    Safest way to make Macrium backups?


    Although I do not think that it is relevant to this post, I am currently using Windows 10 Pro Version 1909, build 18363.836.

    For years, I've been making Macrium backups of my OS drive the easy way: running the program in Windows and making the backup. But I've bought a new computer, and before I start using it, I would like to know whether I should change this practice when backing it up.

    Does running Macrium within Windows run the risk of introducing problems into the backup's Windows installation (due to Windows being running while the snapshot is being made)? Is it safer to run Macrium from a bootable rescue DVD and make the backup from there, so as not to risk the system image having registry errors or some other such problem?

    :)

    I don't find this happening..

    Just once with this laptop relatively recently I found the user profile service failed to log me on.. I used a system restore point in this instance.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    For whatever reason, it's always been more frequent for me, with multiple computers that I've had over the years.

    Is there any way to set it so that a USB can automatically (without having to press any of the F keys) display a message to tap any key to boot from it like I get with the DVD?

    Also, is it safe to run a restore from a flash drive if the flash drive is plugged into a mains-powered external USB 3.0 hub?
