    Macrium Backup File Size


    Hello,To backup my windows system I use Macrium reflect (free edition), every 4 - 5 days. One is a full image backup and 4 - 5 days later a differential backup and so on.The system uses 31.8 to 32.2 GB on the disk (no restore point).Usually a full image backup is ~20.6 GB and a differential is 2.8 - 3.0 GB.The last full backup image (four days ago) was 21.3 GB, no updates or new programs installed.
    Today made a differential backup, its size 9.7 GB !(Deleted it and made another, same size 9.7 GB).Macrium reflect not changed, and nothing changed in the system. (Right now 32.0 GB)Macrium reflect version is 7.2.4744 and system is win 10 1809 x64.Any explanations ?Answers will be appreciatedThanks
    System = win 10 1809 x64, 17763.1075

    :)

    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.

    I suggest the following simple steps:

    1. Set the autosave options in MS Office to a low value say 5 minutes.
    2. Setup file history to autosave frequently - the shortest period is 5 mins
    3. Install Macrium Reflect Free and configure it to do a daily incremental system backup

    You should be well covered if you do the above to protect your key files.
