    Rename Macrium Image File?


    I was recently trying out Macrium Free 7.2 and a couple of questions came up.

    I created a disk image and left the settings at defaults. There was the part of the process where you direct the file to the destination folder, and this is where there was a warning to NOT change the file name of the image.
    Macrium assigns a random alpha numeric string as a file name that is not descriptive at all. I like to name my image files with what is being backed up and the date. I assumed Macrium would append the date to the file name but it didn't.

    Does it matter if I were to change the file name during the imaging setup to my preference? Does this cause any complaints for the program in future backups or restore? My preferred format is like: "Sys,C,RE,D, 20-03-07" .

    Also: in Acronis I can change the file name manually in Windows Explorer and they still work with TI. Keep in mind I only do full backups, not differential or incremental. Does Macrium tolerate this as well?

    :)

    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.

    Why .ICO files blurry when you convert from an image?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below on how to change a picture to.ico format and check if this helps. Follow the steps below to do the same:

    • Select the image\picture you want to convert into .ico.
    • Now resize the image to 32x32 using Paint or Photo Gallery.
    • Save the file and just rename it to with an .ico extension and also select 24bit bitmap.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
