    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.

    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.
