    Macrium Reflect clone question


    Hi,
    I just cloned a 500gb disk to another disk of the same size using v7.2.4601. Clone finished fine, both disks boot ok, however the disk utilization is much higher on the source disk. 297gb(source) vs 64gb(target) - Wondering what did not get copied, or what is using up that disk space on the source? I did a Windows Explorer search for large files and did not find any suspects...

    :)

    Attempted cloning a WD 8TB usb hard drive to another WD 8TB usb hard drive using Macrium Reflect.

    Hi DennisCPA

    i don't know of a maximum size (nor can i find it mentioned), largest i have cloned is 4TB.

    when i last had a clone fail, whilst checking connections of the destination drive i put it in a different port and it worked (i didn't investigate further), suggestion, check destination drive connections or try a different port

    you may get a better solution if you ask in the Macrium reflect forums

  3. Cloning an external HDD

    Doing a clean Install while switching hard drive is always recommend due to the fact that the hardware configuration of each PC is different.

    What I suggest is to Clone the other data partitions except C:

    Use Macrium reflect a freeware for this.

    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.
