    Problems With Macrium Restore


    I have used Macrium for quite a while and been very pleased. However, lately I cannot run a restore successfully. I can backup my drive just fine. But when I try to run a restore, the error Oc000000F comes up instead. This is following the install of the latest Windows updates: KB4532693 and KB4538764. I have essentially eliminated Windows as the culprit by running an repair/install successfully. Windows Update downloaded and installed updates during the process. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Macrium several times to no avail.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is there a resolution? What is an alternative to Macrium if I cannot get the restore process to work? I did create a System Image as a backup measure.

    I believe the error message refers to not being able to find drive specified.

    Is this happening with boot menu or rescue media.


    If boot menu I'm not sure the best root to resolve. Maybe remove in Macrium and then replace.

    If with rescue media I would recreate.

    I use two USB keys for rescue media, so I know I always have one the works. I also don't install their patches for at least a week to allow issues to be worked out.

    Thanks for the quick reply Ken. Macrium seems to be running just fine and does the backup without any issues. It's when I try to restore I get the error. I have tried several times to create a rescue media, but it fails every time because I don't have a DVD drive. I try to write it to an external hard drive, but it just doesn't work.

    There were several Macrium updates that were applied prior to trying the restore. I just wonder if there is an incompatiblity between Windows and Macrium. Guess I should have waited on the Macrium updates? I just don't know what will resolve the issue at this point. Any suggestions would be greatly appeciated.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Recovery media can only be on it's own drive or disk or cd not dvd.

    Otherwise add the recovery to your startup options.

    Please delete all files on USB key and then recreate. Are you using Windows PE or Windows RE to create rescue media.

    I am not so much interested in the Rescue Media as I am with the restore failure.

    Hi,
    Using the recovery media to create and restore is a better way to do it
    OS is off and conflicts gone.

    Thanks for the information. I'll try to create a Rescue Media later today.

    I'm not understanding then.

    There is boot menu or rescue media to do a restore of Windows.

    You need rescue media to boot.


    Maybe you could explain how you are trying to do restore.

    See if you can go into your Bios and check to make sure that the right boot drive is selected.
