    USB drive suitability for Macrium Reflect Rescue media


    Windows 10 ver. 1903

    I want to make a rescue disk/bootable media in order to restore a Macrium Reflect disk image if disaster ever strikes.

    I have:

    1. A usb thumbdrive with various folders and files. I'm not sure it's bootable. I don't want to lose the contents.

    2. An external usb SSD with several folders and the Macrium image of my C: drive. Not sure it's bootable.

    3. A usb thumb drive that is bootable, but has the installation files (ISO?) that I used to install Windows 10 on my new PC.

    Are any of the 3 suitable for making a rescue source so that I could reinstall my saved image to an SSD if something happened to my system?

    I have placed a Macrium Windows boot option on the boot menu

    :)

    They generally do if just restoring / backing up to local or usb drives, but may have issues if you try to use it to say restore from a network drive as network drivers are usually pc specific.

    Also, some older bioses are not fully winpe 10 compatible, and you may need to use an earlier winpe e,g. winpe 5. This should not be an issue for a surface pro 4 though.

    Question about Macrium Reflect Rescue Media

    This is why a usb rescue disk is mandatory.....if the BCD Store where to become corrupt, then the boot entry to boot to the Macrium Reflect Recovery entry would not be available to select This why you should use bcdedit to backup/export your bcd store to that usb or another disk on your system so it can be recovered/imported with bcdedit if need be. hth

    it doesn't show it but on the latest version of Macrium you can create a bootable partition on any usb external disk attached to your system and it will create a boot entry to that partition .
