I thought gold didn't tarnish.
Yes it was something like that. Was a Gigabyte MB IIRC.
It's possible there is a BIOS setting to prevent this. I had this issue before and I'm certain there was a BIOS setting for each attached SATA drive to prevent this.
Or suggest that if they wont take some responsibility for their own PC's you wont either. :)
OK, I restored an older Macrium image (to a 500GB drive not the SSHD), created a BootIt NG boot item and booted into the restored system. Started another Macrium backup which got by the point at...
OK, I tried to restore the last Macrium image before I had this problem. I wanted to restore it to another partition on my Seagate SSHD. However, it seems that Macrium will only restore to the drive...
I haven't had a chance to try Clints suggestion. I've been too busy. I see there was a Macrium update. I installed and tried the backup again. Still failed for same reason.
I was hoping someone...
That sounds like a great product. It's certainly less expensive that what I'm using.
You could give FileHippo's update checker a try.
Before I restore an older Macrium image to check this further I have to ask a question.
First some background. I use Bootit NG as Partition manager and Boot manager. My plan is to create a new...
If you can get enough volume (GB's) for free. I have about 71 GB backed up online. less than $10.00/month.
Are you completely opposed to paying for offsite backup?
That's a big step, but may do it next weekend. Will set up another partition and recover to it and set it up as a separate boot item in BING.
Another thing I did today was to install Easus and do...
BTW I did a clean boot and tried. Same result.
Sorry Dick but that ain't gonna happen.
I'm old school. I like to know what caused the problem. Need to know the root cause.
I've uninstalled Macrium 5.2.6465 and installed 5.2.6437. Still...
see next post. Sorry about double post.
Downloaded Perfect Disk Trial. Ran defrag and boot defrag.
Macrium still gives the same error.
There was lots of space on the drive when I first tried this. I even defragged the drive and tried again. No luck. Based on when the error occurs I'm fairly certain that it's referring to the source...
On some Windows Secrets Pages I'm getting the following warning.
This is happening on some other sites as well so I suspect a Noscript issue, but you never know.
There may be a bios option to turn of the hot swap capability for some SATA connections. There was on my system. When I first set it up my c drive showed up as removable.
I tried $bitmap. Will go try $MFT.
Just tried contig -v -s $mft here is the result.
Macrium still wont work. contig says bitmap not fragmented.
BTW thanks for the link on Clean Boot.
That's the problem Dick. I'm using the free version. No support.
What's really weird about this is the recommendation to run windows defrag, which doesn't defrag the bitmap.
I even tried the...
Not exactly sure what you mean by 'clean boot'.
I used Windows defrag and JKDefrag. It was an old version. There is a new version I think I'll try that and then try Macrium again.
Had an error in Macrium Backup as seen in attached image. Have run Macrium many times successfully. Only differences are a new update to Macrium and using a Seagate SSHD (hybrid drive).
Actually I said Product not program.
