    Let's use one of my three computers as an example:
    20170415_YT0_C_S03 or 201704_TSCII1_S03
    20170415 is the date of the backup
    _YT0 is from the serial number of HD (from device mgr)
    _TSCII1 -- one of two dedicated usb external 1TB pancake HDs
    _C -- commonly called "c drive", which is really OS partition C
    _S03 -- is the computer number
    That's what I use; I do not let MR keep logs; easier just to search for images.
    You can delete My copy my copy(1) and so on when you are doing the backup and that way Macrium doesn't get to keep logs on your machine.
