Windows 7: Will Not Load My User Profile

Thanks for getting back & clearing up the duplicate AV issue. The System Specs I was referring to are the ones showing in your "My System Specs" at the lower LH edge of your thread replies, so you may need to update those.

Glad to hear you are finding Macrium easy to use & as time goes by you will become more proficient & confident with using & trusting it

If your current Diana2 User profile is working the way it should & you are happy with it, you should be able to delete the old Diana one. However, it might be safer to leave it until you get your external hard drive & have the system image back up process fully under control & you feel confident that it will work if needed. Then you could delete it after making a fresh image, so if anything goes wrong you can reload the image.

OK, I will wait on deleting the old User Profile until I get an external drive, and I updated my AV specs.

One thing I'm not sure about...now that I have the system image on a DVD that I created with Macrium, do I still need an external drive? As I keep making those images, couldn't I write over the one I just did on the DVD? Also, it used very little space on the DVD...if I could figure it out, maybe I could keep adding to that DVD?

Thanks for updating your System Specs.

I don't know how big your Windows 7 Operating System is but it should definitely be bigger than what can fit on one DVD. My Windows OS is just over 41gb & I always image the whole hard drive, as I don't have it partitioned & it is a 250gb SSD. To image 41gb using Macrium to an external USB 3 hard dive takes just over 5 minutes.

From what you have described it seems that you may only be imaging part of your OS drive. Could you post a screen shot of Disc Management please, so we can see how your OS disc is set up.

This tutorial explains how to do that. At the end of the tutorial there is a link to show you how to upload the screen shot.

OK, I posted a screenshot of my Disk Management and also one of the Rescue DVD I made. I should have known it couldn't be that easy!

Don't despair. Once you get familiar with Macrium & doing regular images, you will see how easy it it is.

This Macrium website might help you with learning to use it. The items listed are like chapters so you can click on them & read through to help you understand the process.

Looking at your Disc Management screen shot, you should image the whole of the Hard Drive, not parts of it. The reason for that is, if you suffer a major OS disaster or a Hard Drive failure, you will still have your Dell factory Windows 7 recovery software.

Ranger4, correct me if I'm wrong, but in comparing NEM2's screenshots it looks like she only created a rescue environment?

By the way; Nice link, saved.

Yes Anak, I think you are correct, in that she only created the rescue disc, which is a start & a very important part. Once she gets a full system image, she will be able to use the rescue disc to verify the image, which will be a test to see if everything is working properly.

I was lucky to find that Macrium website, which hopefully covers Macrium v6. I have the paid for version of Macrium v5, but I was not sure if v6 has exactly the same layout & I did not want to add any confusion at this stage.

I just noticed something from NEM2's second screenshot, but I wonder; Did NEM2 save it with that name or did Macrium do it automatically?

And I believe your okay with that being v6. This snip is from your link:

Well observed Anak. I had a look at my Macrium rescue disc & yes Macrium does name it automatically as mine is named Rescue as well & I did not name it. So that's something well worth keeping in mind.

It also confirms your suspicion that NEM only created the rescue disc.

Hello everyone...just wanted to let you know that I finally did it...I backed up my computer on an external hard drive! It wasn't easy...I kept getting messages that the backup had failed, with both Macrium and the Windows System backup. I had to run a chkdsk command, which took many hours, but must have worked. I was able to create a System Image with Macrium. So if you think it's OK, I will mark this thread as solved....and say thank you very much once again!
