Macrium Reflect - Backup Restore - Windows 10 Forums
It would be super easy if you used the feature to add Macrium to your boot menu - it's a feature that Macrium can automatically add for you, and will give you the option to boot to Macrium from your hard drive. But, it will be there at every boot, so if that bothers you, don't do it. You can set the time it shows to a minimum (like 1 or 2 seconds), and so it shouldn't be a bother. It sure does come in handy, especially on laptops and tablets. I have done it and it's really a great feature.
If you have any questions, please ask. But, Kari just wrote this tutorial in the past week or so, and it's completely up-to-date, and he is an excellent tutorial writer, so I think you will have no problems following it.
I don't have time right now to delve into the rest of your message, so this is just to let you know that Drive H, which is a Seagate, is about to be wiped and removed, as it has been replaced by the WD Passport, and I've made the changes needed for that.=DavidY;791771]I see that all the VSS Writers claim 'No Error' (perhaps optimistically).
So am I right in thinking your disk setup looks like this? :
- Main disk with
- C: drive
- System drive (incidentally I wanted to check that Offline was set to No; it was)
- Recovery Tools
- Recovery Partition ('Image')
- A WD Passport drive with encryption (I have something similar) which
- Emulates a CD drive on drive F: so you can type in a password, and
- Has drive K: for data once you've unlocked it
- Drive H: which is a Freeagent (Seagate?) drive, which if I remember rightly is the one you were trying to backup to in the first place?
- DVD/CD drive as drive E:
So, by booting into the Macrium Rescue Environment, we can create an image of a partition, and verify that Macrium is working properly.
Then, it was suggested that you make one complete and verified Hard Drive Image, so that we have a recovery point, as we move forward with somewhat more aggressive attempts to resolve the VSS issue.
Once you have the entire hard drive imaged and verified, we can move forward.
Please post a screenshot of Macrium, opened, and showing your drives as they are now (while in your W10 OS).
