    Macrium Reflect question


    If I use MR to create an image of a MBR disk is it OK to store that image on a GPT disk ? Is it going to cause problems if I need to restore the image to the MBR disk ?

    To add to the reply, you could (and I have) save the image on a Fat32 formatted usb. If you do, there is a 4GB maximum file size limit for Fat32. Macrium by default will split the image into as many 4GB files as needed to store the whole image. So yes, you can use anything.

    Cheers Bree, I thought that would be the case but just wanted to be sure
