Hello! I have recently discovered imaging software and I have some questions I need answered before I really start using it. I will be using the free version of Macrium Reflect. I have already successfully tested that it works on my system. So here are the questions: 1. How reliable are these kind of programs? Can I for example restore an image to revert an installation of a program I wasn't happy with or are they mostly used after a computer crash or virus infection or similar? How do you use yours? 2. I have reduced the maximum size Windows system restore may use from 50gb to 10gb. Could this cause any problems when using Macrium Reflect? I have read somewhere that you should not disable system restore if you're using an imaging software (or was it the other way around??). 3. I will store my images on an external harddrive. For convenience I would like to always keep the ext harddrive plugged in to my computer. Is this dangerous in any way? Thank you.
