Perhaps they must have changed that from version 6 and so forth.
Good to know for other people.

Did use it without issues when it was Windows 7. Now a days most of my stuff is backed up to the cloud so haven't tried it with Windows 10.

I could ONLY restore back to the disk I had taken the image from.
There are also other limitations, such as when you take an image of your disk it always saves it in the same folder name so overwrites the previous image (unless you have copied the image to another disk or computer). Macrium lets you keep as many images as you like (in different folders, and you can give the folder any name you like).
The fact that Microsoft have not updated this product for Windows 10 shows you how little faith or interest they have in this product (they also now have File History which gives some backup function).
I think Microsoft want to get out this "imaging" game and leave it to other companies who specialize in it (like Macrium).
As I have said numerous times, Macrium is a quality product and has never let me down in all the more than 100 images I have taken.
There is also a load of features that I have never used that you get if you buy the Reflect product or some of their other products.
As I said I have never paid them a cent / penny, and only ever used the free version (and no I don't work for Macrium, I am ex IBM but now retired)
