Did you install free Macrium on your system.

Hi WHS, yes I have Macrium installed, do I need to do anything further with your iso I burned to CD?
Thanks again for your help.

I suggest you test the CD. I always use a little 2GB test partition with some random data which I image and restore to test whether the CD works. In your case it would also help you to understand how the recovery works. You don't want to start learning that when panic strikes.

And make a couple of images to 2 seperate disks. Learn from my mishap ==> A partition vanished

Hi WHS,
Yes the CD boots OK.
Going to attach an external USB connected drive an practice with the software.
I know what you mean about trying to learn in the midst of panic! Been there myself a time or two.
Will check back later to let you know or if I have anymore questiond.
Cheers!

Here is a video that my friend Keith made that shows you how the recovery procedure works. Maybe it helps.

Hi WHS,
was going to try your advice and test the CD and get familiar with the recovery process, but it seems that the Image backup for files & folders option is not available in the free version.
The CD does seem to boot ok, but I am hesitant to try a restore of an image when the system appears to be working great now that you all gave such good help getting it straightened out. Thanks to everyone here, for helping me fix all the earlier problems.

Cheers!

Hi Frogpond,
Your very welcome,
You can try ie11 or not it really isn't all that much of a big deal yet,
If Microsoft issues a ie12 I would go for ie11
It's best to stay one version back,
The latest version usually have more irritating bugs/ quirks... than previous versions
Come back anytime,
Cheers.

That is correct. You cannot backup individual files and folders with the free version. For a recovery test, you don't use your system partition. Make a small 1 or 2GB partition, populate it with some random data and test the imaging and recovery on that.

Hi WHS,
Thanks for your reply to my last post. Would really like to do the test. Just wondering which partition I should create the small 1-2 GB partition to do it. Sorry if I seem a little dense. Here is a screenshot of my hard drives and partitions as they exist now in Macrium. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!

Just shrink 2GB e.g. from Data (E) and create a new partition from the 2GB of unallocated space (all in Disk Management).

Then copy a few files into there (pictures are good). Then make an image of that 2GB partition. Delete a couple of the pics from the 2GB partition (after you imaged it) and restore the partition. If the pictures are back, you kmow it worked - and you have learned something.
