    Windows10

    I emailed Macrium to see if they intended to bring out a uwp version but apparently that is not possible due to 10S restrictions.

    This is interesting as I assume it applies to all 3rd party imaging tools. Also MS have indicated that the native windows image backup is predicated and advise use of 3rd party tools.

    I guess this means you will have to boot to Macrium from a boot drive (or put it in a separate partition with a boot entry).

    Whilst this will surely work (I do not see why not), it is rather less convenient than just setting a backup running whilst running windows, and I guess scheduled backups will no longer work?

    A solution like Macrium is not that practical for an OS like Windows S. This OS is intended for places where the Admin uses completely different approach to backing up and deploying over bad installations.

    But I think Macrium is also wrong (or maybe I am wrong). It is possible to invoke anything from a Windows Store signed App by using the Bridge approach. This includes CMD and PowerShell, assuming they are available on the drive.

    I would have thought Macrium would be well on top of what is possible but who knows. I guess you are right about deployment but once MS decide to release 10S to masses on cheap devices ...?

    With regards to creating Win 10 S image backup, I've already done one but not within S itself. I did it with a pro running on a separate drive in the same machine as the S. It still works but not natively on S.
