    Please state your disk imaging/backup tool preference


    In my short time here, I have noted many members seem to like Macrium Reflect, but I know there are other tools out there for disk imaging and backup. I currently use the disk image creator available in Control Panel -> System and Security -> Backup and Restore, but I understand the changes to Windows 10 keep coming, and want to investigate options for the future if this 'native' tool disappears. I also use SyncBackSE v5.20 for my data backups (I am old and cheap, and it still works...)

    Please share your preferences, advice and wisdom! and be nice... *Smile

    :)

    Can't safely remove external disk

    In reference to the steps of your suggestions:

    • The issue is specific to the particular disk and it started after I've used the disk to save the System image backup (created with the Control Panel > File History tool).
    • I didn't disable any windows Service. I'm just wondering if there is any to disable.
    • Safe boot with networking, or clean boot doesn't resolve the issue.

    Thank you.
