    Restoring backup


    Hi
    I have windows 10 installed on an SSD.

    I backup the entire SSD using Macrium Reflect Free. I now want to restore the windows 10 installation.

    Do I need to restore the entire SSD or can I just restore the C partition ?

    Whats the best way ?
    Thanks

    Should be enough, although I always just do the whole disk, as those couple gigs might take 10 seconds longer.

    Thanks - I'll try C: first and do the full disk if needed.

    You're welcome. If you have a D: (data) partition, like a laptop user, of course you want that up-to-date, so being able to do just the C: partition is a good feature on the free version.

    The restore worked really well and all is backup and working.

    Thanks

    I always do a COMPLETE restore with Macrium, as I notice the other partition, #1 partition besides C: says for example 338MB yet the restore image say it's 312MB, so data must be getting saved there, so good to backup and restore ALL partitions that are connected to C: So I always backup and restore all 4 partitions connected to C:.
