    Macrium Reflex brand new user - totally confused


    After having a dead computer, I'm trying to set up my new one correctly. Seems like everyone loves Macrium, so I downloaded their free version. I also watched on-line tutorials and read lots of posts about it, but I'm way past confused at this point. All I was trying to do to start was a disk image, and I don't understand word one about the screen I'm looking at. It shows:

    MBR Disk 1
    F:\\ (which is one of my internal hard drives on which I keep all my data files.)

    GPT Disk 2
    1 System (none) FAT32 (LBA Primary
    2 None - Unformatted Primary
    3 Windows C:\\ NTFS Primary (my other internal hard drive which holds all my system/program files
    4 Windows RE Tools (none) NTFS primary

    GPT Disk 3
    1 EFI (none) FAT32 (LBA Primary)
    2 E:\\ Unformatted Primary (my external hard drive for backups)

    I can't figure out what all this really means. I've tried checking everything but E, and press Image this Disk, but the next page is gobbeltygook to me too. I can't find a way to tell it to put the image on my E drive.

    Is there anywhere I can go to get some real beginner kind of instructions? For someone who doesn't know what FAT32 or LBA Primary, NTFS, or a heap of other things are? I read the tutorials but it's just not working for me. I don't want to waste your time, but I just want to do a backup (then differential backups) and image my system.


    WINVER Info is: Version 1909 (Build 18363.1139

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.
