Searching MR forum the only lead I got was Win VSS. (MR won't let free users register for forums)
VSS is autostart and running. I re-registered VSS componentsand that didn't work.
Any ideas or help?
Thanks,

Preferred Solution: Macrium Reflect error BEX64 (Win error?) on MR startup

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm having same problem, but this solution didn't work for me.

VSS is autostart and running.

I've been running Macrium Reflect (free) for months on this system with no problem, but seem to remember it updated a few days ago.

Any other ideas?

BTW, I notice this thread is marked 'solved' so should I open a new thread?

Hi all.
I tried to do a backup with Macrium reflect from within windows 7 and I get an error and it will not finish. So I tried to do this by booting with the Macrium recue CD, same thing. It only says CRC error. After that I used windows backup and got some better info:
“ Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\svexxxxxxxxxx.com\15.5\Failed\1CEE2F472DA531F\LogFiles\edb.log. ErrorData error (cyclic redundancy check). (0x80070017))”

I looked for that folder and found 15.5, but there was no file in it.
I am stuck. What can I do to get a backup that I can use?
Thanks
Sven

A:Macrium reflect & CRC Error

Welcome
The most common cause of a failure to back up is a failing hard drive. I would back up my stuff, NOW. I would then run a chkdsk, to fix errors and then hope that it works. Even if it does your drive may be failing, take appropriate action.
In step 4, chose correct errors
Disk Check
Then edit your first post, remove the email addy. If curious, we do not want the spambots reading it.

I am attempting to use Macrium Reflect to clone my harddrive running win 8. When it starts the clone, it immediately creates a vss shadow copy on the c drive. Later when it is actually copying the drive, it fails when trying to read the shadow copy.

Is there a way in Win 8 to change the location of the shadow copy to another drive not being cloned?
 

A:macrium reflect clone error

I use Acronis, and as far as I know, you cannot Clone your drive to the same drive. The whole purpose of Cloning the drive is to have a separate drive, either internal or external ready to go in the case of a HD failure. So, if your trying to Clone onto your same drive I would think this is the problem.

Make sure you make a system restore point now so you can at least get back to that if you try any upcoming suggestions...

Can you explain in more detail what you mean with a refresh of the Desktop? Why is that needed? Doesn't the trashcan property screen that you probably use to empty it, dissappear by itself after choosing to empty?

I know you did not have a full BSOD... but could you upload the info according to http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html anyway? It gives us all the info we need, including what drivers and software you use...

A:Macrium Reflect

1,2,3,4 are partitons from Windows UEFI installation. Apparently, you updated from Windows 8 -> 8.1 and the update created an extra partition 5. 6 is your recovery image from factory.

Macrium just shows you what you have on the HD. If you open Disk Management, you would see the same thing.

Hi.

I have a Belkin USB Network HUB F5L009, that I have set up on 2 computers.

I shall drive a 2TB SATA HDD for backup, and I use Macrium Reflect for it.

The backup works ok, nor problems.

I then would try a restore.

I booted on the PE CD disk, but now the issue came up.

The Belkin needs to be started up after boot, but this cannot be done with the
set up I use above.

Then the backup cannot be found from the restore.

How can I solve this ?

A:Macrium Reflect.

Sorry I didn't see this before ...

MR provides an option to download a utility to your PC, so that then you create the WinPE CD, it includes all the drivers from your PC on that disk. That ensures that when you boot from that CD, you will be able to access all the connected hardware. It's a utility named ReflectDC and it can be downloaded for free from the MR website.

Once installed, you will have to create and burn a new WinPE CD -- but then, it will have your drivers.

Hi. In addition to asking here I'd sign up on
support.macrium.com

They may have changed it so that only licensed users may sign up. But you still should be able to search there. I know there are tutorials for making bootable USB with the rescue disc and with WinPE. Since you want basic usage info most of your questions are likely already answered there. But there are many Macrium users here and I'm sure some will chime in.

When it gets to there select the image you want to browse and it will put up a small drop box where you can choose a drive letter,

which if you do nothing will be the next available letter. Then just click OK and Reflect will start/create a virtual drive and mount the image, and you can browse/copy/etc to your heart's content.

Yes you can. Easiest is to double click on the backup image, Macrium will then open/mount it in a virtual drive (will look just like your C drive, only with a different letter) and you can pick and choose what you want to copy from it there.

Has anyone else ever had issues with this program not finding the "start" point for the image restore? It says to use the last disc, but when I put it in, no image file shows up from within the program

I just had a complete crash on a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium (I had already checked it for spyware/viruses/etc with a computer expert). Luckily, I had imaged it earlier with Macrium Reflect (free edition - latest release). After I successfully restored the image (which was a problem in and of itself), I noticed that I'm missing files and folders. I know all about folder options and I can see all hidden files/folders. With important files missing (like every .dll in C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ or custom/personal folders), I find myself seriously wondering whether I should continue to use Macrium, since I use it on all my desktops and laptops. I've checked Macrium's forum, which you can only post to if you bought a paid version, and it seems no one over there has this problem. The only reason I would till use Macrium is because I can mount disk images and navigate via explorer. Is this problem only happening to me? Should I switch to Paragon Backup and Recovery (which narrowly outranked Macrium on Gizmo's Best Freeware website)?

