Windows 7: Macrium Reflect...Burn image and then changing disk partition

Macrium Reflect...Burn image and then changing disk partition

I've just created an image of the files from my C: drive, which are on a 1Tb drive. What I'd now like to do is shrink the volume down, into two drives. Do I need to recreate the image, as I've changed it from the original when Reflect was run? If I don't, will a restore get rid of the secondary drive / partition?

An image restore made with MR will basically recreate the partition from which the backup was originally made.

IF you shrink the original partition, you would need to do another image backup.

MR doesn't provide an option to resize the partition as part of the restore.

Yes it does if you use the WinPE recovery disk.

I'm no tech head but I can tell you I started using the free mini tool partition wizard. Does a nice job and simple. Does this while your logged in to windows or other drives it finds on the network. Thanks to posters here that gave me the link to it.
It's done a very nice job.
