    Macrium Reflect Eject Drive Problem


    I just upgraded to the latest version of Macrium Reflect Home Edition v7.3 5289.

    I mounted a Macrium image file on an external drive (H) to view the virtual drive in the image (I) which works fine. However on right clicking I there is no option to eject the virtual drive as expected (see below). Is this a bug or something else?

    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.

  4. Macrium Reflect Eject Drive Problem

    Problems ejecting a portable hard drive.

    i have a solution for the problem with ejecting external hard drives this has worked for me on my windows 10 computer.

    when typing use lower case letters and leave out the brackets ( ).

    i have use capital letters in parts so it is easier for all people to understand.

    i will do it in steps.

    step 1. try and eject the external hard drive. when the message pops up saying (PROBLEM EJECTING USB MASS STORAGE) do not close it.

    step 2. in the search bar type (EVENT VIEWER)

    step 3. in (Event viewer) on the left side look for (Windows logs) then click (SYSTEM)

    step 4. in (SYSTEM) tab go across to (EVENT ID) look for (EVENT ID 225)
    there might be multiple (EVENT ID 225) in that case it will be the top one.

    when you click on it. underneath it there will be two options named (GENERAL and DETAILS) select general.

    it will tell you what has stopped the external hard drive from ejecting. it will have your device directory and in that it will say something like.

    (The application\device\ the name of your external hard drive\program files\ X86\ what ever program is causing to problem).

    step 5. when you have found out what program is causing the problem. open
    (TASK MANAGER) by holding the
    (ctrl+alt+delete)

    at the same time. then click
    (TASK MANAGER)

    step 6. in
    (TASK MANGER) go to the
    (PROCESSES TAB) scroll down until you get to
    (BACK GROUND PROCESSES) when there find the program name that was in
    (EVENT VIEWER) click on it and end task.

    step 6. close the
    (PROBLEM EJECTING USB MASS STORAGE)

    that popped up and now try ejecting the external hard drive again if the previous message doesnt pop up again you have fix the problem and the hard drive will eject properly.

    step 7. if the problem happens the next time you turn on your computer just remember the program that caused the problem and go to (TASK MANAGER) and end the same task as before. if the problem
    happens after then just repeat the step i have laid out and you will be able to find what other program could be the problem.

    if when you have tried these steps and you still have a problem chances are it could be a hardware problem with either the external hard drive or the computer its self.

    i hope this post will help people out to fix the problem.

    please comment if you need further assistance.

    thank you.

    thomas.
