    Macrium Reflect restore over corrupt drive?


    This morning I had a computer crash . Somehow it got stuck on an upgrade . I Booted into system restore and tried to restore to earlier date. Error message came up indicating I had drive issues so I continued with the offer to scan and repair the drive. After drive was "fixed" by windows , I could not proceed with the restore by clicking on next. Its like I am getting an loop of disc errors. I went back to the restore dialog and then chose a restore point .Computer started Restoration but then had an error that indicated it could not restore due to some problem with candy crush ! I then shut down the computer . Restarted it and went thru the HP Diagnostics and everything looked OK so HP diagnostics let me restore the computer ...but this time I had to enter my password to my msoft account and the restoration went smoothly.

    My question is :

    If I had failed to restore the computer via windows restore process due to disc errors , Could I use a very recent image of my disk made with Macrium Reflect v6 ? Would Macrium work despite windows detection of disk errors?

    Have you made the Macrium Reflect Rescue USB bootable stick?
    Where are the image backups stored? Should be on a separate drive. Can't be on same drive as OS is installed.

    Updated:
    If the disk has errors than you will have to repair the disk before be able to use Macrium Reflect. Sorry.

    A Macrium restore and a disk error are two different stories at different levels. If you have disk errors, you have to fix those first - e.g. with a chkdsk. Macrium cannot help you in that.

    If the disk errors are NOT mechanical Then yes, depending on above questions and answers.
    Macrium Rescue USB Bootable stick made prior to crash . The image is on a desktop USB drive so not in same drive as OS.

    Good question, make another usb disk putting this program on your stick. This can do repairs like chkdsk to your C drive.

    This is a lot different, think you might be surprised!!! Has many features that you can use to make repairs.
    I would make this now, and boot it up, so you can see all the features. This program is also made by one of our members Kyhi

    I am trying to make the bootable drive using rufus but not sure of the selections to choose:
    a)Which of the 3 partition scheme to choose
    b) File System Fat 32? If fat32 then what cluster size.

    Tks
