Windows 7: Imaging with free Macrium

I went to majorgeeks and D/L'd Macrium free.
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/deta...e_edition.html
Where it says "download location & options" when I click on options, it shows "Reflect installer & PE 4 components".

If I click on the drop-down menu, it gives the option to choose "Reflect installer & PE 5 components".

Which one do I want to use ?

Bob, go here instead, Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download It's from c|NET, but no BS like Major Geeks.

If you running 8.1 choose pe5. Wahtever os you are running, choose pe5. Might as well.

It won't include windows recovery/refresh options, whichever you choose.

The RE key is F9 - go figure. And yes, I can see the microSD card. I think the problem is the Macrium WinPE. I don't even know which OS they use on that WinPE.

Just saw a bunch of new postings and saw that you also found the F9. Let me read all that.

Got it from your link but, it is exactly the same thing.
The same option choices need to be picked.

Yes, I have 8.1, do I need to have the windows recovery/refresh options ?

If I do, how do I get them ?

Right - PE4 does not support 8.1

C-Net has become notorious for adding sneakware and other malware, especially Open Candy.

I used to recommend MajorGeeks but it appears they also have become donkey excavations like C-Net. I couldn't even get to the download page because I have their cookies and ads blocked. Secure them with a helical fastener!

I just checked FileHippo by downloading MR Free from them and scanning the file with Avast, MBAM, Spybot, and SAS; all scans came up clean.

I just downloaded FileHippo its titled Macrium Reflect.
Would like to confirm it is free Macrium ?

I know zero about imaging and have been following this thread since almost the beginning.

Thank you
