    Macrium not backing up my Data Drive


    Im trying to make an image of my laptop partitions but when I open the backup image to explore it
    the D Data Drive is missing
    Below are captures of my backup screen choices as well as the capture of the partitions contained in the image file Why is the backup file not including my D (data partition)??

    Go up to the Backup menu and click on Image Selected Disks....
    Then you can select your second data drive to add to the backup image:

    You are trying to back up your G: drive to itself. Scroll down in the list of drives to backup and uncheck G: drive to remove it from the backup.

    I tried to image my hdd again and when I went to explore the Macrium image file it t only included the d data drive, not the other partitions.
    The target external backup drive is G
    What am I doing wrong????

    When MR starts, as shown in your screenshot, it will show ALL your disks -- and, in fact, ALL of them are checked.

    You have to scroll down to the second disk and CLICK on it to select it.

    Once that is selected, you will see the line that says "Clone this Disk ... Image this Disk" move to the second disk. Select Image this Disk.

    Then, select the destination disk.

    Both Macrium Reflect and Acronis True Image have a little bit of a learning curve. Early on, within MR, I found out I had to un-check the items not of interest for that specific session.
    Before MR, with Norton Ghost and ATI, I learned at that time to name my OS and data partitions names such as S03[YT0]C and S03[YT0]D respectively so that no matter how much drive letters got shuffled, no matter when screens I see in front of me during backups or restores -- I know exactly which physical hard-drive's partition is going to be backed up onto which external hard-drive [it also has a unique name].
