    No it only makes the one image to the first location that it finds available.
    If the drive attached is not the one intended, it will proceed with the backup. That may not be desirable, and not realized until after the fact. Based on the retention defined, an image may be lost that was not intended.

    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

    ???? "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.


    Okay, im a little confused now. when reading what
    f14tomcat described ?

    I think Tomcat is referring to making a new image each time, just to different locations.

    One after another. Either minutes, days, or months apart, depending on your personal inclinations.

    As opposed to making an image and then duplicating it.

    Correct. What I described is a typical scenario of doing Daily/Weekly/Monthly backups. What Iggy described is making a duplicate of an existing backup. Two different things.

    Play around with it, you'll get it. Based on what you've done so far, it will fall into place for you. Experiment.

    Hi,

    You may be better off using the extra space to make more frequent images. Just a thought.
    That and running verify image while you're making it.
    As for the rescue disk:
    I let Macrium make an ISO file which I then use to create a USB stick (easy when your machine is fully EFI compliant).
    Furthermore I also create a 1 Gib partition on the external HD to which the RE files are copied after formatting it to FAT32.
    Make sure both do actually boot if not they're useless.
    The usb stick is just to be safe, most of the time I use the external USB HDD to launch MR for a restore to disk.

    I'm OK with installing a bootmenu on the machine when all else fails or whatever. It will increase boot time though.

    Oh, USB actually have lower MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) not higher BTW.

    Cheers,

    Reading this discussion now, I realized there's one tutorial missing, about an option not available in Macrium: how to create a physical Macrium Rescue Partition.

    I just wrote a tutorial for it: Macrium Reflect - Create a Rescue Partition

    One more idea to add to the confusion.

    I don't create a Macrium Rescue flash drive. I use Kyhi's Rescue ISO which I used to create a bootable flash drive from. It has Macrium Reflect on it and is perfectly capable of creating manual backups if needed and restoring backups as needed.

    The bonus is there are a lot of additional tools on it that can help resolve PC problems.
