    Dan,

    That depends on your setup, how many machines, and how you use them. It's certainly not a one-size-fits-all!

    My favorite is the one that reports your hardware/software configuration as I use that one to test out new stuff I learn and I'm constantly adding to it. I try to keep it heavily commented so others can learn from it also.

    For your convenience I started a new thread in Windows Programming and posted the latest version along with a link to the original thread, too old to reply to.

    HTH
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    A Macrium Reflect backup file is created in a proprietary format with a .mrimg extension. If you want to read specific file(s) from the backup, you have to mount the file (using Macrium) and assign it a drive letter. Then you can extract the file(s) and do what you wish with them.

    Not surprised but thought I'd ask the question just to be sure.
    Thanks for your info.
