    Thanks, Steve, for your wise reply. February 15 I made a start USB and downloaded an ISO file to a DVD from Microsoft's web site. Are they OK for recovery purposes or does the backup program have to create those?

    Macrium Reflect Rescue USB is different from what you currently have. Once I realized the power of the Macrium Reflect Rescue USB, I will always have one on hand as it can be used to make Macrium Reflect backups as well as solve Windows boot problems like magic.

    If your boot drive was to die today and you have a Macrium Reflect Rescue USB and bought a new boot drive, you would replace the boot drive, boot from Macrium Reflect USB, then restore your latest Macrium Reflect backup image to the new boot drive and be operational in short order.

    Oh, then I have to delay the process if that has to be done before the backup starts. I don't have a suitable USD stick so I have to order one on the web as I can't go to a shop because of the risk for corona. Besides the authorities tell people to stay away from public places as much as possible. The situation in Sweden is still quite bad now approaching 13000 deaths. So with my age I just have to stay away from risks.

    For now just make a full backup from the MR app on your PC. Buying a USB online and waiting for it to arrive is the smart option - you don't need to go out for this task due to safety as you said.

    You don't need to buy a new USB Tore. I will post a reply explaining in a few hours.

    Steve..... have you tried this? I just did, and the USB thumb drive is not recognized by MR as a disk for source, only as destination. V8 will do this, but the current V7 can't, it seems.

    TC, no I had not tried it and made a quantum bad assumption it would work. Thanks for letting us know.

    I will try it later out of curiosity. I'll also try my other software and see if it allows making an ISO from a bootable USB.

    create backup of pendrive Tore, another possible way to image a USB thumb drive is discussed here. I've never tried it. Link also confirms that MR does not backup USB thumb drives.
