Hi whs

Thanks for making that file readily available.

I use the Linux Disc, but it won't restore images from my USB HDDs.
This means that I have to copy the image to one of my internal HDDs or to my friends Linux PC and use the network restore option.

Do you know if this version works with Macrium 4 (I don't like the Macrium 5 GUI)?
Does it restore images from USB HDDs?

Yes V5 of the WinPE CD will restore images made with v4. It is far better than the Linux disk at locating USB drives.

You are welcome Steve. I think you are right. It works only correctly when you are signed in.

As Keith said it will work with V4 images and USB sticks and HDDs. But you will be facing the same V5 GUI that you do not like. I personally think it is nicer and easier than the V4 GUI.

Thanks for that info.

The reason I don't like it is, I take screenshots of the Macrium partition list (when I make my images).
The "old" version had a nice table layout.
The "new" version (the version I tried) has rectangles spread horizontally across the screen, which makes comparisons more tedious.

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,
