Restoring the entire system with Macrium is absolutely no problem. I
have done that already several times - some for test, some for real.
Worked beautifully. And the recovery user interface is really easy too.
There is hardly anything you can do wrong. The fastest recovery (of a
Win7 system) was 12 minutes - from an internal HDD to a SSD. From an
external USB attached disk, it would take longer.
Make a test with a non-critical partition. If you have no extra
partition, shrink a few Gigs from your C and create an extra partition.
Then copy some data into there. Take an image of that little partition
and restore it again. You'll see how it works and it will raise your
confidence. When you are done, you can always delete the little extra
partition and add it back to C.
