  1. Macrium and Optane


    I was wondering if anyone could shed light on this. The best operating procedure I could find for using Macrium reflect Free to image a disk that is accelerated (cached) by an Intel Optane module is to dis-able the Optane acceleration before making an image.
    This is from the Intel forums, by other users, as far as I can see there is no official response from Intel or Macrium for this situation.
    Now the question is, if you use the Macrium scheduled back-up does this mean you have to dis-able Optane just before the back-up kicks in, every couple of hours/days etc that you have scheduled?
    The reason I ask is that Intel states that if an Intel Optane module fails, the drive being accelerated is useless, i.e you can not ever use it again due to the pairing service.
    So if you make a disk image with Optane enabled, then the Optane module fails you cannot apply that disk image to a new hard disk because it wont work? Because the pairing files would not be synced?
    So does this mean that all forms of scheduled backup on an Optane accelerated disk are pointless?
    The Optane system apparently save config info to a min 5mb unallocated section of the paired hard disk, Macrium will not include that space in an image will it?
    Does the Optane module physically move certain boot/system files to its cache and write new environmental paths to point to itself?
    Sorry for such a long question but it really is confounding me.

  2. Intel Optane Memory


    Are there any issues creating and restoring Macrium Reflect systems images on a system with Intel Optane memory? My understanding is that Intel Optane memory remembers how you use the system. I was wondering how Macrium Reflect would restore that information.

    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.
