    does the free version of macrium reflect enough ?


    to create an image of my ssd which contain my windows 10 all of my programs all of my data and my images etc

    so I can backup and restore without the need to reinstall everything

    or the paid home version is better ?

    :)

    Correct Format for USB Stick | FAT32? | NTFS? | Some Other Format?

    I'm using Macrium Reflect Free. Macrium doesn't provide support for the Free version. If they did, I'd be asking Macrium my question.

    Macrium does offer a KB and a Forum. The Forum is view-only unless you own a paid version. You cannot post questions without owning a paid version.

    In searching the KB and Forum, I could not find an answer to my question. Thus, I came here.

    Unfortunately, digital imaging software can be expensive, but some programs have free versions. Macrium Reflect does. That can be a great way to learn the software and try it.

    The free version is enough for most.

    The free version is perfectly adequate for your needs. The main difference between the free and paid version is that you can only create differential backups (changes since last full backup) whereas paid version does incremental backups as well (changes since last incremental backup). Incremental backups are more space efficient but for most home users that is no big deal.

    Additionally paid versons can restore to different hardware etc. Rarely needed in home environment, and you can achieve same end for free using native sysprep commands - just a bit harder to do.

    Of course if you buy the paid version you are entitled to customer support from Macrium. Again rarely an issue as Macrium is so reliable.

  6. Also don't forget you cannot do command execution with the free version.
