    My bad, sorry. My comment was to point that Windows boot partition can be on any internal disk. I had multiple threads showing as "thread with new unread posts", didn't realize I was replying in discussion about Macrium boot device. I thought I was replying to a Windows thread.

    My apologies.

    We need an update desperately to be able to use external drive connected to USB3.0 port, USB2.0 ports are fine, hope someone from Macrium read this thread.

    I didn't know that USB3 can't be used to make backup to or from, that would be real downer. The Rescued work on and from USB3 and up. I use removable SATA disk in a STA tray.

    What's your issue with the USB 3.0 ports? That's all I've used for years. Can't see them? Crashes? Takes forever?

    Post in the Macrium forum. Really good response times.


    There is an option to override the USB drivers Macrium uses in media. Start Create media, Advance, Device & Drivers tab, at the bottom. Have you tried this. I would also delete the drivers folders in c:\boot and start with a clean USB thumbdrive. (I'd keep the old one until I knew I had a working new one.) Then create boot media.

    I've gotten around the USB3 issues, mostly on older devices, by using a more advance WIM. (Win 5.0 PE and above) That said some older machines and their implementation have this driver issue and they created the USB override.

    I assume your USB3 issue is that Macrium doesn't see anything attached to a USB3. At least this is how I've experienced the issue.

    A Win 7 era PE3 recovery drive will not have USB3 support by default PE5 or above will.

    No problems at all , just made a fine backup from internal SSD-MBR-partition C:\ with destination to external HDD ( GPT-partition ) on USB3 .
    Had to boot the Macrium-cd first , then switched on my external ( Seagate) HDD.
    This external HDD on USB3 is "seen" with all the other SSD, HDDs ( USB2) in the Macrium-program.
    Backup went fast, with verifying about 5 minutes ( 14GB) ............so , I dont see any problem with external USB3-drives..........

    " Macrium doesn't see anything attached to a USB3 ".............not true !

    I have used 2 External USB 3 drives on my systems for years with no problems. I have used the desktop version of Macrium free and also a recovery USB and both work fine.
