Makes me wonder how much life SSDLife has left.

Curious. I don't own a Crucial (no worries; methinks you deleted one end quote too many).

Yeah on here highlighting and quoting doesn't do the trick. You wouldn't believe how many edits it takes sometimes. I seem to be getting wandering caret syndrome.

It does work. To test it I made a backup then deleted a tiny text file. I booted and selected only C: partition to copy back(I am on W8 with the GPT jazz.) It showed elapsed time of about 2 1/2 minutes. Much better than the 20+ minutes it used to take to restore from a complete backup in v. 4.2.

Imaging with free Macrium-capture.jpg
I wish I was around in 2072.


As to Macrium V6 I'll sit on V5 for a little but eventually go to V6. I'm using the free version so making the V6 pe restore may be different from those who have the paid version.

At the rate my body and the rest of the world is falling apart, I don't want to be around in 2072.

I'm still on the fence over whether to stay with V5 pro, upgrade to V6 Free, or shell out the shekels for V6 Pro.

Which PE component should I use?

New member here!

Yesterday I read "most" of the posts in this forum....till my head started spinning!

Today I am ready to download MR free. I am using a custom built machine with Windows 7 Professional (I have one lone ancient program that requires XP. I know I'll have to let it go soon!) with a 256 GB SSD C: drive and several USB 3 ports.

Should I download PE 3.1 or would PE 4 work for my machine?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Butlerkid and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you download MR free it downloads the most suitable PE components for your installation. In your case that will probably be 3.1 (200MB download). When you create the rescue disk you have the opportunity to change the PE version. The most recent is PE5. If you chose that you will need to download a further 500+MB. I think you only need PE5 for UEFI and secure boot but it never hurts to have the latest code.
