    Am just using Macrium reflect Your first point re not possibly using the entire HDD all I can say is that all the partition are checked before I try to create the image.

    I will do another complete image and then check it on Macrium.
    I am sorry to be such a pain in this. Thanks
    If you still have the existing image on the hard drive, just explore that - you should see three partitions in it.

    4 if GPT, unless you don't count MSR as a partition.

    Please read NavyLCDR post and use Kyhi's Recovery Tools which he posted a link too. Put this program on a usb flash drive and boot it up. Then follow NavyLCDR instructions please.

    Even if he isn't using Kyhi's recovery, he can still look at the image with Macrium Reflect and see if it has all the partitions on it from the hard drive, or only the one Windows partition that got restored to the SSD.

    He showed a screen shot earlier, and it showed all the partitions, what he did report was that he could not use "Explore" because it was greyed out. If I remember correctly

    Plus Kyhi's Recovery app is a better choice than just Macrium Reflect, as it has more options for OP to use.

    It could be an image. It depends upon what is in the image file that was created. Are you possibly confusing an image with a clone?

    An image takes the contents of the hard drive or SSD and writes all of it into one file. Sort of like a zip file except an image goes to the next level and includes partitions, not just folders and files.

    A clone will take the contents of one drive, partitions and all, and write those contents to another drive.

    Restoring a image is more than just copying the image file - it is extracting the contents of the image file to a hard drive or SSD.

    And when you restore the image you can select to restore only one partition from it, or the entire hard drive that was included, or any combinations of partitions from it.

    Still looks like you are NOT restoring the exact image to your SSD, as it only show your C partition. If you made a Complete Image of your OS drive from your old hard drive, then restored that image to your new SSD it would show all 4 partitions. Instead all I see in one partition.

    Well, it looks good so far if that only represents up through NavyLCDR's Step 2. So far, we can't tell what's in the image unless OP goes to restore tab and selects the image (if there is one) on the SSD.

    In that 1st image his C drive on old drive is 697.87GB his new SSD drive is only 465.76GB so I would think in order for the image to be copied on to his new SSD that the C drive image needs to be shrunk DOWN to fit on the new SSD. The C drive alone is taking up all the space on the new SSD
