    Windows imaging has had a major update to support vhdx format. It works very well.

    WBADMIN START RECOVERY -version:03/29/2017-22:30 -itemType:Volume -items:c: -recoverytarget:d:
    WBADMIN START RECOVERY -version:03/29/2017-22:30 -itemType:App -items:Registry -recoverytarget:d:\
    WBADMIN START RECOVERY -version:03/29/2017-22:30 -itemType:File -items:d:\folder -recursive

    There is an existing Tutorial thread for the use of, and comments on, the Windows 7 Backup/Restore included in Windows 10.

    Create Windows Backup in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials [1]=Backup%20Restore

    Perhaps your post/comments regarding the process would be better served in that thread. This thread focuses on backup/restore using Macrium Reflect. New members and guests may not understand or be confused with the intermixing of the two.

    Since I am having troubles with my loved Restore Point, I want to use Macrium Free for a while (until I will get CU or until someone will fix the issue on the Anniversary).

    I am just a question that for me is very important: it's about CLOUD files.

    In the past, with the RP, I was free to restore my OS without problems about DATA.

    Now, with imaging, I will LOSE all my data until the last image made.

    I have a dedicated HD only for data but in the OS hard disk I have all my cloud services that are i.e. dropbox, Google drive, OneDrive, Apple, etc.

    My question is hard to answer because it's different between any Cloud, but I hope you will give me a direction with it:

    After the restore of the image the variuos Clouds that I use will think that i DELETED all the files that was not on the image (the newer) and will delete them from each clouds?

    If that scenario is what I say, it is AWFUL and absolutely not tollerable for me!!! I work with many devices with many cloud stuff and what will happen??? I will lose the recent work?

    I am under the impression that the cloud backup will govern and sync back all the missing files to your newly restored PC. Can someone also please confirm this?

    Beacuse maybe the Cloud services understand if I file is DELETE or if is disappeared without a reason?

    If so, I am afraid that only very good services like Dropbox will be like that... but I am not sure even for it.

    For sure, I don't think the cloud by Apple for Windows will have a so sophisticated way to understand.

    BTW, since there is NO software better that Macrium Free and no software that can only recognize what is OS files and what is DATA FILE, I have no chance...

    I suspect that the missing files may be treated as deleted. It would be a risk but most cloud services would move the "deleted" files to their equivalent of the recycle bin. You would have to restore them manually. If you take frequent images this would reduce the work needed.

    It would also help if you didn't set your cloud syncs to autostart. Then you would have more control over what happens.

    Do you really need to keep your cloud files on the OS disk? It really would be preferable to move them if possible.

    BTW. Restore points are not a backup. You will be much more secure with a Macrium image.

    I read that Macrium don't backup (in it's image) the Restore Point of Windows. Simply it did not recognize them good.

    Said so, If I restore an image with Macrium with dozens of GB in System recovery folder that will be not correctly recognized by the OS as Recovery Points and I will not able to delete them. In other terms they will occupy space in the HD (my SSD is small).

    IS my scenario real or Macrium "understand" the RP system folder?

    All recovery points are, are Registry backups in a sense really.
    If you feel you really need them, after a re-image(which you won't/don't) you can always get Tweaking(.)com's registry backup: Registry Backup
    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect-image.png
    which will also restore your registry should you muck something up, and that a lot better, and more reliably than Windows restore points:)
