    backing up a flash drive?

    I use software that installs onto a flash drive (for portability). The registration is tied to the flash drive. If I install on a hard drive, I can, of course, image the drive and recover the registered software in case of a system issue.

    How do or can I do that with the flash drive though? I use Macrium Reflect form my backups, but I do not believe MR will image flash drives. Is there a way to do this?

    If I understand thread starter's question[s] correctly, yes, Macrium Reflect certainly can make a full image of the internal HD's OS and data partitions onto another usb 128GB flash drive. If you do this, please purchase two non-CircuitBoard-encryption usb 128GB sticks, and always make an OS and data partition onto two flash drives, not just one.

    ROFL. Many thanks for picking that up. I've corrected the link in my previous post.
