    It's asked me to download something from Windows. Can't see an option to put rescue disk on DVDClick image for larger version.

    Mm, caution: that's a CNET download, wrapped in CNET's installer, which offers - well- other things you have to unclick. (Adware? Scumware? which might answer the question as to how money might be made in that particular case (CNET).
    Seriously have you try the link I posted above ? . There's no adware etc... in this. Actually, it is just a small Macrium Reflect Download Agent as seen below and you can select whether to download Free or Home version. You can save this agent and run it for new future version. Been doing this for a long time.

    Sorry, my usual experience of CNET installers is that they bundle 2 or 3 offers you have to decline.. maybe this one is an exception. So I choose to stay clear of CNET...:)

    It's free (personal), but a bit feature limited.

    No incremental backups, no support for GPT disks, no restore to different hardware, no file/folder backup as far as I can see.

    Well that's magic mate, thanks for letting me know. I am backing up to external hard drive, but it's saving an xml file to my documents do I need that? And how do I test the rescue disk I have burned. Do I have to turn the computer off and change the boot menu, or is there an easier way? Thanks again. Paul

    Just how OLD is that article link that you posted?? I went to it, and on one page it is talking about the new version 5 <--- Well Macrium Reflect is on version 6.1.936 Version 5 was released a LONG time ago. Lots of changes and features added since version 5.

    I don't make my image backup from my C-drive, I always boot to the MR boot disk, then make my image backups. You can make the rescue disk in 2 ways, depending on your which way your computer will boot from. If your computer will boot from a USB drive, then all you need to do is reboot your computer, hit whatever F key your computer needs to look for your USB stick, or DVD drive, and MR will boot with no problem.
