    Macrium Reflect- Free vs. Windows 10 drive imaging


    I may need to wipe my HDD to trial Neverware. I want to make sure I can get back my legal installation of Windows 10 Pro on this computer.

    What are my options? Built-in Win10 or something like Macrium?

    I had to look up what Neverware is, but why not just run it in a virtual machine? This way, after you try it out, it isn't going to affect your main OS.

    Or, click on their 'Dual Boot' option to learn more.

    (Wonder if it's like 'Remix'?)

    I would be glad to try. The Neverware install boots off a USB stick. It offers two installation options: Standalone- which deletes the entire hard drive and DualBoot- allows you to keep your current OS installation, but limited numbers of computers have been able to use this.

    I have heard of Virtual Machine, but I really know little about how to set it up. Can you give me some pointers? I am willing to give it a try.

    Search for Oracle VM Virtualbox - freeware. Top result (probably)

    VirtualBox and VMWare Player are probably the two most common options, and are both free. Basically, you install the software, then configure a virtual machine. It's very straightforward and doesn't affect the host (main) system.

    Here is a link to their own forums regarding virtual machine use.
