    When installing Macrium Free, what is the "Log" option?


    When I start the installation of Macrium Free, in the bottom left corner is a little checked box with the word Log next to it. What does this refer to and should I leave it checked or unchecked? Thanks.

    My guess would be it enables/disables MR installation logging.

    Rather oddly, perhaps, the log is written to C:

    I couldn't find a reference to it in MR's documentation- feel free to try:

    It's basically foo-fah. Seems actions are logged at install and when firing up the Rescue Environment. It can be deleted.

    All I could find was an old comment on their Forum:

    Any reason why Reflect writes it's install log to the root of C:\?
