    Macirum Reflect storage question


    I've never used Macrium, but after a self induced panic, and an apparent forthcoming Windows update I am way overdue backing things up. I have been trying to read all the posts about Macrium. I am currently reading one thread that's ~49 pages long.

    I'll download that latest Macrium version 7, but right now I have a question about storage.
    It seems like the best way is to store a backup is on a USB drive rather then dedicate an entire hard drive ?
    If the USB is the way to go what memory size should I be looking to purchase.
    My current set up is an SSD with my OS, and installed programs. My photos, and other documents are on another regular spinner drive. At present my C drive properties shows 72.1 GB used.

    As to my self induced panic you may get a laugh out of it.
    My system although I know it's old still "to me" loads programs even the browser too slowly, but once loaded operates fine. So in an effort to help myself after reading on this forum about turning on a diagnostic mode I did just that. Rebooted then went into my panic. I could not use any tools no internet access no sound etc. I could move about the system, but could not do much more. I said to myself "now you've done it McGinty", and other not so much nice language. It was getting late, and I was tired so I backed away, and resumed trying the next day. I could hear the forum saying you should have been backing up, but I was too late I had done the deed. Then I tried repeating what I had done invoking this diagnostic mode, and saw the menu choices. That's when I realized that once in the diagnostic mode you need to option back out of it, and reboot. Nice way to lose a few pounds of weight without exercising !

    :)

    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.
