That's what I was hoping but doesn't seem to be the case , I will try it again. After I download it , it would not show anywhere on my computer , just keeps telling me it's a 32 bit and I have 64.

Maybe I am wrong and it does not install. Usually 32bit programs work well on 64bit systems but I never tried a 32bit Macrium.

You should probably follow this tutorial by WHS:

Imaging with free Macrium

It includes a 7 minute video right at the top that walks you through it.

Thanks , I managed to continue but I can't seem to find a drive that I can put the backup in because the message keeps saying it's already included.

Sounds to me like you are trying to save the image on a drive that is part of the image.

No can do. Verboten. Not possible.



If you have a C drive and want to make an image of the C drive, you MUST store that file on some other partition.

It's up to you to come up with the location.

If you have no such location, you may as well uninstall Macrium.

Question about Windows Recovery Images
I was wondering something. If I create a recovery image of my PC's current state, and move all of the image files to another hard disk, would I still be able to use that image to recover my PC or would it have to be on the disk that the image was created on. Thank You
