    Thanks Pete, you had alluded to this before. Will give it a go soon.

    Edit: What size UFD would suffice?

    Only saw these posts afterwards.

    Looks like I need to do a little experimenting. :D

    Ah, that's why I couldn't find it with a search.
    The files are imagew64.exe and imagew.exe.

    So, does imagew64.exe just go in the root?
    How is it then used?

    Copy both the imagew64exe and ifw.ini into the root. Then when you boot to the Strelec Winpe, just use the explorer function just like in windows. Open the USB drive and double lick the exe. That simple

    Capture.PNG I have a question, maybe trivial, sometimes the symbols for Macrium's images are blurred (see screenshot), what does it mean

    Do you run display scaling within Windows? If so, I’m guessing it’s related to that. It’s been getting better over successive releases of Windows 10, but it still has its quirks.

    Display scale is on default on my computer, most of the time these Macrium icons are sharp, occasionally they are blurred, although the program has always worked perfectly as far as backups and restores are concerned. As nobody seems to be concerned about it, then it probably has something to do with visuals and therefore unimportant. Thanks

    Do you switch between different displays, such as between your laptop's built-in display and an external display? If so and those two displays use different scale factors, then you'll see some blurring whenever there's a switch. The reason is that Windows always renders for the scale factor of the display that was primary when you logged in. For any other display that's active, or if the primary display's scale factor changes during your user session, then Windows uses GPU scaling to resize the rendered result to the desired size. That obviously doesn't look as good as rendering natively for the target scale factor, but that's how it works today. So that might account for blurriness, especially if it's inconsistent.

    I used my laptop with a projector in the past, last time was on June 13. Ever since my laptop remained at home working on its own.

    Macrium Reflect v7.2.4398 Released (July 29, 2019)
    Download
    Changelog
    What's New v7.2.4398 - 29th July 2019
    • Microsoft Exchange 2019
      Support has been added for Microsoft Exchange 2019 for backup, restore and granular restore.
    • Update to TLS 1.2
      The email option in Macrium Reflect has been updated to include TLS 1.2 support.
    • Rescue Media Files
      The driver folders for WinPE/WinRE have been expanded to support multiple architectures and WIM versions.
    Bug Fixes
    • Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Restore
      During the same restore session if the same file was selected twice a mount error would be reported. This has been resolved.
    • Microsoft Exchange Backup to GUID path
      The message "Not enough memory resources are available to process this command" could be displayed when backing up exchange to a volume guid path rather than a drive letter. This has been resolved.
    • USB host driver copy
      USB devices could fail to be recognized if Windows PE/RE if the Rescue Media Builder had copied USB host drivers. This is now an optional setting in the RMBuilder 'Advanced' dialog and the defaulted operation for a fresh install is set to disabled. Please enable this option if necessary if you are having USB problems in the rescue media.
    • Rescue Media BitLocker unlock
      The MS utility 'manage-bde.exe' could fail to run correctly in the rescue media. This has been resolved. If this issue affects you then please re-create your rescue media after updating.
    • Incorrect Technicians License
      The technicians license could be incorrectly copied to USB and ISO technicians media. This has been resolved. If this issue affects you then please re-create your rescue media after updating.
    • VSS Log Deletion Error
      VSS logs could be purged by date incorrectly if the system hadn't been started for a while. This has been resolved.
    • Microsoft SQL Restore
      Server Plus could crash when attempting to restore the SQL tail log. This has been resolved.
    • viBoot Backup
      When creating a backup from within viBoot a password was prompted for even if the base image was not password protected. This has been resolved.

    I remember an update appearing and then disappearing recently, and Macrium's explanation at the time was that something had happened with their update servers that made the new version no longer available. It wasn't a deliberate retraction due to a problem discovered in the new release. I don't know what's responsible for this particular issue (I don't see this new update available either), but I can wait a bit to update, especially if this case DOES turn out to be a deliberate pull.

    ...and be careful. As of this morning Macrium's DIRECT DOWNLOADS still only offered v4325, BUT... v4398 is in the wild at the moment so make sure you get it from a trusted source.

    I will wait for the official release notes before I download v4398. Maybe they have pulled this version for one reason or another, who knows.

    It has been a troublesome feature since being implemented, with some opting not to even bother using it.

    CBT seems to have finally stabilized especially with the v4325 release. I finally went back to using it with v7 and it's been solid and very quiet.

    I am still using the BETA version with v6 and it's been flawless since the BETA program was discontinued prior to the release of v7 (Feb2017)... go figger.
