    How is Macrium restore used on pc with an SSD for OS and hdd for data


    I have a laptop that has an SSD for its OS and program file and a second hdd for data
    I have made a cloned backup image of my laptop

    If one of my laptops drives should happen to fail how would I restore the drive that failed using the cloned image?

    By physically removing the failed disk and replacing it with the cloned disk. If all you actually have is a disk image, that won't work.

    I'm confused, how does a person have one clone of two separate drives on one external device? Or, do I misunderstand?

    Thanks for your response...could you please clarify it. Lets say the SSD fails or the separate data drive fails. Would you remove both drives and just replace the one cloned target hdd in their place???

    Roland I'm confused too!
    When I make the macrium clone backup I assume its copying the SSD drive with the OS on it AND the second 'data ' hard disk drive.
    Is that not a correct assumption??

    Provlima, I think I understand, maybe! You did one of the following:
    -- you made a full image of each physical hard-drive onto one external hard-drive; or
    -- you made a clone of your SSD on one external hard-drive and a clone of your data HDD onto another external hard-drive
    Which one of the above did you do?

    To directly answer your question:
    If the OS SSD "goes bad" -- you need only to restore that OS SSD
    If the data HDD "goes bad" -- you need only to restore that data HDD

    Thanks for your quick response
    I cloned the OS which was on the SSD and the data hdd on the external backup drive.

    Is this the same as the term "full image" you used?

    Should I have also cloned the 450mb "recovery" partition too?

    You really need to get straight the difference between "cloning" and "imaging". This has been explained to you in several different ways in your several different recent threads. Here's a link to a good place to read about the differences: https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/di...ng+and+cloning

    "...I cloned the OS which was on the SSD and the data hdd on the external backup drive.
    Is this the same as the term "full image" you used?"
    Ok, I'm assuming translation is mixing cloning with imaging.
    You made full images of both your SSD and your HDD onto a single external HD.
    So, if the OS SSD goes bad, you restore the OS image,
    if the Data HDD goes bad, you restore the data image.
