    Macrium rescue disk ...what is the total actual size of file???

    Just created a rescue disk for W10 on an 8GB sd card

    When I looked at the contents of the rescue files I noticed it was quite small
    Please see below images

    As I have not been able to find any info on what the actual size of the W10 PE image is, can someone chime in to see if I have the right files and size for the rescue media

    It depends what version you build and what drivers. Mine is 284MB including my drivers and the optional bitlocker stuff so yours looks OK. I had it on a 256MB SD card in the past but had to upgrade to using a 512MB card as it eventually got too big to fit.

    Why not try to boot from it? That will reassure you if it works. You don't need to actually then do anything.

    If you want to use the spare space for something else as well you can make another directory (called "OtherThings" or something) and store additional data in it - it will still boot.

    Thanks for your quick reply

    If I want to boot from it will I have to go into my bios to boot from the SD card??

    Yes. Make it first in boot priority.

    Some PC can boot from SD, some others refuse and will only boot from USB key. You should check it before you need it.
