    Having trouble Cloning to a new HHD, Macrium failed clone error?


    Hey, I'm trying to upgrade from a 750Gb hard drive to a 500Gb Hybrid drive, and I'm running into a few difficulties. I'm using the free version of Macrium Reflect, every walk through I've read says to select the partition with the windows symbol, however I have two? Is this normal? I've been trying to clone both just in case. Shown below.

    Secondly, the first partition clones just fine, but my C: drive won't and I keep getting the below message.

    Any help would be muchly appreciated.

    Hi, Macrium helpfully marks all partitions related to Windows OS with a Windows symbol. On my UEFI SSD I now have 5 such (should be 4, but the upgrade seems to have added 1, curiously).

    Those are the partitions Macrium selects if you 'Backup Windows'. (System image).

    It looks like you have some sort of disk failure.

    Try
    a. checking your disk's SMART parameters (e.g. Crystal Diskinfo - free)
    b. checking your disk's surface - (e.g. Macrorit Diskscanner)
