  1. Macrium Reflect restore over corrupt drive?


    This morning I had a computer crash . Somehow it got stuck on an upgrade . I Booted into system restore and tried to restore to earlier date. Error message came up indicating I had drive issues so I continued with the offer to scan and repair the drive. After drive was "fixed" by windows , I could not proceed with the restore by clicking on next. Its like I am getting an loop of disc errors. I went back to the restore dialog and then chose a restore point .Computer started Restoration but then had an error that indicated it could not restore due to some problem with candy crush ! I then shut down the computer . Restarted it and went thru the HP Diagnostics and everything looked OK so HP diagnostics let me restore the computer ...but this time I had to enter my password to my msoft account and the restoration went smoothly.

    My question is :

    If I had failed to restore the computer via windows restore process due to disc errors , Could I use a very recent image of my disk made with Macrium Reflect v6 ? Would Macrium work despite windows detection of disk errors?

    :)

    Macrium Reflect restore over corrupt drive?

    Have you made the Macrium Reflect Rescue USB bootable stick?
    Where are the image backups stored? Should be on a separate drive. Can't be on same drive as OS is installed.

    Updated:
    If the disk has errors than you will have to repair the disk before be able to use Macrium Reflect. Sorry.

    A Macrium restore and a disk error are two different stories at different levels. If you have disk errors, you have to fix those first - e.g. with a chkdsk. Macrium cannot help you in that.
     
  6. Macrium Rescue USB Bootable stick made prior to crash . The image is on a desktop USB drive so not in same drive as OS.

    Good question, make another usb disk putting this program on your stick. This can do repairs like chkdsk to your C drive.

    This is a lot different, think you might be surprised!!! Has many features that you can use to make repairs. *Smile
    I would make this now, and boot it up, so you can see all the features. This program is also made by one of our members Kyhi

  12. I am trying to make the bootable drive using rufus but not sure of the selections to choose:
    a)Which of the 3 partition scheme to choose
    b) File System Fat 32? If fat32 then what cluster size.

    Tks

    Macrium Reflect restore over corrupt drive?

    No need to run chkdsk at all. You just need to install image. Macrium formats drive for you.

    If you get issues, then do this :-

    If you boot from the Macrium usb, in the bottom lefthand corner is a command prompt.

    Click on it and run these command:

    Warning - this will wipe hdd completely. If you have other data partitions, back them up with Macrium first.

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk n (n=number of hdd, normally zero)

    clean (warning wipes everything on hdd)

    create partition primary

    select partition 1

    format fs=ntfs quick

    assign

    exit

    exit

    Now restore your Macrium image.

    Actually you can make that disk without using rufus, just mount the ISO by right clicking from your hard drive, and then copy the files over to your USB drive. Make sure USB stick is fat32 and partition is set to active.
    But....if you want to use Rufus I took a screen shot for you..... Do NOT check mark "create a bootable disk" in my pic it is check marked. As the boot files are already their in the ISO Best way is option of just mounting the iso and copying to the usb stick.

  15. Dont understand about making the thumb drive partition active. Isnt this the normal mode?

    Re Rufus :
    Should I use the Partition scheme for BIOS and UEFI or the GTP scheme ? Clicking on my C drive shows the partitions are GTP . Safer to use the default scheme?
