I have to admit, I didn`t realise that you could see the differences in folders between certain snapshot times - just by clicking each snapshot name whilst having a folder open on the right pane. I even dragged out a portable program folder from a snapshot, onto my live system, and it worked ! (maybe I shouldn`t have been surprised, but I was slightly) In my defence, AX (or Macrium for that matter) is only ever used as a full image backup/restore tool, so I wouldn`t have been actively searching for extra features like that I suppose....but I could see how that might be very useful. Now, I do have a question that`s nothing to do with the above..... When creating an AX boot disk/usb, if the user does not have the "Recovery" environment available or installed, therefore no winre.wim file.... what file is it that is needed ? Will the winpe.wim from WAIK suffice as a replacement if renamed and put into a suitable location ? tl;dr how do I manually supply AX with a winre.wim file for the bootable media process ?
