Windows 7: Restore an OS split image w/ Macrium

06 Jan 2014   #11

Never mind, did the logical thing and mused through my motherboard manual, and it was F8. I've restored to my 21st Dec. image now, it was fairly straight forward. I selected the first 00-00 image, then it asked for the second one, then when I began restoring it asked for the first 00-00 image again. Took over a couple of hours and hopefuly everything's good. Now onto the BSOD subforum to check how my computer had a stroke in the first place!
Thank you very much for your help!

You are welcome. Good to hear that you are back on safe territory. I have 2 suggestions:

1. Next time allocate anough space in the folder/partition to where you send the image.

2. Put your user data into a seperate partition. Then the system image goes a lot faster for imaging and restore. The data partition you can also image or you can sync the data with a sync program which is very fast.

It worked fine though, why would I need to do that?

Unsure how to do that. I thought that's what I was doing in the first place.

On the partition/disk where you store your images you should have at least space for 3 or 4 images in case you want to go back further than to the last image. They are also handy to retrieve old files that you have long deleted. For that reason I always keep 10 former images.

I can tell you how to do that. But first tell me how much data (in mega or giga Bytes) you have in Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music.

I don't have the ideal space for more than a single image. My media is worth 11.2 GB.

In your first post you talked about a 500GB partition. What is the story of that.

Else, get an external drive (between 500GB and 1TB) to do this properly.

The 500GB Caviar Blue is my dedicated game recording drive. My hard drive setup doesn't make sense, next system upgrade I'll ideally have an SSD boot and games drive (~300GB since that's all the space I use), get another Caviar Black and setup a mirror for recording, my Caviar Blue and my Seagate for backups/miscellaneous.
