Image backups with Windows 10S.

    Image backups with Windows 10S.

    I asked Macrium Reflect Developers if they were going to develop a UWP version like the Win32 version. They said it was not possible as Reflect needs admin rights.

    I guess that means you can only backup using a Winpse version, losing benefit of scheduling and being able to use PC whilst backup is being done.

    Does anybody know if the Windows 10 SIB (deprecated feature) works in Win 10S?

    I doubt it, that's not a UWP either. It dates back to Windows 7 and you can start it in 'normal' Windows with the command line (or shortcut):
    %windir%\System32\sdclt.exe /BLBBACKUPWIZARD

    I don't have Windows 10S, perhaps someone who does could try?

    Edit: and yes, from a standard account you need admin rights, UAC asks for an admin password to run it.

    I'm sure someone posted something about Windows 10 S "Manufacturing Mode" "Maintenance mode" which could be used to install apps before switching on Windows 10 S proper. So maybe that could be used? Not sure how it would cope with installing version updates to Macrium though.
