I have no idea what zalman is. I expect it is a winpe problem.

Perhaps you need drivers for that.

There is USB3 support in the latest free Macrium releases. I use USB3 and eSata disks all the time.

Winpe3 does not support usb3 natively. Did you add the drivers ?

You are right (as usual). I just tried it with my level 5603 WinPE Macrium recovery disc. It did not recognize my USB3 disc. When I switched the port to USB2, it worked.

Since the Macrium release at that level does support USB3, I assumed the WinPE would do that too. But I guess one should never assume. Quod erat demonstrandum.

I think the Macrium paid versions will try and find your installed drivers and try to add them to pe.

Paragon ( paid versions ) asks what drivers you want to add - and you can browse to them . Different approach - one of the reasons paragon is more to my liking.

With the free versions of both - you can add them yourself.

It is pretty easy.

Yeah, switching the ports that are next to each other is even easier, LOL.

How does one add the USB 3 drivers to the Macrium WinPE? I wasn't given an option when I made the disk but am asked if I want to load them when I ran it to restore an image.
