    Invisible "C:\Boot\Macrium" Folder


    This question was generated by a post on the Macrium Support Forum but I thought seeing how there are many more items in this "invisible" C:\boot menu item I'd post it here and possibly find the answer to my question as to why it doesn't show up unless I specifically do a search in Explorer for "boot." Link to the original Macrium Support Forum question is here:What/Where Is this: "C:\boot\macrium" Folder?

    Macrium Boot Question

    Macrium Boot Question

    I use Windows 10 and a Macrium recovery program. My BIOS is set where the optical disk for CDs and DVDs are not set to recognize a CD/DVD disc as the first priority to boot from.

    What are the steps I should take to make my Macrium Rescue Disk as being first to boot from?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    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.

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink Invisible "C:\Boot\Macrium" Folder ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.
