    There is no need to even create a rescue disk. If and when you are unable to boot from the C Drive, reinstall Windows 10. After that just install Acronis, Macrium or whatever and use it to restore the earlier Image that is already there from before.
    Seems like that is a whole lot more work than just booting from Macrium Reflect Free rescue disk to start with and restoring the image directly. 15 minute single boot operation at the most to be back to a complete install including all drivers, accounts, settings and apps/programs. But, to each their own.

    Anybody know how to restore an image saved to the same drive (different partition) on the same machine?

    Maybe I am missing something obvious.

    TIA
    I save my Windows backups to a dedicated partition on the single SSD fitted to the PC. Running a restore from within Windows always and immediately picks the correct WindowsImageBackup . No searching or clicking through drives.

    That is the way it is supposed to work, and how it has worked for years. Attached you can see what results in Win10 Pro on a Lenovo Flex 3 1580 - the screen shots tell another story. Click image for larger version.

    Because it's a Windows 10 forum, not a Macrium forum, and I happen to use Windows 10.

    If you have an answer to the question asked, maybe post it. We already know how to Google "Macrium".

    - and if windows backup cannot be trusted, why does Macrium require you to dowload pe3x64.zip to make their system work?
    Well for one thing we also talk about programs that work very well with Windows 10. Sorry that you got so upset. I just thought you were looking for other ways to make image backups for Windows 10.
    2nd question..... Macrium asks for the PE3x64 app because Macrium also can repair Windows boot files, if they get corrupted. It makes a copy of the users boot files, and places them on a USB or DVD. This can be really helpful if a user can't access their Windows 10 OS. So again sorry to have upset you.
    I am not sorry for saying I don't trust Windows backup thou. I wish you nothing but the best in your search to repair your Windows backup feature Tranas. Take Care, Mike.

    And just to be clear - updating the WindowsImageBackup gets the same result. What is that Einstein said about doing the same thing over and over? Click image for larger version.

    Aside from being unable to 'name' the backup, I find Windows System Image Backup works perfectly fine,
    along with creating a 'Repair Disk', you have the ability to restore an image even when your system won't boot.

    Not a problem. Just trying to resolve an issue that may in fact not be a bug but actually by design - on the part of M$ and the supply chain.

    I get the sense that this issue is also related to the Skylake processor backstab.

    Stay tuned

    Correct on all counts. Plus, you have the granularity of multiple restore points without the wasted disk space required by full backups - just by comparison on a Win7 machine

    Acronis True Image 2016 full backup: 12+ GB
    Macrium full backup: 14+ GB
    18 months of MS Backup: 25+ GB

    Win7 when configured well is not crash prone imho, and disaster recovery is seldom necessary. With incremental restore points from a single image you can easily find a clean restore point - all the way back to the original image if necessary. That is a big + in my book, and it is supposed to be part of the OS. [until now ...]

    Did you ever move an image to another partition and then try to restore.

    These images are tiny on my multi Terabyte disks. Where is the problem. And wait when one of your MS incrementals is corrupted. That will be fun.
