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.

>>Thank you for the idea. I will look into Paragon.

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.
