What's the Macrium Reflect xml files for ?

I've recently started using Macrium Reflect free on several pc's, and think I've got the hang of it. I've done backups and experimented with rescue cd/re-install and that went OK. Next step is to get an external drive to duplicate the backups.

One thing puzzles me - what's the xml files for and how do I use them ? On my Win10 box, I have 3 backup images (separate HDD to OS), and 7 xml files on C:\ -

This PC\Documents\Reflect\My Backup(6) etc

IIRC during imaging, xml files are mentioned

The XML files store your settings for when you want to make an image with the same settings again. You just highlight the definition file and click on the cog wheel.

Macrium Reflect creating multiple images, not updating files
My hard drive crashed yesterday, so I tried restoring some of my files on another computer.

In...
