    What backup media to store Macrium Reflect images-file-folder backups


    Hey Everyone,I am stuck on what type and size of hard drive that I should use and store my images on and backup my personal data. I am trying to choose between either a desktop external HDD, portable external HDD or internal drive that connects in an enclosure that I would connect via USB port. I am also trying to decide which one will perform the best for making images or even backing up my personal data.I am new at this game of imaging and trying to digest everything about it. I do own a purchased copy of Macrium. Any information I forgot to share please don't hesitate to ask for clarification.

    My system internal drive is 1tb in size and currently at 40gb usage This will increase more as I work with my PC. The size I was thinking about was a 2tb, is that overkill? I think it was at 160gb at one point I believe before I did my clean install a few days ago.

    My other older MyBook that I have has 2tb with 1tb of my personal data that I will also be either using the Macrium imaging option or using the Macrium File and Folder backup option. So, what would you choose imaging or backup file folder option for personal data? Currently at the moment I am using a program called Goodsync set to on file change to sync to another same drive, but I am looking for a better backup strategy for my personal data.

    Here are a few choices I've been thinking about. Which ones would you choose and that would perform the best for image, file-folder backups & cloning? Should I buy multiple of these drives to store multiple backups?

    Thank you all for your help and assistance.

    :)

    Macrium Reflect Backup Failures


    Macrium offers the option of verifying your images when they're created, if you check that box when creating your instruction file.

    Otherwise, you could open Macrium, go to the restore tab, navigate to your most recent image and run Verify on it, to be sure it's good.

    No, you must find the exact path that's listed in the RKILL log. Do you have show hidden files and folders enabled?

    It is, and I can't tell from the Tweaking forum if he ever included reparse/junction fixes, but the guys at Bleeping Computer would know.

    Windows 10 backup

    You haven't described what steps you are performing to backup or what program you are using.

    Windows 10 has two backup utilities: File History and System Image.

    I myself prefer third-party software for backup. Macrium Reflect makes my image backup in approx. 6 minutes and my file-and-folder backup in approx. 4 minutes.
