    But it "restored" and booted, right? And then started weirding out?
    Everything went like it should, only after I booted to it, it went nuts.. Now, after cloning, no problems at all. In a day or so, when I'm sure it's alright, I'll clean old disk and try the other way, from image on this disk on old one.

    After making those backups did you have MR verify them?? I always check everyone myself.

    OK, so today I restored to first, smaller (Kingston V300 120GB ) disk and it worked fine first and than the second time. Same conditions, same .mring, same rescue disk, disk cleaned up, re-partitoned, formatted etc., same routine I do all the time since time immemorial (for me). It worked fine, no problems during or after.
    So, now I'm left confused should I trust it or not.
    Just to reiterate once more, all 4 disks inside the box (2xSSD, 2xHDD) are 100% good in any respect and windows backed up are in perfect order. System itself is OCed but pass every reliability test I threw at it (another custom of mine).

    I could be wrong here Mike, but I thought you said at one time, that you tried restoring an image file unto your new drive, and that failed, and then you used the clone feature on MR and that was successful ?? Those are 2 different ways are they not?

    Yes, different things they are. Clone is a direct copy, byte by byte of everything on both disks. Backup restore is same bits but stored on another place in this case in a .mring file that can be opened up by in this case Macrium Reflect resident service or or bootable Rescue disk/USB made by same program. Than it transfers everything to a disk to be exactly same as it was when backup was made, same bits, same order, everything. In either case (clone or backup) result should be exactly same.
    In first instance backup has failed me (3 times) while cloning was flawless and may I say much faster because of two SSDs involved while .mring file was on a HDD and it went somewhat slower.
