    Simple Macrium Reflect question - I think


    I can't get logged onto the Macrium support forum so hopefully somebody here can help me with this annoying but trivial question.

    I have created shortcuts for my various backup routines but when I click on one of these it does run but nothing appears on the desktop to indicate this. The only way I can see it doing something is to right click on the icon in the system try which then has options for Show/Hide. I'd like the default to be Show.

    Not the end of the world but........

    Thanks

    :)

    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.

    Loading an image (Macrium Reflect) of my C drive into a brand-new pc to retain browser settings, etc.

    A few days ago I was told that to accomplish my goal I needed to use Macrium Reflect to take an image of my C drive, and then transfer the image to the new pc. I've done that, and would like to know if it's a simple matter of just transferring it from
    my Seagate external HD to the new pc, so my browser settings, etc. will be as they are now...or are there any other steps I need to take in the process?

    Need Serious Help: How To Record Video of What is Done on my PC?


    I suggest the following simple steps:

    1. Set the autosave options in MS Office to a low value say 5 minutes.
    2. Setup file history to autosave frequently - the shortest period is 5 mins
    3. Install Macrium Reflect Free and configure it to do a daily incremental system backup

    You should be well covered if you do the above to protect your key files.
