    I copied and pasted your earlier command and the result is attached in my previous post. I think you missed that attachment.

    All I saw is the screen shot of sfc /scannow command and it said you don't have the correct version.

    Listen. You got it all wrong. It was not meant to be a critism and if I offended you in any way then my apologies to you.
    I've already stated that since OP was not comfortable using Mini Tool so I gave him the alternative. However, I do respect your opinion but don't be over exaggerated.

    Now, I asked you 2 questions: 1) Did you try it before making a statement: too difficult and too time consuming ? and I got no answer. 2) Did you try what I asked to see if increasing the size using Mini Tool in your PC would work, still no answer.
    I tried using MR myself because never knew MR could edit partitions, only had used it for image backups before. I couldn't figure it out as easily as you did. I admit I was used to using MiniTool and not MR.... and did this BEFORE I posted my opinion to the user.
    Your 2nd question you wanted me to try and resize my 450mg recovery partition on my HD using minitool in 10 sec's!!! Which I was in no way going to try, and I most likely could have, but would have taken me a lot longer than 10 sec's. Because of where it is on my partition, makes it difficult for me. Plus, it was pointless of me to try. I was just meaning by saying 10 sec's that MiniTool was faster to make changes than using MR at that time.

    In return, you said you asked me 2 questions then where are they ? Normally when you have a question for a person then you would PM them or you just post in some thread that has been resolved which very seldom people would look at. So please be fair.
    Both of them are in the Network and Sharing forum. 1st one is one that I started myself, which I closed, by saying it was solved, because I gave up trying to get answers. Title is "questions on my home network." but to be fair on that one, I only mentioned your name and did not send you any personal msg. Didn't really think of it. BUT on the same note, other people don't ask for your help, but you read their problems and then respond, without them asking for your help by name or personal msg.

    2nd question is in same forum, under the question by the OP of "workgroup in windows 10 not working" You were helping the OP of that thread, and that is where I finally got some answers that helped me with the problems I was having with my home network.

    Great. That means everything is clean and Macrium did the job.
    BTW, the error message that you had earlier was from Macrium software. It was a bug so they updated it to version: 6.1.879
    Run Macrium->Other Tasks->Check For Updates... then it should download the patch and update for you.

    Thanks very much. With your sincere help I have moved my Windows 10 from my old hard disk (instead of increasing the system reserved partition on that disk) to new bigger hard disk with Macrium and now my system reserved partition is of 2 GB size) and plenty of space for my other requirements.

    This is an easy answer, even thou you are nervous about using partition manager's Lots of us on here use MiniTool Partition manager.
    This is a Free app, you would need to download their ISO version 9.1 then burn it to your dvd. Also, like I always tell everyone, DO a Complete Image backup BEFORE making any changes to your partitions!!! Try not to use Windows backup either. Use a program called Macrium Reflect Also a free app and does a great job of making your backup image on another drive. Windows backup I would NEVER trust. MiniTool I have used many times, with no problems. Macrium Reflect is also one of the better free image backup apps around.
    Though I have been able to do with the Macrium what I wanted but I also tried using Mini Tool 9.1 free version for merging my partitions but free version is not having this option. So I downloaded Easeus Partition Manager free which merged my partitions

    Ok sam glad you found a way that you liked!! That's really all that matters. I have used MiniTool 9.1 to merge my partitions thou, and it worked fine. Free version. I always use MiniTool from my bootable dvd thou. I never used it from my desktop, even thou lots of others do. Again, glad you fixed your partitions. :)

    I said way back on this tread it would have taken me maybe 10 sec's with MiniTool. Guess I was just a tad off......but the OP seems to be nervous about using MiniTool. :)
    I use it all the time. I do not have a system reserve partition.
