    No problem, any time. Can you even buy a single CD - just curious. Here they usually come in packs of 25 or 50.
    We have retail and wholesale but it comes cheaper when bought wholesale.

    Great tutorial, Imaging software is a little difficult to understand the first time using them, after that they are very similar and generally easy.

    This will help a lot of people doing this for the first time, like the video tut....

    Added a warning


    Please note that I added a warning to this tutorial ( Imaging with free Macrium ) because it is a trap that one can easily fall into. And since it is a relatively recent phenomenon, the mistake is easy to make.

    Hi whs,

    Good note about not marking the o/s partition active during restore - if you have the 100 mb system partition.

    It won't matter if you tick replace the mbr code - windows will boot fine - it is standard code that works with any o/s.

    Unfortunately that is not my experience. I did click the MBR replacement box (but kept C as primary, not active) and got "NTDLR missing". Once I checked not to replace the MBR, things worked.

    first part is done i burned recovery CD without any problems, and store it safely way.. second part to where i want to create the image (backup) i have two drives C and D.. my C has of course the operating system but also has 100MB of Active Reserved? and then 465GB of Primary.

    is there away to delete that system reserved and part the other partition active..
    one more thing, can i say what files within the partition i want to back up or is the whole thing.. also does the program get recognized by windows 7 as a backup utility so it makes those open action message center go away.

    if i can delete that system reserved, as i believe, do i have to check it off when using this program to make a backup


    thanks in advance for the help :)
