    Macrium Free - New user


    Just started using Macrium Reflect Free. I'm stepping through the excellent user guide but would appreciate advice on a basic point about scheduling please.

    I've scheduled the first Full for 08:00 tomorrow morning, repeated weekly. Can I schedule the first Differential for say 08:05 without causing a problem? Or must I make it much later, say 10:00, to allow time for the Full to finish? At the moment I'm guessing the duration, based on my very first manual Full run last night, about 50 mins for 100 GB. That would mean all the subsequent six brief Differentials would not start until 10:00 as well, later than I'd like.

    Also, with that plan, what would be sensible numbers to specify in the Retention Rules? Currently I've left Full at its default of 26 weeks, and Differential at 7 days, with Free space threshold set to 20 GB for this 2 TB external USB drive.

    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.

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.
