    I found these had gone from the normal start menu, still listed but dead links. Looks like I will find other major changes, is there a 'Whats changed' link anywhere?

    I am using USB2 on a WD My Passport 2GB drive, even so 3 hrs seems a very long time. My earlier HDD setup does show the size and usage of my C drive.

    These had gone from the normal start menu - these=? Which post please?

    Nominally when imaging I see a transfer rate of around 400-500MB/s (that's not a 'real' rate but takes into account compression I believe.

    Over USB2 it will be much slower.

    Also depends whether you're including large data partitions, or just the O/S partitions, and what you have on C: e.g. large games or lots of data.

    Further, a differential or in particular incremental image will be faster being the difference. If you have the free version of MR, only differential imaging is available.

    If you only ever create full images, this is the least time and space efficient.

    After you have 2004 installed, it`s a snap to update to 2009, also called 20H2.

    It runs great

    I think the 1st paragraph was deleted as I posted!

    Right click the Start Icon brings up selection of inks, including the Task Manager and Windows Power shell, these are still on my menu but the links do not go anywhere. I did find they had moved using Google so I can still access them. I would have thought MS would have either kept them live or removed them.

    If you're referring to post #15, then considering your lengthy image creation time, is it possible you also had partitions on your data disks ticked to be imaged?

    You can mount and view your image file to see exactly what was imaged, or look at your backup job.

    My WinX menu (rt click start button) is fine after upgrading 1903->20H2.
    Some ways of modifying this have been posted e.g.

    Hopefully you will be able to fix any broken shortcuts using that.

    Ticked drives:
    Only my Disk 1 with C drive and recovery X drive. Not sure why X was ticked, not something I have done, well I do not remember ticking that one!

    Mount my image, I guess there maybe a tutorial on that?

    WinX Menu.

    Macrium has extensive help, and there's a full online copy as well. That's rather what help is there for.. or you can use e.g. Google.

    Otherwise poke around the menu options. It's not difficult..

    Recovery X: - will be 1 of the O/S partitions. MBR configurations can have them too.. just as long as none of the other disks were included as far as the long time is concerned. (You can include whatever you want in a given image).

    Apart from this I am sorting out my brothers affairs as he recently passed away, not Covid though. Dementia
    Sorry to here that- I had to deal with my parents' affairs (the practical side of which I had full control and knowledge of at least) - my mother had Parkinsons.

    Gentlemen. Thank you for all your help and advice, you have gone above and beyond and I think I have taken up enough of your time. There are subjects I will need to pursue at a later date when I have more time. I am very pleased that my OS is up to date and will hopefully continue without problems. Note hope !

    I will happily mark this as solved.
