I have just purchased a Western Digital 1TB external USB HD that I am going to use exclusively for Reflect disk images.  I have created a folder on the drive to store the images.  The folder destination path is D:\Images.  As I begin the steps to define the image and specifically after selecting the destination folder, Reflect displays the message, "The Destination Path is Included in the Image.  Please select a Different Folder" (see attachment).
Can anyone help me see what I'm missing?  I have defined image backups many times to other backup drives without getting this message.
Thank you.http://forum.macrium.com/uploads/images/17531c6e-d33a-4a7b-b318-3506.jpg

It's telling you that the destination drive (or at least its partition that you want to use as the backup image location) has been included in your selections for what to back up.  You need to uncheck that drive ("D:") in your choices for the "Image selected disks on this computer" option and then you'll be able to select it when choosing the destination location for the backup image.

Well, now I feel like a real Bozo!!  Yes, after taking another look I see that the "D" drive was checked.  Unchecked the box and back in business.  Very bad case of Cranial Rectitis. 
Thank you for your help!

No need for any embarrassment at all.  It's very easy to overlook a mere checkmark, and I can assure you that I've made plenty of stupider mistakes myself.

I don't get it. The usb drive to which I want to back up my pc is listed at the bottom of the page. And the circle next to it cannot be unchecked. Please tell me exactly where to find this box that I'm supposed to uncheck. I don't see it.

When you select "Image Selected Disks on this Computer"  Reflect pre-selects your source disk and all its partitions (see attachment).  You will see a checkbox to the left of the source disk as well as a checkbox below each partition.  Sometimes it checks the destination disk by mistake.  Depending on how many disks are shown on the page, you may have to scroll down to find the mistakenly checked box.  Uncheck that box and you should be good to go,

As far as I know, there is no "circle" with a check.  It is a square.

I just noticed you posted in the V6 section.  My answer was based on V8.

Thanks for your reply. So I'm to uncheck one of the square boxes at the top of the screen. Well, I have 10 entries (boxes) on my SSD that I want to back up. So, I've gone through the entire SSD unchecking each box one by one and then clicking on "Next". I get the same error message "The destination disk...." So apparently my destination disk is not listed at the top of the screen. Is there an earlier version of Macrium Reflect to which I can drop back to that will simply show my disk to be backed up at the top of the screen and the destination at the bottom of the screen with a simple "Next" command without troubling me with this pesky error message? Macrium Reflect used to be so easy to use but I've wasted 4 hours of my free time trying to back up my SSD. Maybe you need to fork Macrium and make a simple to use home version for people like me and continue the current version for iT specialists.

I didn't explain that very well.  Scroll down until you find the your destination disk listed.  That box on the left may be checked and should not be.

Scroll the view of disks at the top of the Backup screen.   Do you see any more SOURCE disks? Is your DESTINATION disk also selected?    The error message is given when you try to backup FROM a disk and put the backup on the SAME DISK.  That is not allowed.    You could post a screen shot of what you're seeing that confuses you.
And are you really using Version 6 of Reflect?   If not, what version are you using?
