Essenbe:

Thanks for that link to post 183.

I downloaded it, unzipped it, ran it, created an ISO, burned the ISO to a CD, and then booted from the CD.

After a few minutes of loading, I came to a nice looking screen with a kitty on a motor scooter--and a double column of buttons which when poked led to certain other apps or windows.

I'm not sure what it all means as regards Macrium. There was no "Macrium" button. The only image-related button led me to Windows own imaging, which I don't use. I'm not sure I should randomly start poking buttons when I don't know the likely result.

But I'm on record as being a dim bulb.

All I know for sure is that the disk created from SIW's app is bootable.

I haven't tried it yet.
SIW2's pic showed a Macrium Icon named Mac.

Did you include Macrium DiskRestore in the location suggested?

Thanks for the update.

I'll have to play around with it and see what it can do for me.

ignatzatsonic, I hope you figure it out or maybe SIW2 will help. But. don't talk about being a dim bulb, you already know more about it than me. But, from reading that thread, Kado may know about it.

I can't look at it right now, but if I saw "Mac", I would never have made a Macrium connection---I'd have thought "Apple". As I said, dim bulb.

Not sure what you mean by "Macrium DiskRestore in the location suggested". Is that mandatory, optional, or?

I thought that originally, until I recognised the icon.

I assume it is mandatory, if you want Macrium included.

I'll check those links tomorrow---you may well be right about it being mandatory.

Also, let me know exactly what you think this thing is:

A boot disk to access and use particular free versions of Macrium?

A boot disk to access and use all free versions of Macrium?

Does the disk need to be remade if I upgrade to a new version of Macrium?

Works regardless of what version of Macrium I used to make the image file to be restored??

May not work with Windows 7 Service Pack 2, 3, or?


etc etc, inquiring minds want to know.

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,
