    https://youtu.be/ZfQ6xB3pCh4 I found this video which answers my question. I never recovered within Windows using Macrium but always booted to Macrium where I located the image, then recovered.

    I've been using Paragon backup and restore home and it has worked for all of those things.

    Are you using it on UEFI hardware? It was the lack of a recovery disk/USB that would boot on UEFI that sent me to Macrium, I wondered if Paragon could do that now?

    I am sticking with Macrium b/c the rescue discs they provide make recovery with either Linux for the older BIOS or WinPE for UEFI easy.

    I think I read that Paragon does attend to UEFI but am not sure.

    Yes, I am. Secure boot on, uefi, and GPT partitioning. I switched from Acronis to Paragon right when 8 came out. I think I had the 12 version and now the 14 version and both have worked great.
