One thing to be aware of is Macrium Free has only a Linux-based recovery disk option, meaning it might have trouble with your PC's hardware e.g. on one PC I have where I use USB3.0, the Macrium recovery disk doesn't see the external drive that my backups are on (iirc it hangs or crashes even).

So if you try it and make a backup and rescue disk, immediately try booting your system with the rescue disk and make sure it can see your image backup.
