    This one. Click on this one. The one named Ronbins. That is the WD drive used for the Macrium backup you did. Click the folder inside that you will see, and post that picture.

    Ok, I'm satisfied that the backup did what it was supposed to do.

    I'm obliged to point out a few things to you.

    1. It is so large because you have not looked at the data you have stored on the C: drive.
    2. It took 2 1/2 hours plus, due to same reason.
    3. That is an image only, it was not verified during the backup process, as setup by the Macrium personnel.
    4. If a verify were included, it would have doubled the time.
    5. A verify is not mandatory, but it helps ensure the integrity of the backup data.

    These are only statements of fact. If you choose to leave all as is, none of this will change.

    What would you like to do next?

    WD Elements


    When I opened C: I couldn't find any files or folders. As for verifying, I didn't know there was such a thing. Something else to learn about. I would suggest the best thing for now is to leave things as they are but, I would like to know how and when verifying takes place and where also, where after a backup, I can find my folders and files in case I ever need to retrieve a file. I am going for a cup of tee, my domestic and financial manageress has just arrived home. Won't be long.

    Ok, back....

    First things first....

    If you don't mind, please go back to the cleanup thread, make one last post indicating your intentions to leave all "as is", and mark the thread "Solved". You can find that button at the top of the screen on the first page of the thread. That way, all will know not to continue posting solutions or asking questions. OK?

    Went back to the first page but could not find the button at the top of the screen so I put it in writing.
