    Hi yafatana,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    Your old backups will work as normal when you update :)

    Just updating is enough, if any problem occurs after updating or while updating then uninstalling and downloading the new version might be required.

    I recommend that you update yes, it is usually always recommended to stay up to date and 'simply' get used to any changes that have been made :)

    I've not had any problems with backups from previous versions of Macrium, though this is my own experience. The backups are compatible with V6 of Macrium

    V6 will also recover V5 versions if necessary.

    I didn't know that, though I've only been using Macrium when V6 was out and didn't hear about Macrium earlier.
