    How to test macrium backup


    I am somehow not understanding how to do this.

    I have Macrium Free and I created a backup on DVD and an image of the C:/ drive on an external WD drive. All appears good.

    Macrium says test the backup to ensure it works. So I connect the ext HD and put the DVD in the drive.

    With my dell, I go to Settings / Recovery / Advanced Startup Options (or something like that). It says click this to boot into a DVD or USB or other options. I do and the pc goes to a screen and I click the one with a pic of DVD and USB. It says select a device and then lists Onboard NIC (IPV4) and Onboard Device NIC (IPV6), I click either and PC restarts and boots into windows as normal.

    Today I went into the BIOS via F2 at startup and, again, my only options for Boot Option Priorities are

    Boot Option #1 Windows Boot Manager
    Boot Option #2 Onboard NIC IPV4
    Boot Option #3 Onboard NIC IPV6

    Where's the boot into DVD?

    Am I missing something? My ol' gray mare (and onboard brain) ain't what she used to be so I suspect I am. How do I test the Macrium backup and image? Or how do I boot into a DVD as a test on this Dell?

    Many thanks! Robby

    :)

    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.

    What if macrium reflect backup fail


    If a drive has important files on it and there is a Macrium backup image that has never been tested what are the steps to perform partition recovery if the drive is no longer bootable? (Windows recovery can not find the drive)
    And how could you test the Macrium backup image?
