    Evaluate the commercial versions of Macrium Reflect 7 by downloading a 30-Day Trial Edition.

    OK, I have it installed. Now some questions.
    - Should I keep AOMEI Backupper or delete it and start over new with Macrium Reflect?
    - Slightly out of context but when I upgraded to W10, was my old W7 OS stored on my HD and if so, could or should I remove it to save some HD Space?

    Thanks for the help and direction with Macrium!

    You have to ask it to. Click where it says "Tools"

    When I downloaded it, it was in preparation of the W10 upgrade so I did not take much time to look at all of it's features. I will go back and do that and check to see if it created boot media at the same time. Thanks for the heads up on this.

    Windows will clean up, or should clean up your old W7 after 10 days.

    Look at your c: drive, do you see a folder called windows.old. If so it is still there.

    Macrium is going to compress your data so it won't use one for one.

    and just confirming, Macrium is free. Yes there is a purchased version with some more bells and whistles. Should you want to upgrade they do run sales, normally 20% off but they have been as high as 50%.

    There is a Macrium thread here

    New Macrium Reflect Updates [2]

    that you can subscribe too. I usually wait a week or two after each new release before upgrading.

    I don't see any folders named "windows.old" so it must have deleted it already. Thanks for the information on Macrium but I still would like to know if I should I keep the AOMEI Backupper backup or delete it and start over new with Macrium Reflect backup. I think I only did a full disc backup and left out the imaging. I had the backupper make all of the files visible but I did not see anything that looked like an imaging file. My external drive still has 130 GB of space left on it. Would I be able to have both?

    How big is the current AOMEI backup file? If it's less than 130GB you should be okay.

    That one folder is showing to be 577 GB. It was a complete HD backup. I am assuming that it contains the image file as well. This was a complete disk backup done in W7 before I upgraded to W10. I say that I am assuming that it contains the image file which is based on my understanding of this particular procedure as defined by AOMEI. Here is their description...
    Disk Backup is used to back up all partitions including the system partition and boot partition on the specific disk you select to an image file. That means if you back up a system disk via Disk Backup, after restoring it, the system can boot normally.

    Yes, that is what an image backup is.How full is the boot drive, how much free space.
    No way you are going to fit 500+GB into 130GB so you have two choices.

    1. Get another 2TB external drive and do a Macrium backup to it.
    2. Get another 2TB external drive and move the 577GB AOMEI backup from the older external drive to the new drive.

    #1 would be my choice. Create folder called Macrium Backups and put the Macrium backup there, and all future backups as well.

    Is there any reason I should keep the AOMEI backup at this point?