Are you still able to access System restore If so are your Restore points Missing if Not could you Run System Restore to a Point before you did the Recover

Dell computer with Intel Celeron cpu, 2.0 GHz and 3.0 gb memory.

Prior to installing Windows 7 Pro I had Vista Home Premium (came preinstalled on the pc, and had not be partitioned). I had made the rescue disks was prepared to restore to factory conditions. I even had Macrium Reflect image.

Try as I might, after Vista became very unstable, I could not get factory conditions restored. Macrium image from an external hard drive took over 24 hrs to restore the image (which would not boot either).

Finally I decided to install Windows 7 Pro. That went very well and has been activated. I then partitioned the hard drive as shown below.



I have installed the latest version of the free Macrium and created a new restore disk (and checked it). I then made an image and placed that image on drive J. I am not going to put that image on an external HDD. BTW when I booted up from the restore disk Macrium does not see drive J, it sees it as drive F.

This my question: why did it take so long to restore the Macrium image (with vista) and can anyone give me an idea why after it was restored it did not actually work.

Can I reasonally expect Macrium to work since installing Win 7?

Thanks in advance

Which restore disc?

Linux or pe?

Dunno about the Linux disc , but the pe disc should show you the same drive letters you see when you are booted into windows.

Macrium is unique in doing that.

Quite useful for the average punter who only has one o/s - bit of a pain for everyone else.

I have installed Macrium Reflect Pro to take advantage of being able to backup not only drives (or partitions) but also Folders and Files.

When I created an image of my OS drive (C), with compression set to medium, the original size was 20.2gb and the compressed file was 7.23. The ratio is 35.8%. Does that seem fairly reasonable?

When using the Folder and File option shown below:



NOTE it say it "will compress to a virtual FAT32 drive". I am not sure exactly what this means and what I would get if I had to restore it. I would appreciate it if someone can enlighten me on this.

Before I made the image, I took ownership of the folder and set permissions to maximum. I also made sure that I was showing Hidden Files and Folders.





Note the folder size is 5.74 gb before compression and the compressed image is 2.70 mb. The compression was set to medium as before and the ratio of compression is .04%. This seems very unrealistic to me. I would have expected the ratio to be 35-50%.

I was wondering if anyone else using the pro version had sees this a typical.

Thank You.

A:Macrium Reflect Pro

Hi Huffman. It's early morning and my math. might be off but - going from 5.74gb to 2.70gb appears to be 47%.

Am I missing something.

Cheers

I would like to put another OS  on my laptop to dual boot, and have read that it would be a good idea to use macrium reflect to both create a rescue environment(that would allow me to boot into a PE environment which i understand as a stripped down version of the original OS in case I make changes while installing the new linuxOS that results in not being able to boot into windows) and to create a restore point/system image.  I have already created the rescue environment- put it on a 16GB stick drive- and have successfully tested being able to boot into the Rescue enviroment. Now, from what I read I should ALSO make restore point, but where do I put it? On another stick drive? How do I restore windows Using the rescue environment? Macrium says to search for your restore point in its Rescue Environment, but I dont know how to put an image there?  Please do not suggest using a different software, I would really like to learn how to use this.  Here's what I have read: https://blog.macrium.com/2016/11/08/techie-tuesday-macrium-rescue-environment/ I just do not know how to use it yet....Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Anyone familiar with Macrium Reflect?

You need to create a complete disk image to a USB external drive. Your image is copied to the external drive during the backup process. You can create a complete disk image inside of Windows or using the bootable USB flash drive. I suggest you purchase a 1TB or 2TB USB external drive to hold your images.
 
When you backup the disk make sure all partitions are checked. You do not want to backup a single partition on the disk but every partition.

There are other videos on youtube than show the process.

Hi,

I am running 32bit Windows XP. I'm trying to make a recovery disc using Macrium Reflect and it's asking me if I want to make a Linux based recovery CD or use a BartPE plug in. (It says XP works better with BartPE). Can I still use the Linux option? It doesn't require me to install anything.

Thank you.

Hi!

I've been using Macrium Reflect Free v5 for some time now and liked it a lot.

I will be getting a new computer which will probably have MBR and GPT partitioned disks.

Will I be able to, let's say, make a system image of a GPT SSD to a MBR HDD and then recoveer it from MBR HDD back to GPT SSD? Or any other combination really.

I've also read that the new v6 now has auto verify feature - that's great, I always did that manually in the past.

What is the SSD Trim feature (not included in the Free version) about? Is that only when imaging to (and restoring from) a SSD? So only concerning a backup SSD drive? Or is it about the OS SSD drive?

Also, I have a Macrium Boot Media CD for my Windows 7. Do I have to create a new one for the v6 now?

