    ShadowProtect in the past with XP and Vista, very reliable but too expensive. Macrium Reflect home edition nowadays, also very reliable and fast (using USB 3.0). I wish they'd offer a discount for two licenses...

    @Arvy,

    That was very puzzling indeed. So much so that all of the suggestions I received from @TheRollbackFrog (and from MR Support) did not resolve the message I received every time I attempted to create the Boot Menu Option (“An error occurred while unmounting the WIM"). While I was quite frustrated at the time I have become accustomed to using a WinPE Recovery UFD (as created by MR) to perform a restore.

    Any WIM mounting/unmounting issue would usually arise during the Reflect "wizard's" creation of some WinPE version rescue build. Merely adding a pointer option into the system BCD boot menu for a successfully created boot image shouldn't require any mounting/unmounting of the WIM itself. However, if you've become accustomed to using your rescue UFD, it provides better "insurance" anyhow if recovery from a total failure situation is ever required.

    @Arvy, the error message to which Jo Ann alluded is the very same one I received and I might add that MR's support team was less than helpful. Like Jo Ann, I too no longer desire that option, so at this point the problem (and solution) is strictly academic.
