    Yes, but I meant - the drive you were making an image of - where is it? You can't make another image of it; it's been erased or something?
    Yes, I reinstalled my laptop. First made an image (to have a copy of the data), and then did a clean install.

    I'm suspecting our new-found friend had the first image file on a temporary, RAM-disk?, media. Once having rebootied, the temporary contents if not saved onto permanent media - vanished forever.
    When you boot from a Macrium Rescue drive it creates a temporary X drive which holds the Macrium mini winpe OS.

    OPs mistake was to select ths drive to make backup to (I am surprised it was even allowed). So, in a multi file image backup, first image was written to a drive that is only temporary.

    There is no solution.

    OP - you do not need to boot from a Rescue Drive in order to make backups. Had uou mafe backup running Macrium from Windows, you would not have had an issue.

    I give my partitions and hard-drives unique names so that I always know what hard-drive and what partition any particular backup or restore operation is "aimed at".

    Have you read and understood OPs issue?

    This reply does not relate to OPs problem.

    True, not for THIS specific thread, however, for all future backup operations done by the OP and by others, this naming idea will at least alert the user as to what hard-drive and what partition the backup is involved; and, perhaps this alert will prevent accidentally using the USB boot (or any RAM-disk) to begin storing a backup image upon.
