    Macrium Reflect backup restore?

    I have 3 PC's, One desktop and two laptops running latest 1903 versions of W10.
    I have used Macrium Reflect on my desktop for over a year and have a usb stick with the restore backup program, I have used it once and it worked flawlessly:

    What I need to know is will this restore backup program also work with my laptops, as I am now making Macrium backups with them? Or do I need a separate backup program for each PC?

    Do all 3 have the same version of Macrium installed on their hard drives?

    Or is Macrium on the hard drives at all?

    Does that single stick boot all 3 machines and lead you to the Macrium interface?

    Technically, each PC needs its own backup program installed in order to make backups while the PC is running. This can be of course Macrium Reflect Free on all three PCs. If you have bought the (quite expensive for this kind of software) Home version, then this can be installed only on one PC (if you did not buy the still more expensive 4 PC version). Of course you can backup any Windows PC booting an Macrium boot USB stick that even the free version allows to be made. And of course you need this boot stick when you have ruined your Windows or even your PC as you then have to boot externally anyway. And you need to store the backups not on your three PCs but on an external drive or NAS drive to be on the safe side.
