    Win 8.1


    Question for you. On the Create a Backup tab my hard drive is broken down into 4 sections (see attached) (its not a partitioned drive). I have the option to deselect some of them. Would I need to image all 4 of sections?

    step one


    After opening Macrium Reflect 5.3 and checking for any updates, you should see a page similar to my attachment.
    Choose to 'image selected discs on this computer'. This is the SOURCE. I check all as nothing takes sup too much space + to be sure.

    [Also, I use a cd-rw disc to create the rescue disc as it changes often with updates. Create both Linux which you will use the most and easiest and also a disc for WinPE -if you have Win 8.1 choose 5.0.]

    Next you will click on destination or where you want to create the backup. First go to This PC in your pc and look in your external drive for the letter of the drive or book. Remember this drive letter then open the external drive destination and see if there is a folder there yet. . If there is no folder, just create it when you set up 'destination'. I usually include the date. I will send a pik of my destination when you are ready. Yours may vary a bit but will be about the same.
    I know it sounds sticky now but once you walk through it, it is ez.

    Ask when you are unsure before forging ahead and getting confused.

    basic uploader


    I tried the baric uploader to see if that would help.
    I may have to talk you through this if the piks don't work.

    Brink are you around to help, please.

    Hey Peter,

    You uploaded the image ok, but just forgot to click on the paperclip icon again and attach it afterwards.

    Brink, thanks a lot. I cannot believe I could not replicate what I have done so many times.
    We appreciate your help.
    I am having trouble with the paperclip idea although I know what you mean by it. I have never used t to create an image, only to open one.
    When you post with an attachment you should be able to see it shouldn't you?

    Only if you attach the uploaded image in the post, otherwise you wouldn't see it when posted.

    Win 8.1


    Peter, I was able to see the embedded screen shot in your first reply! I do have questions on what you wrote, so I'll break them out below.

    Also, I use a cd-rw disc to create the rescue disc as it changes often with updates.
    Do you create the rescue disc via Macrium? If so where do I find is this option in the applicaction?

    Create both Linux which you will use the most and easiest and also a disc for WinPE -if you have Win 8.1 choose 5.0
    I do not use a Linux OS so I'm confused why your're mentioning it; unless, of course, I'm misunderstanding this step. As for the WinPE; I do have Win 8.1. By "choose 5.0" do you mean create a WinPE 5.1 for Windows 8.1 as described here: WinPE for Windows 8.1: Windows PE 5.1

    Next you will click on destination or where you want to create the backup. First go to This PC in your pc and look in your external drive for the letter of the drive or book. Remember this drive letter then open the external drive destination and see if there is a folder there yet. . If there is no folder, just create it when you set up 'destination'. I usually include the date.
    Do you save off the backup to an external drive that will hold a copy of your internal drive (the 900+GB in your screen shot)? That's a big external drive.

    I will send a pik of my destination when you are ready. Yours may vary a bit but will be about the same.
    I know it sounds sticky now but once you walk through it, it is ez.

    Ask when you are unsure before forging ahead and getting confused.
    Sorry for all the questions. I want to be sure I understand this before I undertake it.

Refresh Windows 8
I have read the tutorial (Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image) . Would I not get the same result if I created a Disk and Partition Backup using a program like Acronis or Easeus? That way I hope to keep all my initial system, personal files and third party applications.
