Windows 7: macrium reflect corrupted files

macrium reflect corrupted files

What does macrium reflect do with corrupted files when you take an image?
I have some rellocated sectors so I must have some corrupted files I think but when I take an image the verification process is OK.

Macrium's default setting is to take only the used space of the partition for the image, so since windows will not use those sectors marked as bad it will not take that part of the drive but windows should not be sticking anything there anyways since it knows its bad space. You can set Macrium to take the full partition then the image will be a carbon copy of all the sectors it can read and your image will be the size of the capacity of the partition itself.

Hope this answers your question.

You can verify in the Free Version. When you find the last screen with the Finish button , you will see at the right bottom of the window an Advanced Options link. Click it and one of the options will be Auto Verify Image.

Macrium Reflect creating multiple images, not updating files
My hard drive crashed yesterday, so I tried restoring some of my files on another computer.
