    Does Macrium Free Have an Autorun Problem?

    I had a Seagate 1T USB Expansion drive plugged in as a drive for Macrium to write to.

    All was fine for a while, I thought and then I got problems with that disk.

    In the finish I ran diagnostic software on it - dskchk and Seatools and I got told it was a problem disk alright.

    I took it off that computer and put it on this one.

    This one declared it was blocking autorun and then accepted it happily and I can read it/write to it, no problems at all and seatools diagnostic tests all run without error.

    So it looks to me like Macium writes an autorun file and that it can be corrupt or something and screw everything up.

    I'm about to delete the autorun.inf on this thing and then take it back and try using it again.

    But I'm gathering any information I can get on this feature if anyone knows anything...

    Perhaps, a Seagate driver creates this autorun.inf, usually containing a drive icon.
    I've never seen such a file from Macrium.

    I'm running MR with 6 external hard drives 2 are eSATA the rest are USB 3.0, in the last 5 years I have never encountered the issue you described, I would suspect your problem is with the hard drive or the chipset on the external case.

    Don't, rename it to autorun.txt instead then open it in Notepad. It's just a text file and what it says should give you a clue as to what created it. I've never seen Macrium create one, so looks like it came from something else.
