    Can USB 2 be used for Macrium Reflect backups?


    Hi:

    I'm hoping to learn how to work the Macrium Reflect backup/restore process.

    Until now, I've relied exclusively on System Restore, but..So please bear with me

    One preliminary question:

    I have only USB 2 functionality, not USB 3. Can I use a USB 2 drive to back up and restore in the Macrium Reflect free version.

    I seem to recall seeing USB 3..But forgot precisely where I've seen that

    Thanks:
    Eli
    Windows 10 Version 1803

    :)

    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 Free - USB can't start to install


    1. Install Macrium Refelct Free on the tablet.
    2. Create the Macrium Reflect rescue USB flash drive using the option to do so when you run the installed Macrium Reflect program. This requires a small USB flash drive by itself - 2 GB for this is fine.
    3. Perform a backup image of the tablet onto a second USB flash drive. This flash drive will have to be 32 GB or larger to hold the image.

    When you need to restore:

    1. Boot the tablet from the small Macrium Reflect rescue USB flash drive, it will boot directly into Macrium Reflect Free.
    2. Replace the small Macrium Reflect rescue USB flash drive with the flash drive that contains the backup image. Just do this with the tablet on and Macrium Reflect running on it.
    3. Restore the image on the USB flash drive to the tablet's "hard drive".

    The tablet doesn't really have a hard drive. It has 32 GB of memory that simulates a hard drive.

    You are confusing the rescue program with the backup image. The rescue program is what you boot the tablet into in order that you can restore the backup image that is stored separately from the rescue program.
