    memory sticks/flash drive 7th Feb 18 at 2:02 PM
    I need a memory stick to back up pictures and documents, so I need a good one.
    Has anyone had a Toshiba memory stick.
    Otherwise, which brand is best, SanDisk, Integral, Cruiser or Kingston?

    Thank you but how do I do that?

    you don't want to do that, it will overwrite your current data with old data. The macrium premise was incorrect, macrium/restore/explore image will allow you to browse the contents of a previous backup without restoring or using boot media

    macrium is best used for backups of boot drives or whole systems, though it can be used for both C: and D: partitions separately.

    internal (is that what d: is?) data drives or partitions can be backed up with copy and paste

    the slow times you are experiencing could have various reasons, you need to put some times and sizes of a copy and paste operation in a post for anyone to advise if it's abnormal - macrium logs the speed of transfer too
