I have scheduled full images, differentials and incrementals. I'm wondering what files Macrium would pick up for restoring.

Suppose the last file is an incremental. Will it use all the incrementals + the full ? Or all the incrementals up to the last differential, then that differential, + the full ?

And if the last file is a differential, will it use that differential, + the full ?

Your assumptions are correct.  The RESTORE operation will only restore up to the time point you have selected.

During any restore operation, REFLECT will use what's minimally necessary to get you, accurately, to your selected time point.  It doesn't use everything, just what's required to get you there... the most recent FULL, the most recent DIFF and the most recent INCs using whatever's available.

Yes, and you would even have the option of deleting Incs 1-3, and you would still be able to restore Inc 4.
