Windows 10: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect
Finnish but not finished
That is optional, a boot menu entry for Macrium which allows you to select either Windows or Macrium Recovery when you boot the PC.
You only get the Macrium boot menu option if you follow the optional steps told after Part Two Step 7. Check the yellow TIP box after that step, the one that begins like this:
I have a suggestion. You advise restoring from a Macrium Image from within Macrium Rescue Media rather than from within Windows itself (that is, not with the normal desktop showing). It seems to me that would have to be be done without access to your tut (which is online). I have therefore printed it out on paper and filed it away. I suggest you might like to consider putting a note about that at the end of Part 5 of your tut.
It is really very helpful to have well illustrated step-by-step tuts like this. Thanks for all your efforts.
MR update to 6.2 1544 today. No warning about making new rescue disk.
Hello Kari I have seacrched throughthe tutorisl but am obviously missing soemthing. Now whielusing 7 I used to be able to set the imaging to a weekly basis so that they built up into a list of images ad when getting full used to keep the very original one and then delete two or three of the following ones to make room for the ongoing process.
I cannot find thi option in the latest free macrium so has it been removed or is it referred to by soem othe heading??
Can I use this backup and restore method to move my windows to a different drive (my SSD kind of busted right now)? Will I be able to boot normally from the partition where I restore to? Also do I need to create a new partition before doing this and what should I format it to (NTFS, FAT32,...) Im kind of new with the whole install windows stuff.
Open Macrium. Choose Create an image of the partitions etc... and make your choices in the following windows. At the end press finish.
Virtual Disk Service error when creating WinPE Rescue Media
When first creating the WinPE Rescue Media on a 16gb USB stick I got an error about the partition (error code 5) so I followed the instruction from the Macrium Knowledge Base to prepare the USB stick. When I was typing the format command in the elevated prompt window my hand slipped and I accidentally hit Enter before the command was completely typed which caused the whole process to freeze and the only option I had was to close the window (I could not even type Exit) and start over.
When I got to the end and after typing in the format command and hitting enter I received a message that there was a "Virtual Disk Service error: a concurrent second call being made on an object before that first is completed." (screenshot attached)
How do I now fix this error, prepare the usb stick and create the Rescue Media without getting another partition error?
Would it be better to use Rufus to create this if that is an option?

Is this what you were doing?

Have you tried rebooting the machine and then inserting the flash drive again?
hi, after installed macrium program, in the macri folder here...which program do I need to create image file of HDD
A couple of days ago Macrium was working just fine but then when it started it's daily backup of my system drive (incremental) it failed pretty well straight away, with this message:
Starting Image - Friday, January 20, 2017...
I threw MACRIUM into the title because I knew it would get Caledon Ken's attention as he keeps recommending it.
My problem with any kind of backups is that when you do so, you are copying all existing errors, bugs and other problems that exist,...
I've configured Reflect to automatically run full and differential backups to two drives as shown in the enclosed Reflect status report.
The report says the last " full system backup to usb hdd" was run on 14/11/16 and was successful....
I noticed today that my daily Reflect backups had failed for the past three days, all with the same log file errors.
The Reflect help file has an entry for VSS Error: 0x8004231f - Failed to Create Volume Snapshot.
I started to research that,...
Trying to restore an image on to a RAID 0 SSD from stand alone version.
After loading the RAID driver Macrium SEES all the HDD's and can select images etc.
However when TARGET destination is chosen No HDD's are seen. !!!
