For that particular case it is a good idea. Maybe someone can come up with a way to do that.

Send a PM to SIW2. He is an expert in finagle stuff like that.

Yes. But why??? I assume you want at least a confirmation like "Do you really want to restore?"

Hi

Like I said I would like to make it as quick and dummy proof as possible. Yes one prompt are u sure u want to do this would be ok but I am looking for this to be as plug and play, quick and easy for a user that needs to restore the pc back to factory default as possible. Please if u know how let me know. Thanks.

The WinPE can go on a Fat32 stick, but the Macrium images themselves require NTFS.
With latest Macrium Free I made a WinPE USB. It's a 32 GB FAT32 stick. Later I did an image and just saved to a folder on the stick. Macrium automatically wrote the image using max 4 GB files. Nothing to it.

I can not get the box that I check unattended mode in diskrestore to pop up. is that because I do not have the paid version of Macrium installed and only the free version?
