    Macrium Reflect PE BOOT wont browse some disks on backup


    I run a daily backup with Macrium Reflect Free for home use and I thought I would just test the browse image from a USB stick and it wont browse some of my disks. I cant even mount them in the PE environments. I have two physical disks with 8 partitions and 3 of them wont mount from the backup image on the 2nd physical disk. Anyway to get in touch with Macrium or should I try the PE 4 option instead of PE5?

    Linux rescue CD cant even see the image file. I can mount them in normal windows mode but I am worried that I might not be able to restore them from a PE USB stick as I cant mount them. Any suggestions?

    If you can see the images with the PE USB stick, then you should be able to restore. But I have no idea why they don't mount.

    I tested the restore but after the restore I got a scan disk message "Scanning and repairing your disks", files seem to be ok and seems to have restored successfully but still wont mount, just get a blank explorer window, other disks in the image mount ok. Macrium dont make it easy for you to tell them about bugs.
