles gone (except for whatever is on that D ...and I would LIKE to make a system image of EVERYTHING on my computer now but ... I really am not sure HOW! Suggestions ? The Iomegga is too small, I guess but are there websites that offer storge that are trustworthy? I'min the Bush of Alaska and am out of DVDs (got a few 700 MB CDs around) so I can't just "pop in" anything! It'll be a week or so before I get any freight in. Thanks!

I think you are talking about Windows imaging if I'm right? This thread is about Macrium imaging but no matter. Based on what you say you probably want some advice on online backup facility for North America. Unfortunately I can't help here but if someone doesn't notice your thread stick it in the main Backup & Restore section.
You will need a decent bandwidth data link for this to be worthwhile.
