    EXCELLENT!
    Thanks!

    Edit~OK I clicked "details pane" and chose this file libexif.dll
    It didn't tell me what it was for.

    I had to Google to find out it was a Chrome dll.
    (I tried to switch to Chrome but went back to Firefox)

    fireberd that is where Clonezilla comes in handy, but there is a catch. If the original install was say Windows 7 or Windows 8. 8.1.1 does not update the recovery partition, unless you physically install a OEM copy. That is where things will get a wonky with 10, when it comes out in July. There has to be a way to put 10 on a DVD or USB stick, then have it load a clean install with a restore partition, and OS partition.

    I have not played with it, because right now I just waiting for it to come out in July. The really bad thing is that Google is readying Chrome for 10, so they are attempting to rid Chrome of third party items like Adobe Reader, Silverlight, Nuance Reader as NAPI's.

    I got into a problem with Cups on Xubuntu 15.04, that it will only print blank pages to our Brother Laser, when trying to print from within Chrome. They screwed something up with Cups, that it does not work properly with DNSSD.

    I just updated my Imaging and came upon an option I don't understand.
    A box was checked off (on) about backing up as a "XML Backup Definition File"
    I left the box checked but have no idea if I should have.

    The definition file appears in the Macrium Reflect main window on the Backup Definition Files tab, this saves all the settings for current backup and you can re-use for the next backup without having to reconfigure on how you want to backup again.

    Uncheck it if you dont't need it. I normally do

    OK...this has me a little concerned since I've never done a "set-up"
    I just opened the program and clicked "image" all files.

    Is there a possibility I don't have a proper backup?

    If you have imaged all files you probably have more than you need. A straightforward method is to select "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup Windows" This will image everything you need but generally does not image the Recovery Partition if you currently have one. If in doubt, create another image and keep or delete the first one. Always Verify the image before you are done.

    Thanks for the reply.

    This is something I haven't done.
    I guess I better do it again tomorrow.
    Is the "verify" button easy to find?

    Select Restore, you will see the Verify selection to the right next to the image file.
