    Macrium Reflect Pro Differntial

    When I'm doing multiple differential images, let's say with a weekly internal, do I make each subsequent one starting from the last differential or from the initial full image?

    Slow right click I did as you recommended stopping all third party installed entries, but the problem persist. I have a folder with movies in MP4, the first right click on a file is really slow, without closing the folder, the next right click is instantaneous.

    F8 to reboot into safe mode
