seeprime August 29, 2015 at 6:39 pm # Macrium Reflect is a great program. The MBR is always backed up in every image file. After the iso file is created download Rufus and use it to create a bootable USB flash drive. Edit: If you can boot into Windows Macrium will let you restore the image without the need for the bootable recovery media. https://www.eightforums.com/performance-maintenance/34320-macrium-reflect-free-does-mbr-always-get-backed-up.html

I feel that I've TRIED EVERYTHING to solve that problem (spending MANY days in total, over the long years, attempting to solve it, to no avail: the windows clone would ALWAYS I have 4 partitions: System, C drive, HP recovery, and unnamed mystery partition (13GB). An awesome function and they provide the converter in the "Other things," menu.

I will just backup the C drive and system, or even the whole HD. That is the optimal destination. For a drive that is failing this is the way to go. Correct, Macrium allows you to create a disk image from within windows.

I never leave feedback as I think most of it is fake most of the time. It would be great thing if drive a could be copied to drive b while it was running.

I removed the USB, shut down the laptop, put USB in, turned on the laptop and again, there was no boot into recovery. In this case you'll need both operating systems and the partition(s) involved in the boot process. I'm pretty disciplined about maintaining clones and I automatically back up my data and select configuration files in close to real time, as well as periodically to an external drive, so I love the Pro, but the glued together thing is a problem.I don't think anyone has mentioned another very good clone/image system, HDClone for Germany.

Is this possible? I have performed the cloning operation on a single computer with drive A running as the primary OS, and drive B as the destination drive.All I had to do then after Unless Computer B is hardware-identical to Computer A (and maybe not even then) what you are suggesting won't work, because the Windows Activation service looks for significant hardware changes to see Then reboot and log in a couple of times to make sure Windows processes the changes.Also by the way, the impermanence and less-than-rock-solid predictability of drive-letter assignments in Windows 7 is

Hello SleepyDude! check over here I had to take the computer to a tech. If I used an encryption feature, I rather doubt I would ever have any accessible information because . . . You can back up that partition (alone or along with other partitions on the drive).

Would the BCD in Win7 be preserved and function as always, in this instance? I just need to get some -RW discs. 23. How about imagining a mounted Windows hard drive, from Linux, to a different mounted hard drive? his comment is here Thank you.Regards, Harris Reply A different Martin January 18, 2017 at 8:12 am # This is just a shot in the dark, but try physically disconnecting or cutting the power to

This is especially important if the destination is larger than the source. PM me or a moderator to reactivate.• Please post your final results, good or bad. And yes I did use the Windows PE 3.1.

However, if you just need to recover your system to an earlier date then restoring the MSR partition isn't necessary, you just need to restore drive C.

If you still can't get it smaller then you will need a third party partition manager to do the job. I'm logged in as local Admin and wondering why this would happen.

I'd love to be able to do that from Linux and also to be able to restore a Windows drive image from Linux, instead of making drive clones. Also, Macrium runs three or four (I forget how many it was) services in the background all the time.
