Windows 10: Strange popup screen when creating a Macrium Rescue boot drive

    Strange popup screen when creating a Macrium Rescue boot drive

    This is odd. I got a message saying Macrium Reflect v7 would keep existing partitions on a standard removeable usb flash drive (with CU Windows can access more than one partition now).

    This was despite drive being wiped as you can see.

    So I created a partition about half the size of the drive and copied some files to it.

    Then I continued, expecting to see a new partition created, keeping one I had created, but it got wiped and Macrium was installed in existing partition.

    So I tried again, and wiped drive and create two partitions. First was empty FAT32, second NTFS had some files.

    I expected it to either wipe drive completely, or write it to first FAT32 partition.

    Imagine my surprise when it left first blank partition alone and wiped second NTFS partition with files in it!

    So basically that pop up screen is lying - LOL!
