Do you always have to rudely use exclamation marks!?! Your link told me nothing.!
It wasn't my intention to be rude at all, sorry for that. I thought you want to know where library info is stored. It is stored in folder %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries. Files have extension library-ms

Instead putting Reflect's Recovery Disk on a separate CD or USB stick, is it possible to put it on a HDD where the images are stored? If so, how? It would be nice to not have to keep track of a separate USB stick or CD for recovery. All my images are stored on external HDDs. The ones for my notebook are on HDDs accessed through a USB 2.0 dock and the ones for my desktop are stored on HDDs that I can plug into one of two internal SATA 3.0 dock (one 2.5" and one 3.5").

I'm not aware of a way to do that with the free version. The paid for versions allow you to select Macrium or Windows at boot time.

Unfortunately, its not possible to have both the recovery boot files, and image on the same media.

I have the paid version.
With the paid version, if you use the Other Tasks > Add Recovery Boot Menu Options, and then OK this:

Image your system with free Macrium-1.png

it adds a recovery boot option to the HDD (which Keith was referring to). It looks like this:

The paid version of MR has an option named Add Recovery Boot Menu. This essentially installs WinPE to your drive and adds an entry to the BCD to invoke it. This allows you to do restores from OUTSIDE Windows, should Windows crash so badly that you can't boot it.

OOOps, sorry, was typing while Golden was adding their post.

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,
