    Unable to make back up with Macrium Reflect


    I've been trying for a couple of weeks to make my first backup with Macrium but it always fails. Ppl suggested it was because I was using a USB hub however I have now tried without the hub and still no success.

    I keep receiving;
    Backup aborted'7E8326625D1F7602-00-00.mrimg' Verification failed at 0% (Block 10955 hash value is incorrect).
    I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, Version1909 OS build 18363.900 and I loaded the new version of Reflect last night just n case the new version would help.

    Thank you for any help.

    Cheers

    What media are you doing the backup to? A USB attached disk drive, a USB memory stick, or what?
    Does the backup media test error free? Can you do a bad block scan on it to see if it is error free?
    I've used Macrium for a long time on both WinXP, Win7, and Win10 and have not had an error like this.
    I always verify the image after making a backup and I don't recall ever seeing a verification failure.

    You need to run a full disk check on both source and target as its finding bad blocks

    RealZeal -- HardDisk Sentinal, free or fee, can run from quick to a little-more-thorough HDD tests on both source and targets. The pay-for version can a sector by sector read test, which will take a while, depending upon HDD byte-size.

    Tks guys;

    I've run chkdsk on everything, no errors or problems anywhere.

    I'm using a La Cie portable hard drive connected via USB.

    Good job running chkdsk :) I recommend a one-pass sector read test next.

    Do you use third party antivirus? If so try disabling it during backup & verification.
    Have you tried creating the image but not auto verifying then manually verifying when the backup is complete?
    Can you try a different cable?

    Hi there
    Try creating the stand alone bootable rescue media and try running that.

    Macrium invariably works --if it doesn't then there's something more fundamentally wrong.

    It's not like a repairer of Swiss Watches needs a Bolt Cutter to do his job !!!

    Did you run a block level surface scan? Running CHKDSK on the filesystem is will not find bad blocks in free space.

    Tks for all the suggestions.
    I did disable the AV but that didn't help.
    I've now tried an old Seagate portable HD I'm not using as my destination and reduced my source to just my single SSD that has windows on it and ... it worked. Yay.

    I'll experiment now to see where the weak link is and report back so anyone who is interested can see.

    Cheers

    Oops, forgot to hit send on the last.
    Ran another backup last night and it failed, this one back on the La Cie so looks like that is the culprit. I'll try the other scans suggested on that disk but it's odd since I've had no problems with it.
