    Backup VMFS image with Macrium Reflect


    Has anyone done this? The question could be strung out to backing up "any" unsupported file system. So the partition will appear as unpartioned space instead of unsupported file system which is what set of my alarm bells. I am thinking to back up using the full sector backup option not the intelligent backup and hoping that would effectively clone it to an image even though reflect doesnt recognise the filesystem. Is my line of thought correct? Googling only yielded people doing clones rather than image backups.

    :)

    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.

    Macrium Reflect Backup Failures


    Macrium offers the option of verifying your images when they're created, if you check that box when creating your instruction file.

    Otherwise, you could open Macrium, go to the restore tab, navigate to your most recent image and run Verify on it, to be sure it's good.

    No, you must find the exact path that's listed in the RKILL log. Do you have show hidden files and folders enabled?

    It is, and I can't tell from the Tweaking forum if he ever included reparse/junction fixes, but the guys at Bleeping Computer would know.
