    It doesn't have a System Volume Information (yes, I know it is/would-be a hidden folder)
    or a x64 (but then it is 32bit, not 64)
    it has an extra file UDC
    and an extra folder "en-us"

    ..otherwise, it looks identical


    it (MBR) looks like it has two partitions
    E:MACRIUM_PE Capacity 1GB, Used 318MB Filesystem:FAT32 Type:Primary
    *: capacity 58.52GB Used 0MB Filesystem:Unallocated Type:Logical

    it is as macrium made it, afaik

    That might be your problem, I'm sure it's only one partition on mine. Maybe you could use some program like Active Partition Manager (free) to ascertain it is only one. Download Active@ Partition Manager - MajorGeeks

    From the two line items mentioned in post 450 (as reported by Minitool), I'm not sure whether the second line - 58.52GB of empty unallocated space counts as a 'partition' or not.

    When I subsequently use Minitool to Expand the size of the first, primary partion to take up the whole disc; then full reformat it in windows (to FAT32); then use Macrium to create the rescue disk - Macrium says the disc needs reformatting, asks my permission to proceed with the reformat and returns it to the same state as per post 450 -
    1) a 1GB active FAT32 partition containing 320MB of rescue files;
    and
    2) 58.52GB of unallocated space, (The unallocated space shows up as a different line item in Minitool and a different 'box' in windows disk management)...

    Definitively 2 partitions, Use that program and kill them both.

    That's a pretty large USB drive. I think the maximum size of a FAT32 partition in Windows is 32GB.

    FAT32 max partition size - 2TB. If you have a 3TB drive, you couldn’t format it as a single FAT32 partition. Please note that you need the help of third-party partition manager to create such a huge partition. If you turn to Windows Disk Management, the largest partition size it helps to create is 32GB, and Extend Volume option is greyed out happens when the partition already occupies 32GB capacity, no matter there is unallocated space following it or not.
