    Testing Macrim Reflect


    Many experts here have recommended using Macrim as a preferred
    backup program.

    So now that I've had it for a while and my win 10 is stable, how does
    one "test" the backup image without doing it for real?

    Appreciate any advice and tips.

    :)

    SurfacePro 4 Stuck in loop after Win10 update

    got it!

    • got it to the UEFI screen
    • disabled secure boot and TPM
    • connected the USB with the image files (Macrim Reflex)
    • select EXIT and RESTART
    • NOTE: Here's where I got lucky
      • when the SURFACE logo comes up with the RED unlocked banner at the top; I hit the power button again.
    It went to the USB drive, I selected FIX BOOT ERRORS and that solved the issue

    Hosted network suddenly not supported in Windows 10

    Hello,

    I've already tested the solutios suggested there before but didn't work. But this lead me to reflect about the solution.

    Finally, I downloaded a driver for windows 8.1 released in 2014 and...... IT WORKS.

    Bye,

    remove current hdd and apply backup to a spare hdd and boot from it..

    otherwise you have to do it for real..

    Your system specs show that you are using the Windows 10 Home edition, which means that you cannot use Hyper-V virtualization (for free Hyper-V, Pro, Education or Enterprise edition is required).

    You can install free VirtualBox or VMware Player, create a new virtual machine, boot it with Macrium boot disk and restore the image to test it works.

    that process comes with a whole new set of user instructions...

    ... and yet it is the best and easiest way to test the integrity of a system image.

    Or do you mean that replacing hard disk, which assumes that a user has a spare to use, is so easy it does not need any additional instructions?

    I'm an IT developer and not a systems guy, but I think I
    can work with this.

    I'm going to work through installing the VirtualBox from Oracle.
    I found a descent install video from here. This guy basically
    goes into great detail and it looks good even though hes using
    windows 7.

    How To Use VirtualBox - Complete Step by Step Tutorial - YouTube

    Now my only question so far is, in the video it prompts to install an operating system
    on one step.

    If I'm only using this as backup, to test my Macrim Image what do I do on this step?

    Select the OS you will use on that virtual machine, Windows 10 in this case. When setup then asks the OS install media, use Macrium Rescue boot disk or ISO image.

    Will the Macrium Rescue Boot disk just appear as a selection, or do I
    need to create it first?

    When I installed Macrim I only created the DVD rescue disk.
    So, not sure if I need to do something *else* before I get to this step in Macrim?

    '
    That's the one you should use. You can also create an ISO rescue media later on by selecting ISO instead of CD/DVD:

    Definitely use Verify and you can mount and explore the image file just to check there were no basic errors in creating the file.
