    1903 upgrade mandatory?

    It's all down to personal preference but as long as I'm in control with my regular round of full backup images (I maintain the three most recent backups on an external drive.) I don't worry and have personally never suffered any update problems.

    1903 upgrade mandatory?

    They are not "mandatory" but have had some good testing before full release and ultimately you need to keep up to date for all sorts of reasons. I always make a regular full backup image using the free version of Macrium Reflect - then if I do have problems I can run a full recovery.

    Macrium boot question

    If you want to create a backup using Macrium you do it under Windows but if you wish to run a restore from a backup obviously you cannot overwrite Windows whilst running it. That is what the menu option is for - it will boot you into Macrium by running Windows PE (pre-installed environment)...

    Macrium backup question

    Given the ease with which which you can download and reinstall all from scratch I'd do a full remove of verything.

    Macrium backup question

    Reason I suggested a reinstall is that failing to copy from the boot image on drive C would imply that the PE files need restoring. Yes I would also clean up after the reinstall - maybe us ccleaner and physically remove the Macrium folder from C:\boot before reinstall if anything remains there.
