  3. Reusability of a Macrium Reflect Backup Definition File


    I think I understand the idea behind the Macrium Reflect Backup Definition File. It saves backup settings so you don’t need to re-enter them. What I don’t get is how it’s supposed to be used over time. Right now I create a new one every time I do a full backup and then use it to create subsequent differential backups. Is it possible to use one Backup Definition File to create all your backups if you always use the same settings? For me, the only difference would be the comments for each backup. I use the free version of Macrium Reflect 7.1.

    How Do I Re-create a Backup Definition in Macrium?

    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.
