    Macrium defect - can't delete a backup


    Hi there

    I'm trying to move / copy some macrium backup files to different HDD's.

    Windows 1803 (current "Normal" windows build with latest Macrium update gives me following error


    Macrium defect - can't delete a backup [​IMG]


    Easy enough to delete and move using Linux live distro or KYHI disk - but this error shouldn't occur -- nothing wrong in wanting to move / re-arrange backup files !!!!

    First time I've ever had this error.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    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.

    Macrium Reflect image will not delete?


    I've been using the free version for a few years. I downloaded the paid home version's 30 day trial. Before running my daily, scheduled backup to an external drive, I ran a test image to a flash drive (T:\Macrium TEST Onedrive\BE1C13BDDEE1C020-00-00.mrbak). I tried to delete the image this morning and the OS wouldn't allow. I right clicked on properties and there was nothing interesting. I tried Unlocker delete. It couldn't delete but asked to do so on boot. I booted but the file was still there.

    Suggestion?

    Need Serious Help: How To Record Video of What is Done on my PC?


    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.
