Windows 7: Shutdown Screen Hanging

07 Jan 2016   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

If your Pc is running well at the moment then may I suggest that you backup your C drive using Macrium Reflect or similar and do this on say a weekly basis then if you have a similar or any other problem in the future you can always restore from the backup and be up and running within minutes. If you automatically back up your data files to an external hard drive this is an added bonus. If you restore your C drive with a backup file a week or so old your won't even loose any data files.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thanks for that Mitchell65. I use Acronis True Image 2014 to make a clone of my C drive about once a fortnight. I do this outside of Windows as Acronis allows one to create a bootable media disc to do the cloning process. After using Acronis for about 5 years or so I can honestly say it works. Good software. I also use C drive only for programs and keep all my data on another hard drive.

Have heard of Macrium Reflect and often in a positive way. Can you tell me does it do cloning? Sounds like you use it mainly for its backup features. Is it fully effective when the backup needs to be restored? Have you had any negatives with it? Alway good to chat with someone who has actually used the software they are talking about...Gary
