    Hi,

    Just reviewed some posts on this site and a lot of people seem to recommend - Macrium Reflect?

    Does is have the same functionalty as the Windows system image functionality?

    I have a C, D and E drive (all on one HDD). I only want to make an image of C and E. Is that possible?

    Cheers

    Leo0123: If those are partitions o the same HHD - I believe you will need to make a separate image of each one. I use Macrium FREE version of the software for my data all the time. Why not post a graphic of that HHD with minitool9.1 or disk-management tool here. Macriuam has worked well for me everytime, and I have restored it a few times. Please send me a note anytime Cliff M. acmanten

    Full and Differential


    Hi,

    HDD is below - it does seem like I can select the partition I want to backup? Should I be ok? for example - I have a empty HDD and then if I restore the image will it work some partitions not included? Or should I do all partitions

    Any recommendations on the settings for full and differential? I just want to keep 3 versions of the last images I have made and no more than that really? So do I have the settings as 1 full and 2 differential?

    Cheers
