    Do I need to create new rescue CD when I update Macrium from v6>v7?


    Just updated Macrium from v6>v7

    Do I need to create a new rescue CD? Would there be some change in the v7 Macrium not recognising the rescue CD I created with v6 Macrium?

    If this makes sense?

    Many thanks!

    Its well worth updating cd to take advantage of any new features and to be sure it will work

    It is the other way round - the V6 CD will not restore V7 backups.

    You must upgrade.

    Wait so hang on, I havent created any images of my SSD using the v7 yet
    But once I create a full image of my SSD with the new v7 Macrium, IF I need to restore using the v6 CD, it will not restore the new v7 backup?

    My experience has been that any MR7 USB or DVD can restore any MR6-made image; and any MR7 residing on the HD can read any MR6-made image off of any external media.

    No - restore drives are backward compatible not forward compatible. A v7 cd will restore v6 images but not vice versa.

    In fact, this often applies if v7 is upgraded as well. To avoid issues, I always update rescue drive each time an update comes out. I only use flash drives.

    OP is talking about using a V6 Rescue drive to restore a V7 image. This is not possible.

    I was hoping my post indicates the same thing you indicated -- MR6 cannot restore an MR7-made image.

    It says MR7 drive can restore MR6 images (true) but does not say anything about reverse direction.
