    Generally speaking----make a new image and save it to the same pen drive------assuming the pen drive has enough space.

    If it doesn't, you'll have to delete the old image.

    A pen drive is not the best idea.

    You say "update weekly".

    You might mean make a new image weekly or you might mean something else. You will have to clarify.

    Does your pen drive now have a file on it with an mrimg extension?

    If it does, how big is that file?

    Weekly, I do a full backup to a 1TB external drive and have several .mrimg files going back a month or so. They have come in useful now and then.

    I wonder why you feel a pen drive is not the best idea? Is it simply because of the limited number, relatively speaking, of the number of .mrimg files or are there some other technical reasons?

    Thank you.

    Did you tested the pen drive?
    Have seen many fake pendrives, specially those big ones. They report as normal but once you test it you find out they have only a fraction of the capacity.

    Please don't use external links. Use the "insert Image" of top menu

    That's 40 gigabytes.

    Your pendrive will hold 5 of that size.

    If I were you, I'd simply make a new full image every month or so.

    Keep all 5 if you want. When the 6th month comes, delete the oldest one so you have room for the new one.

    You may have some reason to make images more often than once a month. I have no idea. I make one a month.

    There is no over-riding reason to get involved with differential or incremental images UNLESS you have space issues (you don't) or unless you cannot stand to spend the time required to make a new full image.

    Don't count on that pen drive. They are flimsy and slow. I'd get an external hard drive if possible, but a pen drive is better than nothing.

    It's up to you to make Macrium recovery media and know what you will do (exactly) if your hard drive drops dead at sundown.
