  1. Using Macrium Reflect to transfer data between two machines


    I need help with using Macrium Reflect (v7.2.5107.0) to transfer data on XPS13 laptop running W7 to the newly formatted and empty partition DATA (D:) on 2nd (and newer) XPS13 laptop running W10. Ive made backup image of W10 system partitions, using MR to a folder on an external backup hard drive (screenshot attached):

    Ive already backed up the W7 DATA (D:) partition with MR to the same external backup drive.
    When I run MR on W10, I can browse and see this saved backup folder (and image)please see attached screenshot:

    How do I proceed to choose the destination location of the restore as the DATA (D:)? MR doesnt allow me to specifically specify the DATA (D:) partition of Destination (local disk) - please see screenshot:

    Theres a helpful tip on top of the screen shown in the above screenshot [Drag Partitions to the Destination Disk or click Copy selected partitions]. Im hesitant to proceed as I suspect that this action may actually overwrite the system partitions (particularly the three at the end of the disk) and not necessary overwrite the intended empty DATA (DUsing Macrium Reflect to transfer data between two machines :) partition.


    My system specs have been updated: PC 1 is the W7 machine and 2nd PC is the W10 machine. I've allotted time to do this transfer this morning so really hope there are longtime MR users are online now to help me with the next crucial steps & be able to use Windows 10 more regularly.

    :)

    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?
     
  4. Using Macrium Reflect to transfer data between two machines

    Computer stuck in LIMBO, please help me (deleted all permissions).

    I would do this:

    1. Download & install the free version of Macrium Reflect, using a different PC.
    2. Create a bootable Macrium Reflect Rescue disk.
    3. Boot the problem PC with this disk.
    4. Create an image of your disk. Park the image on some backup disk.
    5. Check on a different machine if the data contained in the image disk is readable.
    6. Re-install Windows.
    7. Restore your data from the image you created in Step 4.

    In this way you're guaranteed not to lose any data.
