    Thank you guys, will do.

    I know it's good practice to take regular images but I tend to leave it a few weeks apart as I don't change much day by day. It's also a mission digging out the USB drives I have and feeding them into power supply etc etc. So should the worst happen I can handle dropping back a few weeks, just not months and months! Had struggled to get my head round it all and because Macrium is quite a regular updater I didn't fancy doing a new image every time it updated. But you have put my mind at rest. Thank you.
    Think what you change.

    I use File History to backup my documents (usually every couple of days but ideally daily). I use Macrium to back up my C drive every few weeks depending what new software I install and if there have been updates to Windows.

    Perhaps you would find making a daily backup works better for you but for me it is pointless - months go by and all I really care about is the state of my documents as that is what changes.

    I've probably not installed any new software since Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo and as long as I have my file history I can re-install Windows (and Office etc) in half an hour or so anyway.

    I copied the content of the rescue disk onto my D: drive so now I have a dual boot Windows and Macrium.

    I can boot Macrium from D and replace all of C and everything on D (my documents and so on) stays the same.

    Cool huh? I think it was @topgundcp who had that idea in the first place but it is a good one.

    If you make a little 2GB partition, copy all the MR to it, then remove the drive letter, it shows up as a UEFI OS on the F12 boot options! Nothing can mess with it without a drive letter. (theoretically)

    Nice one @f14tomcat - I assume it auto adds to the booloader in UEFI only - with MBR one still has to EasyBCD it?

    I have my MR partition mapped in Grub - what is also cool about MR compared to other rescue iso's used in this way, is that most others only offer cloning and restore... not backup, let alone incremental or differential options.

    Yes I use that one too , I also do the Same for KYHI's PE Disk , works nicely off MY USB 4 Disk Server..... Each disk has a 3-5 GB Fat32 partition I can use eg for the Win10 ISO or Acronis Boot Disk too if needed.

    No need to use EasyBCD. Just make sure the partition used is FAT32 and set to "Active". You'd get 2 options from boot menu. One for MBR and the other for UEFI,

    Thanks! I thought so, but had no way to try it.

    I use rEFInd as a loader.

    My Windows install USB is formatted NTFS and I also get a choice of EFI or legacy loader. I did have to put a NTFS driver in the EFI partition though...

    Rufus does a similar thing (although I don't use it) - he makes a small FAT partition with a EFI NTFS driver and then sticks the bulk in a NTFS formatted partition on your USB drive.
