    Possible Macrium Issue?


    Hello all,

    FYI, I am now getting an Event ID 513 log every time I create a System Image backup using Macrium Reflect Free; however, it doesn't seem to affect the restoral because everything seems just fine after same. Since I have never noticed these logs when running Win 8.0, I'm wondering if this is a brand new issue with 8.1? So, here is my Macrium Free version information and a copy of the Event ID 513 error log. It would be nice to know if anyone else is seeing this log on 8.1 or can confirm it is not present after an 8.0 backup.

    I'm sure you checked for an updated version or a version compatible with 8.1. I'm sure you know that if there's not a compatible version from Macrium out yet...that the devs for Macrium are working on it. All in do time...but the waiting sucks.

    Thanks for the heads up, Macrium users should find this helpful or at least put them in the loop.

    I use Acronis 2014 for my needs.

    Apparently Macrium is already aware of this issue and they are referencing it when using their latest version on 8.1:

    Event 513 errors in Windows 8.1

    So it appears that this latest version is already compatible with 8.1 and I believe they are hinting that this might just be an 8.1 issue that is not directly related to their software. So, anyone that is waiting for an 8.1 update may not get it for quite some time.

    I bought Macrium & get no messages like that.

    Maybe it is a Free Edition thing ?

    A lot of free versions of programs have popups that the paid versions do not.

    Hello,

    Could using Macrium Reflect Free while this Event 513 issue is not yet solved, cause problems to the operating system?
    Do you suggest to wait until a new version is released, before doing my backups, or should I not worry?

    Thanks.

    In any case Macrium Reflect Free should work well all the same, even if the Event 513 error appears?
    Macrium Reflect Free should work well under Windows 8.1?

When you do a disk image in Macruim Reflect, do you have to put the image back on the original hard drive? I ask because it says saving partition. If you install a new hard drive will it make that partition on the new drive? It's confusing to me.
