    I'm still good with 6
    I never use any of the fancy-shmancy geeky stuff, and just do a plain system disk back up before I change or clean anything, and after if the system isn't buggy.

    With my system specs, imaging and reimaging WITH verification is just a matter of minutes

    Im amazed at how easy macrium is to use. I have just bought a new laptop, it came with Windows 10 home, installed on it. My old laptop has Windows 10 pro installed and it got digital entitlement by using the free upgrade, I wanted to swop these to licences/editions around so the new laptop had pro and the old laptop had home. In the process I managed to have 2 unactivated editions of windows 10. Thankfully I had made a image of each installation, which I easily restored on their original laptops and all was working as it was. Is it possible to transfer windows 10 licences between machine. I would really like windows pro on my new laptop and windows home on my old laptop. Remember I have pro activated on the old laptop with digital entitlement and I have windows home activated on the new laptop, I bought it like that?

    Check first license on both laptops, if they are OEM or Retail: Determine if Windows License Type is OEM, Retail, or Volume Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    Transferring Retail licenses should be OK, OEM license is not trasferable.

    I dont have either laptop in front of me now, I suspect the home version (on the new laptop) is oem, I will check later when I have the laptops in front of me.

    When run first time Reflect suggests you to create WinPE rescue media, either an ISO image, a CD/DVD or a USB drive:
    Does that take the place of my USB boot drive or supplement it? be on same USB?

    It's in same drive as MR boot disk/USB. It's actual BOOT and OS on it, MR is just a program that runs in PE. .

    It is on a separate USB flash drive the creation will wipe anything already on it.. You need to boot from this USB drive to restore your C: drive as you can't restore to a running Windows partition.
