    Macrium 6 used 15 DVD+R's to Image 83.01 GB in WIN 10 Pro


    Macrium Reflect Home 6 used 15 Verbatim DVD+R's and took OVER 2 Hours to Image my WIN 10 Pro (83.01 GB) on my new Dell Desktop XPS-8700. Is this Normal ??

    Windows 10 Clean Install

    Best way is to put image on external hard drive. Takes about 30-40 minutes. I would not trust having the image on all those DVDs

    I have a new Seagate 1.5 TB External USB Hard Drive I used to use with WIN 7 and NovaBACK. I tried to BACKUP (Image) my entire Computer with MR6 and the USB HD but could NOT get MR6 to work like that !! Please Help !!

    EDIT: ninja'd

    A DVD+R usually holds 4.7GBs of data. 83GBs divided by 15 is 5.5GBs. Since Macrium compresses the image, yeah, that sounds about right. The time frame also sounds right for burning DVDs. Now, all of that said, DVDs are not a good way of backing up a hard drive. An external hard drive would be more reliable, faster and it would allow you to make additional, newer images. Something like this would be a good option.

    Wen:

    15-18 DVDs are about right due to compression. You have to figure out why Macrium Reflect 6 Home does not write to external USB hard drive.

    Office Depot just have a sale for 128 GB USB Sandisk Ultra for $29! Consider buy one and no more insert 15 DVDs and they reusable!

    IT DOES Write an Image (Backup) to a USB Hard Drive, and I even ran from MR Rescue Media CD and it found the External Hard Drive and the Image File.

    It only took 14.54 minutes to save the ENTIRE COMPUTER Image to the Seagate 1.5 TB External Hard Drive (USB) !!

    NOW........................what do I do with 30 Verbatim DVD+R's ??

    THANKS Everyone who Helped Me !! :-)

    Save as a second backup? Not sure how they would serve as coasters or furniture leg sliders.

    I imagine that would depend on her taste in music.
    Seriously, though, I reckon you could, but the question is whether the device in her car can play them - probably best addressed in another type of forum....

    You are CORRECT !! She has a CD PLAYER and I doubt if it can handle DVD+R's !! Thanks !!

    BTW we BOTH like the same Music............Smooth Jazz & 70's Rock !! :-)
