    Macrium is great, use free if you can, paid is stupid expensive.
    It is indeed. If one wants incremental imaging and some other paid features of MR (including support - not that I've needed that per se), a 10% discount can usually be found at all times and occasional 20-30% discounts will arise for limited times. I enjoy my single paid version, meeting all my needs, but settle for using free on 2 other machines in my household.

    The incremental and differential options were fine when disks cost real money. But today you can get TeraBytes for little money. That's why I am an advocate for full images.

    And there's much to be said for that (right, @OldMike65 ?). Whether it be your desktop direct to an external or my laptop across the Wifi to the desktop external, scheduling a full disk image at 3-4am in the morning has little impact on me whether it be incremental, differential, or full. Now, I just need to round up the next $100-$120 for one of those sweet WD MyBook 4 TB's.

    LoL ...yup, I went from Acronis which I had been using since at least 2007, bought every version to even the latest release. 2015 I think.....to removing Acronis, completely from both my computers, and now I only use Macrium Reflect Free. Also gained at least 200+ megs of space on both my SSD's too boot!! Acronis each year has become VERY bloated and also loaded needless crap into memory. Macrium Reflect just works for me, as I only do complete image backups anyhow. :)

    I have an external USB3 attached enclosure where I reuse the HDDs I recover from my laptops when I install SSDs on the laptops. And recenty I also bought a 256GB and a 512GB SSD to be used in that enclosure.

    This PE disk from @khyi has both Macrium and AOMEI installed (and lots of other things).

    I find it really handy to have a web browser working when booting from recovery disk in case you have to look something up.

    You could try it... You can put it on USB or CD as you wish.

    Yep. Another way to boot it, is to create a partition on an internal/external HD, format as FAT32, copy the content of the ISO and mark it as Active then you don't need a USB/DVD.

    Since everything is run from RAM, you can surf the web with no worry to get infected, test freeware, play video etc...

    I created my own WinPE since my favorite browser is Firefox and added my own paid version of tools. Also include Macrium/Windows Recovery/Mini Tool Partition/AOMEI Partition etc...

    FYI, Registry Workshop has been updated to Version 5 as I know this is one of your favorite program.
