    Backup Aborted-Macrium unable to back up disk


    After working fine for several months, Macrium Reflect Free is unable to back up my 4tb data drive. I have run disk check from the command line, run Western Digital Lifeguard diagnostics, Crucial diagnostics, still no luck. No problems with windows or third party software reading and writing to the drive, only Macrium has the problem. Plenty of free space on the target drive. The backup runs to about 98% complete, then aborts and shows an error pop-up. Any ideas?

    The error message from the log file reads:

    Backup aborted! - Unable to read
    from disk - Error Code 23 - Data error (cyclic redundancy
    check).

    Windows 10 Pro
    Intel Core i5
    16 GB Ram
    225 GB Crucial SSD System drive
    4 TB Western Digital Black Data drive
    8 TB Western Digital MyBook USB Back-up drive
    On Board intel Graphics

    Yes, with Macrium. Here's what it displayed:

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.

    Unaddressed error in Macrium Reflect Free causing backup aborted


    I have the latest version of Macrium Reflect Free and have used it successfully create Full and Differential backups but i removed the external usb hdd to do a backup on another pc recently and when the scheduled backup tried to run it had no destination drive to use so I reattached the drive, deleted the schedules and started again but now i get this message just trying to run the first Full backup:

    Backup aborted! - Unable to read from disk - Error Code 21 - The device is not ready.

    This error message is not listed anywhere in the Reflect forum nor does it come up with a search of the forums.

    Can anybody help me out with this? Here is the summary:
