    Has this backed up my MS Office as well ?
    You need to create a Macrium Rescue disc to restore the backup. You do this from Macrium itself. See here: Starting with the rescue CD

    Thank you so much for your help. I have done the rescue disk as well. I will come back and let you know in a couple of weeks if all is ok or not.

    It matters not if it didn't work right for me as I still have the recovery partition plus the recovery discs I burned.

    I'm not being sceptical gents but at pushing 80 I've left it a bit late to learn these things, as soon as I learn one thing, another pops up and I forget the first one.

    Well I decided the time is right to have another play and do a recovery using all the wonderful help I received above. It all worked exactly as you said. The instruction given are on here are so clear and the posters so helpful.
    Thanks a million guys.

    Thanks once more, marked as solved.
