    It creates an xml file to accompany the image.
    Opening the xml file starts the recovery.

    I believe you will have to purchase Macrium in order to initiate recovery from the interface. The free version has only boot recovery....at least that's what I experienced when I tried to recover using Macrium. I believe the cost is around $45.
