Windows 7: Updating Macrium and new rescue disk question

Updating Macrium and new rescue disk question

We'll ..... things have been in storage for some time and only catching up now.
I'm getting a Win7 laptop up to date, as I need it, and imaging as I go.
But.....Macrium is version 5.0.4196.

If I update Macrium to V 5.3.7170, I believe I need to make a new rescue disk.
Will it work with the older images I have?
I Still have the previous rescue disk.

And if I can ask here, how is IE 11 to install? Any crazy issues?

Not kidding when I say stored for a while!! Thanks so much.

Never heard of any issues using a new Macrium boot disk with an old image file. As far as I know, new disks are fully backward-compatible.

Can't help you with IE.

Today I put my rescue disk in to see how it looked. The drive letters in Macrium are not the same letters showing in Disk Management. They are all scrambled. I made another Rescue Disk and it is that way also. If I am not making myself clear here is how they look. Disk Management=Macrium C:...
