Yes, however, I want to know if anything in the backup system has a problem. So I always check the 'verify' box when doing Macrium image backups...

One of my gripes about the otherwise very good Macrium package is that there doesn't seem to be a way to make "verify after backup" a default. I have to manually go into the options dialogue and check it every time.

This is very easy to do if you create a Backup Definition File which stores the verify option. In fact Reflects invites you to create such a file. I schedule backups which also runs the Verify option. Note you can use the viBoot feature to boot an image to a virtual machine as a further check you can boot the image.
