Windows 7: Macrium

USB3 is so new that there is probably no support yet - especially in the Linux recovery program. This is ashame because the USB3 would lend itself particularily well for imaging. But I am sure given time, we will get it.
But if I understand you right, the image was initially written to the USB3 disk - right?

Would be interesting to know whether Win7 imaging supports it. Maybe jmf knows.

Yes Wolfgang, the drive has no problems saving the backup image through the 3.0 usb connection, Maybe its Linux that doesn't get along well with 3.0?

I think you are right. Linux is behind the times. Next week I get a new laptop with USB3. I guess I will experiment - also with Windows imaging. They probably do not use Linux but their own scheme (maybe BartPE). From the recovery disk I could not figure it out.

Well, as Bret says, the imaging part (with Macrium) seems to work. It's the Linux recovery CD that gives. Maybe the BartPE would work. Maybe SIW2 knows.

Linux o/s is not behind the times.

It is just that Paramount haven't built usb 3.0 support into the free boot disc yet.

They soon will.

Good for me, that the new USB3 system I purchased is backward compatible!

Thanks Siw, that is good to know. So in the interim we will image with USB3 and restore with USB2. Progress is coming - slowly.

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,
