Windows 10: Macrium Reflect does not find image file

    Macrium Reflect does not find image file


    Been trying M. Reflect free edition on a Dell Studio XPS 8000. I did as usual and created a boot rescue CD with the PE file with no problem. Then I continued to make an image of my boot disk C and save it on my hard drive D.
    Went to D and the image is there.
    Next I booted with the restore disk without problems, but after choosing restore, I can't find the image that was created on the D hard drive. I noticed that the naming of the drives also has changed and as such I looked everywhere but I can't find the image and as such I can't restore.
    Please advise.

    1) Which version of Macrium Reflect are you using (AND built the Rescue CD with)? Latest is v6 (6.0.753)
    2) Is your "D" and internal drive or an external drive?
    3) If you haven't already, it's much easier to spot the drive you're looking for if you assign a name to the drive/volume. Example: right click on the D drive in File Explorer, select Properties, and enter a volume name at top of the General tab, something like "Macrium Data", perhaps. If the Rescue PE environment is using a different drive letter than D, having a name like that makes it easier to spot.

    It would be easier to help with the 1) & 2) above answered. Note that Donetao's link is for v5 - not that it's much different from v6.

    Have you tried "Browse for an image?
    Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the reply. I downloaded the latest free version (6) and my backup drive is an internal separate drive (D) Actually the D drive does have a name and I can't find it when trying a restore.

    If you have the latest free version of Macrium. You can click on "Add recovery boot menu option" at the top. That's the way I get into Macrium . This is a new feature and I really like it. I don't have to look for the rescue CD any more! Works great!.

    Cliff S posted what should have been my 3rd question just before I got to editing my post - you've drilled into the "Browse for an Image" on the Restore tab?

    Also, it would be helpful if you could post a screen shot of what Windows Disk Management displays for your disks.
