Windows 7: Trying to Re Image my computer with problems

You mounted the image in Disk Mgmt to a lettered virtual partition? When I do this the mounted drives don't show in Paragon backup drives.

I don't know if this is the "fancy Paragon app" you're referring to which itself offers mounting, but I don't see it. Can you help me out?

Edit: OK the mounted drives just showed up in Paragon's P2V copy function so I added them to a MS Virtual Machine, correct? They are now available to image. Very cool.

In Disk Mgmt Action>Attach vhd - browse to it.

That's all.

How did you do it?

My VHD is "Q" - but in Macrium it does not show up.

It is the free B&R11 - Just mount the vhd in disk mgmt as described above.

Open Paragon B&R11 - the mounted vhd will be right there - see Disk Map- you may need to grab the top edge of the disk map and drag it up - it will be the last drive listed.

I think you boys might need to reinstall something - windows itself perhaps.

That will work - but you shouldn't need to do it.

Mounted vhd should show like any other drive.

I don't have a vm.

All my apps. see it , here's another couple

Greg,

If you can't see the iscsi disk in other apps, there is a fair chance it is being obscured by something else - one reason I avoid Acronis is the snapman has a habit of doing that kind of thing.

If you have a valid windows generated vhd you can restore it and resize using Macrium. See here
restoring saved image to smaller hard drive
I tried it some time ago as an "experiment" and it seemed to work fine. I was being a bit cautious in my response.

That's the thread I was recalling, Michael, when I first posted here..

See there, Si, my memory's not so bad after all. I remember most of what you teach me which is a lot.

Possibly another reason to uninstall Acronis when not needed for imaging, or use the boot disk only. It normally lasts only a few days before I toss it out again.

What could the prob with Macrium be?

I don't know why it isn't showing in whs macrium - something interfering, perhaps.
