    Which drives to select in Macrium Reflect to make image backup


    I am confused which drives you select in MR to make an image. I have an SSD and a data HDD. When opening MR it shows disk 1 with 4 drives. And disk 2 shows 2 drives. Hope this image comes through! If I want to do an image backup with MR which one of these no name, none, Win C, Win RE Tools, Data D, and Recovery E drives would I check?

    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 and SSD drive


    Here's an easy way to do it, With your SSD connected.

    1. If not already done. Create a backup image of your current Windows HD. From Macrium, click on "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows"
      NOTE: you could actually clone the disk, but create a backup then restore will allow Macrium to correctly align the cluster size and perform trimming on the new SSD.
    2. After step 1 is done, click on Restore tab, select the image from step 1 then click on Select different target disk, select the SSD as destination disk then click on Next->Finish. No need to use/boot from Rescue disk. It will be faster and Macrium will also perform trimming on the new SSD.
    3. Disconnect the HD and reboot. Windows should boot up with the new SSD.

    Which drives to select in Macrium Reflect to make image backup

    Macrium Reflect image question - dedicated drive?


    You then restore the latest backup image from the external drive, it will then re-boot, and you're back up and running. With everything exactly the way it was at the time the backup was done.

    Every step, with examples, is in the Tenforums tutorial I posted previously.
