    Windows Backup and Restore


    I created an image on a multiple partition hard drive and then had to do a repair install. I did the following:
    1. Deleted the image.
    2. Tried to create the image:
    a. Selected partition with no problem but would not go to next operation of selecting what to backup.
    3. Deleted partition and recreated it and had same problem as 2.a.
    4. Shared the partition, same problem.

    Where is Windows storing this info so it can be deleted? I tested the backup and restore and it works great except you can only create one image.

    :)

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.

    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.
