Windows 10: Macrium Reflect boot menu option
I actually made a 2GB partition on my SSD, then copied all the files from my Rescue USB stick to the Macrium partition. Seems to work just fine.
I did the same thing and have used it a couple of times. I works real well.
Dino did it a completely different way than I did Cliff. I used Mini Tool to make the 2GB partition, then copied all the files to it from my usb stick, then removed the drive letter. Done.
So not sure now what the difference is between these 2 methods. Except the way Dino does it, MR has a assigned drive letter, mine does not.
Well Mike, I used mention flags in my post, he'll probably show up sometime, and tell you
I removed the drive letter also. I'm not sure it makes a difference though. It works either way.
The only difference I would think is, you are not bothered with it in File Explorer with out the drive letter, but it will still show the partition in Disk Management. Maybe with it showing up in File Explorer it's easier to update it, as you'll be able to access it online.
I did it more for security reasons, as I would think it would be harder for any malware to access that partition.

Dino is just about the best expert on anything to do with partitions ....without a doubt.
Kari replied to me in a post elsewhere with useful information. https://www.tenforums.com/general-sup...nu-option.html
It seems the boot option will work fine so long as I keep the recovery drive up to date.
Thanks for your help.
Macrium Reflect v7.0.2134
12 April 2017
Changelog version 7:
I have the latest free version of Macrium Reflect.
I think that I can only get support from the Macrium site with the full paid version.
Since the big Windows 10 update last week, I seem to be getting errors in the backup logs.
Though this belongs to Win 7 32 bit but I think people here may have answer to my problem. I created a Macrium USB pen drive (fat 16 formatted) but PC is not booting this pen drive and error comes up - operating system missing). PC first boot device...
Whenever I try to restore a Macrium Reflect image, it says:
Macrium Reflect has encountered a serious problem: Dump file 'C:\reflectv6.1-871-x64-0.dmp was created. Please email this file to firstname.lastname@example.org
What free image programs WORK in...
I made a Macrium Reflect 6 free version boot USB drive and thought I would put it in to make sure it worked.
I get two Kinston USB drive boot options, which one should I use to boot up with?
