    I have just done a backup of my NAS with Macrium Reflect Home, just use the "Create a File and Folder Backup", navigate to the network drive, select the folders and its job done, very pleased.

    I would like to keep the Windows system backups separate from user data (pics, videos, etc.) backups. So, differential backups for the Windows system and user data will be kept separately ?

    You can store the backup files anywhere you want unlike windows images. As far a MR and Windows is concerned they are just files and you can separate them into different folders for your needs. The only restriction is that the related differentials have to be in the same folder as the full image that they are based on. I personally wouldn't use imaging to back up data files but that's just my opinion.

    I also wouldn't use imaging for data files.

    OP is using Macrium Reflect Home not Free. That has a option to backup Files and Folders only. It is a perfectly fine way to backup data and saves space. Image can be mounted as a drive and individual files recovered as well.

    I am using free Macrium reflect for saving/restoring system images, and will continue using Microsoft's file history for data backup/restore.

    I like Macrium for imaging and Backup and Restore (Windows 7) for all else, I find it less intrusive than File History.

    I've created my very first Macrium image and rescue USB Drive. I now want to test the USB rescue media works and that it can actually find the image on the external hard Drive. How would I back-out of this in order to reboot back to Windows as normal because obviously I don't want to restore anything. Is there like a cancel button somewhere?

    Just boot of the rescue usb and choose to validate the image. If it validates , there's no reason it wouldn't work when needed.
