UEFI for Start-up Disc

Hi, R-Drive Image version 6.X is advertised as supporting UEFI boot mode for the Startup-Disc, however, I can't get this to work on any machine with UEFI. This required me to change the BIOS on machines to Legacy. I have tried generating an ISO and having R-Drive go directly to the USB drive, still no go.

R-Drive Image startup disk


Is the R-Drive Image startup disk generic, or is it tailored to the same machine its created on. For example, could I create a startup disk on machine "A" and perform a restore on machine "B" .

R-Drive Image recovery disc and mapped network drives

I am having a small issue with R-Drive Image. I have used the product for many years, but I only really use the R-Drive Image recovery disc. I generate recovery images for my servers/workstations, and in one environment I create/restore these via a mapped network drive. I successfully did this using a 6.0 version back in Feb 2017. I am now using 6102 (I know there are newer versions available, but I'm not positive this ...

Automatic mount / unmount


I am currently testing the trail version of R Drive and I wanted to see if its possible to schedule a daily backup which first mounts a windows network share - does the backup to this share and then unmounts once its finishes.

The reason is I want to protect from a ransomware attack, if I go down the removable / external HD route then its adding a barrier to my automatic backups.

Cheers ...
