    You can always save any given image file on hard drive 1 and then manually copy it after the fact to hard drive 2, 3, 4, etc.

    I'd certainly want to keep more than 1 copy of any given image file. They are among your most valuable files, so why wouldn't you want to have a duplicate?
    You may be better off using the extra space to make more frequent images. Just a thought.

    Good. Now go into Macrium and your definitions. Duplicate the definition and then rename it to something meaningful. On a second (or third) HDD, create a folder called W10Pro backup_2. Edit the copied definition to point to the second HDD and folder as the destination. Save the definition. Now you have 2 or 3 if you choose. Plug in the correct one, and run the corresponding definition file. Done.

    Advantage of using 3 HDDs in rotation is you will have a standard Son, Father, Grandfather set of backups. Copying the same image to multiple HDDs gives you copies of the same image, not a timeline.
    You don't need three definitions. You can specify alternative locations and it will use the first it finds. Alternative Locations For Backups - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase

    I will add use two USB thumbdrives for rescue media and alternate them when required to build new boot media. That way you always have a known working one. ( Macrium tells you when you should be rebuilding rescue media.)

    I have a bunch of older gear and client gear and twice now when I created new rescue media over my old it has failed to work. You can go to their forum a see the issues with rescue media.

    Quite true. 3 separate just makes it easier to visualize and if different scheduling is desired a necessity.

    Question, when i put the "Alternative Locations" into use, will it then automatic make a copy onto another defined drive?

    No it only makes the one image to the first location that it finds available.

    ???? "duplicate in Macrium"?

    If you have an image file named 4444.mrimg and want to "duplicate" it, you would not use Macrium. You'd just copy it to another folder as if it were a photograph.

    Macrium recommends using RoboCopy and can generate scripts to do it. Backup Folder Synchronization - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase
