    Macrium Reflect question


    I've been told I should be doing backups more often. My last one was 1.5 years ago and was a full disk image backup. I heard that a differential backup could be done that would simply update my original backup. So now I did that after looking up directions on how to do it and following them to the letter. But I'm not sure of the result. My original backup was about 76GB in size. Now I did a differential backup and now have a separate file that's 29GB in size. I was under the impression that the original would simply be changed, so I'm surprised to have a separate file. If I needed to use my backup to restore my computer in the event of a crash, which of these 2 would I use? Here's a screenshot of what's on my external drive (click it 3 times to see full size):

    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 Boot Question

    Macrium Boot Question

    I use Windows 10 and a Macrium recovery program. My BIOS is set where the optical disk for CDs and DVDs are not set to recognize a CD/DVD disc as the first priority to boot from.

    What are the steps I should take to make my Macrium Rescue Disk as being first to boot from?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Although the screenshots in the tutorial are from v6.2, they are still valid for v7.2. See Part Five:

    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect


    And if you have a spare drive you could swap in to temporarily replace the original, then you could run the test without needing to be quite so brave *Wink

    If not, and you're not feeling brave enough yet, then instead of a Restore boot from the rescue media and run the Verify instead.
