    The old Ashampoo 2016 did it last time before it gave up in 6-7 hrs... MR File zise 138 GB, but Ashampoo likely much bigger as I saved 3 backups each time.
    MR is efficient and doesn't back up empty space. It also uses compression.

    Good morning for you when you read this ....

    I like your use of the icon Tore - made me laugh after coming home from the crazy outer world.

    Question for you for the morning when you read this: Have you ever opened your PC and replaced the SSD or HDD drives?

    I hope you are feeling better and in your shoes today, unlike yesterday.

    Good morning, Steve, and thank you for your last post.

    Today I feel like I am back in my shoes after successfully completed my first MR backup. But the success was not complete as I forgot the USB stick. Can that be created later or do I have to start from square one again?

    Correction. Yes, what I thought was a SSD was a HDD I did not find the invoice but this info was printed on the sticker on the back of the disk. Well, whatever, it is not really important as long as it is healthy.

    Yes, after Windows 10 came on the market Microsoft opened up for earlier OPs to upgrade to 10 for free. At that time when I decided to do that I cloned the HDD with Windows 7 in my PC to a Samsung SSD and replaced the HDD with the SSD. With Windows 7 on the SSD I upgraded to Windows 10. I also upgraded my PC with 4 GB extra RAM to 8 GB.

    Hello Tore,
    You can create the MR Rescue USB any time you like. Your backup image you made is unaffected by whether you make the USB or not. The Rescue USB is very handy to have as it can be used to repair a PC that won't boot and of course make a MR backup or restore a MR backup image.

    Since you have experience going inside the PC, if you have a spare drive or the original HDD drive, you could remove the current working boot drive from the PC, put in the "test" drive, boot from the MR Rescue USB, and restore the backup image of your boot drive to this "test" drive, then when the restore is finished, remove the MR Rescue USB and confirm the PC boots from the test drive. The point of this optional exercise would be to give you confidence that you made the backup correctly and see that MR can be successfully used to restore a drive. Again, this is strictly optional - I know it made me feel good to go through this exercise when I first started using MR.

    And of course the "test" drive will be overwritten, but your current working boot drive would be safely out of the test

    It should be asked:

    When you made your MR backup image, did you verify it? Either automatically or manually?

    As in these two images from the MR backup definition file:

    This process, usually done immediately after the image backup, ensures the newly created image can be read successfully and the integrity matches the data.

    If it was not verified, it still can be. I'll be glad to supply a few pics and short instructions if needed.
