    Go to My PC, right click the drive pointed to, it's your WD drive.

    You will get a screen like this. Ignore all the other stuff, it's from my machine. Click "Format".

    You'll get a screen like this. Important....please read carefully and follow posted instructions.


    Can anyone help with info about WD Elements and Macrium? [​IMG]


    Leave the red part alone, accept what is there.

    Type whatever name you would like in the yellow box, anything. Don't make it too long. Just something that you will recognize at a glance.

    After you have clicked "Start", the last step on this one, you will be prompted to continue. Go ahead. It won't take long. Just moments.

    When done, the drive should appear in My PC, with the name you gave it, and as "D:" drive, and be totally empty.

    Post whatever screenshots you wish, My PC and Disk Management would be nice.


    Any questions? Ask before you start, please.

    @RonBin79

    Ron, good day.....

    I'd like to see the Backup Definition File that the Macrium folks created for you. Instead of a series of screenshots, it would be much, much easier if I had the definition file itself. That way, I can look at it using my Macrium software, and easily see the whole picture, and make some suggestions for a manual definition file you can use "on demand" in addition to the Scheduled definition you have. This contains no personal information at all, just a file with instructions for Macrium.

    If you are willing to post a copy of your current definition file, as created by the Macrium Support people, here are the instructions. Quite easy, and very similar to posting a picture or image.

    All the info you see on these screenshots is from my system, please ignore anything that does not pertain


    First, open (start) the Macrium software. At the very top, click on Backup Definition Files.


    Can anyone help with info about WD Elements and Macrium? [​IMG]


    There should be only 1 file listed, the one Macrium made. If there are more than one, choose the first one. They should all be in the same user folder as indicated to the right of the file name.

    Right click the file name. Click Open Containing Folder.


    Can anyone help with info about WD Elements and Macrium? [​IMG]


    Right click the appropriate file. If more than one file, hold the CTRL key on the bottom left of the keyboard, then press the letter A to select them all.

    Click Send to. Click Compressed (zipped) Folder.


    Can anyone help with info about WD Elements and Macrium? [​IMG]


    A "zip" folder will be created in the same folder as your definition file, likely right under it.

    This is the file I would like you to post. Attach it just like you would a screenshot. I can then make a copy and look at all the details on my system.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    No hurry with this, I know you are out today. When you have a chance.

    Thanks, TC...
