    Macrium question


    A Macrium image of C: generally contains several partitions. When I make a change in (one of) the partitions (size or number) in C:, are older Macrium images still usable?

    You can recover individual partitions. You can also mount any partition in a Reflect image as a virtual drive and copy files / folders.

    Normally if your PC is unbootable you will need to recover all partitions to your system drive including the hidden system partitions.

    I recommend at each backup session: make a full image of each hidden partition and the OS partition. When you have to restore the OS partition, you restore the hidden partitions also -- finally, you then reboot.

    Thanks for reactions, but maybe my question was not clear enough.
    If a Macrium image contains several (also hidden) partitions, is it necessary for a recovery that the disk, to be recovered, has the same number of partitions with the same sizes or are the partitions in the image automatically substituted?

    No, Reflect will do this for you and you can adjust the partition sizes if you wish. You can recover to a clean disk if you wish.

    Thanks, that is what I wanted to know. I use Macrium regularly, but never modified the partitions on my disk.
