There's a lot of stuff on my F partition. There's 125GB free of 496GB. So, yeah, there's a lot of stuff on there. My C has less stuff but it's only 100GB. I made a system image of C but then I remembered that F is apart of the system as well so maybe I should put them both into the same image just in case my OS ever fails me.

Also, I'm embarrassed to say this but I don't know what MBR is.

Okay. I'm making a backup of my documents now but the bar seems to be stuck. It moved a little bit but for about 10-15 minutes it hasn't moved at all.

Edit: I think it just moved. Maybe backing up folders takes longer then making a system image.

How would I restore my documents using the image I'm making now?

Okay. Where would I find this?

Okay. Post #24 explains it greatly! This backup is taking forever though. How long does it usually take? I know it depends upon the size. I'm back up a good bit so I suppose that's why.

Here's my Disk Management:



Edit: It seems as though the paid version of Macrium allows users to back up files and folders instead of just partitions. If you bought it do you know this to be true?

1. Your F disk is somewhat strange indeed in so far as it mentions a "Page File". You better check what this is all about.
2. The backup time is of course variable. The fastest I ever did was less than 4 minutes for appr. 20GB - but that was from an SSD to an internal HDD which is optimal. Which of your partitions do you image?

You will "see" the virtual volume in Computer, but it will disappear with the next reboot.
I actually didn't realize this but I didn't fully understand this until I tried it. I thought you were only talking about my regular PC's backups but you were referring to Macrium. And maybe even the computer backups as well. In any case, I understand this part fully now.

(Also, instead of re-booting you could just right-click and click "Unmount Macrium Image."

I have another question though:

My brother told me that my PC's OS is installed both on partition C and partition F. What should I do then? Should I make a system image in Macrium that includes both C and F?

I'm doing my documents, pictures, music and some other stuff in my Users that I cannot remember at this moment. It was bigger then 20GB though.

What do you mean F looks strange? What should I do? What does "Page File" mean?

WHS - Should I make a system image of both my C and F together? Since my brother told me that the OS was installed on both partitions?

Also, what's this about the "Page File"? I have no idea what that means...

Is it a bad thing?!

Well, this is probably what I should do. But I need my question answered about the partitioned OS. I still have no idea what I should do with that.

Also, if I schedule to have Macrium make a new image every time I start the computer will it make a brand new image or will it overwrite the previous image?

(Also, I have two posts above.)

What are you actually doing and with what program. Those are folders. I thought you made an image with Macrium - but that only works with a partitons.
As for F, have a look whether there is indeed a page file (you may to unhide it). Or follow the instructions on the picture.

I'm sorry for the confusion!! When I mentioned those folders and such I was speaking about my own computer's Backup and Restore file recovery. That's what Rich suggested I believe.

I canceled that though. I am going to make an image of both C and F with Macrium. I am doing that now. The reason I'm doing C and F together is because they're both tied to the OS.

And I will do as you said right now with the above instructions. Thank you very much for taking the time to create that screenshot for me!

Here's the information. I have no idea how to correctly answer that page file question as I have no idea what it is or what it does. I never heard of it until today.

It definitely looks at though there's a page file though.

Please tell me. Is this a bad thing?!
I'm sweating bullets here worrying if it's a bad thing.
