    Macrum reflect free clone failed.


    Hi everyone.
    I've previously had no problems with Macron reflect either imaging or cloning my 2Tb HD, but these last few days I've had an error when cloning - broken pipe.
    The only thing different from last time I cloned is I had to use DISM to repair a problem, reinstalling the Windows 10 upgrade (to try & correct said problem didn't fix it) & the laptop crashed when I plugged the 2Tb HD in which I use for the clone. Of the three I suspect the external HD.
    I have run DISM again with no problems found, cleaned the external HD using diskpart, formatted it to gpt & tried a different USB port.
    I have attached a screenshot.
    Is there anything else to try? I only have a 1Tb spare HD which I assume wouldn't be large enough to use as a clone HD to test.

    TIA,

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro Create SYSTEM IMAGE fails: Backup failed as shadow copy on source volume got deleted.

    Try Macrium Reflect free as this is a much better system image/clone software.

    Windows 10 won't boot "Repairing disk errors this might take more than an hour to complete"

    Do you know of any drive cloning software that will let me clone a partition to another partition? I tired using both Macrium Reflect Free and Acronis True Image Western Digital Edition.

    Macrum reflect free clone failed.

    Have you tried using Restore Image instead of cloning ?? You could also try this from your bootable rescue disk also, if you haven't already.
    One more thing, make sure you verify the image your trying to restore 1st also.

    Thanks for your reply but am not restoring but creating a clone of my Win 10 pro to an external HD.
    I wonder if an undeletable folder is the cause, after I reinstalled Win 10 update I was left with a Windows.old folder, I used disk cleanup to delete that folder but although it cleaned some of the files/folders I was still left with two folders which say are in use, can't delete at all.
    I always verify the image when I create/run image backup.

    Ok my mistake, I never use the clone setting, only use "image this disk" option myself. Try that option.
    On those files you can't remove in your Windows.old folder, did you try booting into safe mode to remove them??that sometimes works better.

    Not yet as I'll have to read up on how to do safe mode in Win 10 but am thinking of using a program from Malwarebytes - FileAssasin to see if that works, if it doesn't then try safe mode.

    I want to make sure all avenues are covered should a problem with Windows occurs, if restoring an image doesn't work then I have a fail-safe backup of a clone with which I can just swap out the old HD & replace it with the clone HD. *Smile

    I usually get this error when restoring image from an external drive. But then I found out that if I attach the external drive (on USB 3.0 dock), directly to a SATA port, the problem goes away. Probably just a data communication problem between the destination and the source. (YMMV).

    Edit.
    I just came across an article saying that macrium should have full permission to access files. Maybe this is why plugging the hard drive directly to the host PC fix the broken pipe problem.

    Will look into that once I'm home, will let everyone know how things go.

  12. FYI FileAssassin has not been updated for many years (pre-Win10) and AFAIK is no longer being developed.
    So, I'm not necessarily suggesting that you not use it or that it would be harmful.

    I would just be aware of the product history (and probably lack of robust support).
    I might consider first the other options suggested.

    Cheers,

    Macrum reflect free clone failed.

    I managed to remove the folder but still had the same error message, ran chkdsk on both Windows drive & external drive & it found no problems.
    Today I tried running clone again & the error message is the same apart from the number is now 22.
    If no fix is found will just use drive for images.
