    4 SSDs in the machine.. the primary Win 10 boot is designated as Samsung, PM981.
    Which is cloned to Samsung PM951 and can be selected as an alternative boot.
    Which is also cloned to the Samsung 860 EVO SATA M.2 SSD and can be selected as another alternative boot choice. I clone more or less without a schedule, when enough major changes have taken place. Sometimes twice per month and sometimes months go by without a clone. It's not incremental obviously but it dumps the entire 1TB - although it seems to me the very first time it takes 45 minutes and then 25 minutes so maybe Macrium does have some kind of incremental logic build-in.

    I worked with just 2 clones (1 primary and 1 clone) for years until an accident a few days ago wiped out the EFI partition on the clone *and* the source, I was down for days.

    The 4th drive, the 2.5" 860 SATA is just a data disk.

    Surprisingly, despite labeled as 1TB, they are not equal. Something about being managed by the system, PM981 and PM951 appear to be identical space-wise while 860 EVO M.2 and 860 2.5" unit are a bit less, strange. I am actually surprised a clone to 860 EVO M.2 worked at all.

    Question, what is that last partition in disk0? "Healthy (Primary Partition)"?

    :)

    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.

    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.