Anything else I should know?

Thank you!

I'd be very surprised if the destination disk being MBR would be a factor. VERY surprised.

However---I too am concerned about possible issues when making an image of a GPT disk, even if the destination disk was GPT.

I've been told that it's not a problem, but I have seen very little discussion about it on these forums. Maybe that's because it isn't a problem, but I'm still a bit anxious. You might find more detail at the Macrium forums.

Can't help with your other questions, but I need to look into them too. I'm trying to resist the urge to move to free version 6 when free version 5 is working perfectly.

Gday

I have been having trouble of late backing up my entire PC with Vista Ultimate, getting various errors ranging from catastrophic failure 0x8000ffff to I/O error 0x8007042D. I have tried everything from Chkdsk to erasing the shadow copies then restarting the whole process again.
Now I have heard of two good backup programmes Acronis and Macrium Reflect, both are free. However I don't mind putting my hand in my pocket and paying for the full version. (more so with Macriumm it offers a lot more for the paid version).
So I am after some opinions, which is better bang for the buck? which is easier to use etc. etc. etc.

A:Acronis or Macrium Reflect

I tried Acronis and Paragon Backup utilities (which recently gave a way a free FULL version online) both seemed a little more bloated Macrium and are at a cost.

Macrium is simple and easy to use. I truly love Macrium, but I use the free version. I too thought about paying for the full version, but from what I read and for my purposes, it doesn't serve me any point.

Macrium has SAVED me the nightmares of reinstalling Vista. If I have any problems and need to reinstall, I just used the recovery CD and replace the OS with my initial image of Vista which includes all updates, drivers up to SP2.

Secondly, I created a separate partition for User Date/Programs and created an image of those once I installed all my necessary programs and user files. These system images created on a monthly basis.

I think the paid version allows you to backup individual files and folders and also has something called "Integrated VBScript generator" which I can't answer whether its necessary or not.

Here's a great tutorial on how to use Macrium and the features the free version offers.

This morning I had to restore an image using Macrium. The image was only 5 days old.

I had made both the Linux and Pe rescue disks. The Linux disk did NOT work at all.
The PE rescue disk loaded and first it did not load 3 drivers, but I did a scan and it found the drivers and loaded them.

After a lot of nail biting I think I got it to restore. I then restarted the computer, but on Bootup, it said "BOOTMGR" missing. It told me to restart again, but the same message came up.

How do I get my "BOOTMGR" Back??

I recently decided that I had better create an image of my HD, so installed Macrium Reflect after reading positive reviews. Don't know why the reviews were so positive because as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't work. I tried creating an image, and the log says it was successful, but I wanted to verify, so use the Verify option, which runs slower than molasses in January. Final result: Errors on disk 4 -- despite the log saying everything was A-OK. I was also using DVD+R discs, so 7 of them are now coasters!

So, are there some FREE, RELIABLE, USER-FRIENDLY image programs out there?

Recently I started having trouble creating a system image on my Dell Win 7 Laptop. I get what appears to be a common error message about being unable to find some weird file. My C: drive is 1 T, and it is close to being full, i.e. only 90 GB Free. So I downloaded Macrium Reflect Free and find it to be very confusing. I tried looking at some online videos, but none of them seem to be using this newest version that I downloaded yesterday, or at least what the videos show is not the same as what I am seeing when I run the program. The terminology used by the program seems very strange. I did what I thought was the right thing and ended up, after 4 hours, with a single file named CBF9B2FF21709F7E-00-00.mrimg. How do I know if that is really an image file of my C: drive? Now when I open Reflect again, the "bar" under what I think is my C: Drive (labeled by Reflect as "3-OS (C") shows up as red, whereas the bars under the other things (Labeled by Reflect as "MBR Disk 1") is clear and the bar under the second block (Labeled bu Reflect as "2 - RECOVERY (Y") is blue. I don't even understand the labels on the 3 blocks, much less do I understand if a useful image file has been created. I have tried looking for online help, but I haven't found any site that explains all of this. I would appreciate any advice that anyone can give me about this.

I have the free edition.

The picture below shows my question :

A:Question about Macrium Reflect

I can only tell you what I do.

I have external storage (USB and network storage drives) which I backup my program installation files and data/pictures to once a week using freefilesynch, all the games I play are through steam , so I can get those back any time.

So the option I use is number 2 , so if anything goes wrong with the OS I can get most of it back.

It all depends where you are going to store the backups and if you have copies of your other stuff anywhere else.

Today I decided to put Macrium on the laptop I have recently gotten. When making the Rescue Disk, I had to download the Windows AIK file. I am not sure what it does but Macrium had the default as being on the C: drive, so that is where I put it. If my C: drive were wiped out and the WAIK file were gone, would that stop me from restoring? Should it be on some other drive? Thanks,

A:Macrium Reflect Question

No as the WAIK is only used to create the recuse disk. I have never bothered with it as the Linux based rescue disk has always worked for me ()by testing/booting from the disk after creating).
