    In case you need to redo this (I've found that the columns disappear sometimes), @Try3 showed me a batch file that I run each time I need to redo these columns. Just put the following into a text file with a .bat extension & you can run it whenever you need.

    HTML Code:
    @Echo Off & Cls (Net session >nul 2>&1)||(PowerShell start """%~0""" -verb RunAs & Exit /B)cd "C:\Program Files\Macrium\Reflect" regsvr32 RContextMenu.dllregsvr32 RShellEx.dll

    - Not guilty. It was Farvatten who posted the dll re-registration code
    - You appear to have had a formatting problem when posting that code block as it's all strung out on a single line.

    I agree that the way to re-register the dlls is to run these commands in an elevated command prompt or elevated batch file
    Code:
    CD "c:\program files\macrium\reflect"
    regsvr32 RContextMenu.dll
    regsvr32 RShellEx.dll
    because that's what it says in the Macrium Reflect KnowledgeBase
    Windows Explorer shell extensions missing - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase

    The first part of the code phrab posted is to force elevation if you have not started the batch file as Admin yourself.
    - There are several approaches to this and one way is generally as good as any other.
    - The simplest method is to create a shortcut to the batch file and to set its Advanced property to run as Admin. Then you have to remember to use that shortcut.
    - A "self-elevating" batch file can just be run without needing to set up an elevated shortcut to it.
    - I prefer laying things out in a batch file so they can be more readily debugged but it's hardly the end of the world for this case
    - This is what I'd use ResetMacriumDlls.bat - and as a zip file ResetMacriumDlls.zip
    - My batch file also includes checking the path for any ampersands because they normally crash Admin batch files
    - I've left in a final line Pause at end during testing so you can check that the dll re-registration completed correctly

    Thanks both of you for chipping in with ways to make it pretty easy for most to use the Fix.

    Window 10 (Defender) doesn't like it much when you download a .bat file though , might be better to zip it for download to avoid the Win10 blocking action.

    KB,

    I've added it zipped as well but I'm having no problems downloading the bat itself [I downloaded it in Firefox & in IE].

    Thank you for the correction, Denis. However, you were the one who helped me create the batch file for this in the thread located here, Syntax for Batch file &/or powershell script to run multiple commands, about 5 months before that thread. And that thread gave me excellent source of information.

    I use Defender and currently Edge Chromium, and both blocked the download until I said to keep it, then Smart Filter (?) blocked it again when I tried to open the .bat (edit) to see your Code. Maybe all to do with Smart Filter ? but aren't sure ?

    Thanks again,

    KB,

    I know nothing about Edge so it might be part of its security [I have Defender so it's not that].
    - IE just brings up a neat little popup without interfering at all.Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect-ie-warning.png
    - Firefox didn't show any notification. I hadn't noticed that before; it's a little strange that it issued no warning at all.

    Smart filter will step in if you try to run, for example, a batch file you have not unblocked - right-click on it, select Properties then unset the blocked checkbox.
    - You can drop the batch file into a Notepad window to read through it even before unblocking it. I always do this.

    Hi all,
    seeing this tutorial i decided to try macrium reflect and i saw it is very interesting program.

    So , i had a disk which was collapsing fast and i decided to clone it because was disk D: and had my data in it.

    Unfortunately, macrium was stopping with an error which -after i google it- had to do with bad sectors in the disk. The instructions said to do a chkdsk /r
    So i did and i had to wait several hours for it to complete . It found 5 errors and corrected them. Then i tried macrium again. It started and after a while the same error. As i said the disk was collapsing fats so it seems new bad sectors arised meanwhile.

    I thought that would be a never ending and time consuming procedure -to do chkdsk again and again- so i decided to use another backup program to clone the disk. I do not name it cause i am not here to advertise another program
    That was a success. Of course i presume that some of my files maybe not be working in the new disk but i saved the vast majority of 1.3 Terra files.

    I think this is a major flaw for macrium not being able to clone the disk if there are problems with it. In my case at least.

    Apart of this (which is not minor) macrium is a really interesting backup program in deed.

    Regards.

    Don't clone it, just try with full disk backup. Cloning is literary bit by bit even when they are in bad block/sector or empty of data and that can't be written to new disk. Backup doesn't use empty data cells.
    chkdsk /r produces folders like check.000 with data in them practically useless so you should delete them.
