    Ironically, if you use the "fix Windows boot problems" link, it loses the boot entry for Macrium - lol

    Didn't know that.
    Been like that since day one. Drove me nuts the first time I did it. I don't think that's even mentioned anywhere in the docs. Since the "fix" only scans for Win OS entries, the boot entry goes Poof! So will any Linux boot entries.

    Yeah you think it would be able to restore it's own boot entry - lol.

    Why doesn't MRF see my external USB drive? It also doesn't see my NAS drive. I've recently had trouble writing to Lexar flash drives in a 3.0 port (write speed drops to 1mb/s until I reinstall usb drivers. A laptop with 2.0 ports works fine)
    All this tech that won't work with MRF writing large image files is frustrating.

    Iomega external USB GDHDU 31803900 (1TB formatted NTFS)
    Western Digital MyCloud EX2 Ultra NAS (4TB formatted NTFS)
    Lexar Jumpdrive (128gb exFAT)
    Lexar Jumpdrive S45 mini (128gb exFAT)
    ASUS Transformer Mini T102HA with one USB 3.0 port

    When you say it won't see your NAS, just state the IP address in the path. I set my NAS to a specific location, 192.168.1.xyz

    So I tell Macrium \\192.168.1.xyz\share folder name.

    If you want to see your NAS by name you may have to turn on SMB1.0 in Windows 10.

    If you need to give it a password you can go into MRF defaults and under Network add a location, user name and password. Make these changes in Network defaults before creating boot media. It should then be transfer to the boot media.

    Not sure about USB, my thumbdrives are just FAT32 and I only use as boot media. Sounds like you want to image to USB.

    Thanks - you got me unstuck. I tried again - I found the network settings and entered name and password (Win10 already has access) Then I started a backup and entered the network drive location (//MyCloud/share). It finally stayed in the list after at least 5 tries. After moving it to the top of the list, it's now shown in the destination list. I did the same to add the external USB drive (H:\backups). I've completed a full image to both drives. When I have more time I'll try a scheduled backup to the NAS drive.. which is usually on standby.

    Yesterday, I used Macrium for the first time. Today, I used AOMEI to merge the E partition with a no longer usable recovery partition. Those last two partitions were not included in the image backup, but does the fact AOMEI created a PE mean that I need to redo the stuff I did with Macrium?

    Hi gregyurkon

    If you want the AOMEI partition then you would need to redo. At a minimum I would retest my MR boot media now with a working system.

    When you say the last two partitions were not part of the MR image am I understanding this correctly, you meant the E: partition and the unusable recovery. These two created a new bigger E: and then the AOMEI PE Partition. Obviously you had a reason not to back up E: with the MR existing definition so I assume you are backing E: up using another method or MR definition.

    Sounds like when you did the Image you did the one to "Create an image of the partitions required to backup and restore Windows". You left all the partitions checked marked except E: and the unusable recovery.
