Didn't see this particular question covered in any of the other Macrium Reflect threads.
I've used Macrium Reflect on a Win7 laptop to create a backup image. I had Reflect write the image to a 500Gb Memorex external drive, which apparently is formatted as FAT32. Therefore, because of the FAT32 limitations, Reflect created multiple 4Gb images sequentially, rather than one larger image as it did on my NTFS MyBook that's attached to my desktop PC.
My question is, if ran another backup and had it write the image to my laptop's NTFS drive, it would create one large image file. And if I then copied that to the Memorex drive, would that image be functional in the event that I needed to use it in an emergency? In other words, if I copied a larger-than-4-GB image to a FAT32 drive, could it be accessed and used successfully in an emergency to restore my Windows partition? Or, do I instead need to format the current FAT32 drive as NTFS and re-run Reflect, creating the backup on the newly formatted external drive?
I realize that the multiple images as they currently exist on the FAT32 drive can be used as-is with success. I just prefer a single image file.
