Click on the LOG tab in macrium. Does it crash on same sector all the time? Post as much information as you can. I expected a read-error not a write-error.

I was purely following these instructions from a tutorial as they seemed a bit more user friendly for me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTl3NbyO6cM

After resetting the pc the disk is on the managment again however as mentioned before only the system reserved is there the rest is unallocated so it seems to have unformat it. It was originally as a E: but now no.

The reflect program also doesn't show it on the list so now I'm not entirely sure what that would mean.

In Elevated Command Prompt do:
Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
this checks the file structure ... any errors? All repaired? (eventueally run it twice to prove all is fine).

Then:
Code:
chkdsk/r  c:
Is does the same 3 steps. But also step 4 (check disk space in use by files) and 5 (disk space not in use by files [so free space]).
any errors?

It takes hours, but take your time. Post results

My friend had recommended this to me this morning to my c: drive actually, but i felt it wasn't worth mentioning due to nothing coming up as an error.

Read this Imaging with free Macrium . Try to burn the winpe ISO and boot from it. So run macrium outside win7. Same error? At same percentage?

Computer - Right click c: - properties - tools - error checking - check now.
then proceeded to reset the computer for the scan to begin

Did it do 5 phases? did you really scan for bad sectors? No errors?

Yeah it did the 5 steps took a while, the disk space in use took the longest stuck on 11% for a while but the rest went smoothly and yeah unfrotunally no errors (I say unfortunately because it still leaves a worry that it's doing this)
