Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I can only reply as a newbie. I seem to remember being told that either linux or virtual box could see a flash drive but not both at the same time. But i don't know how it gets removed from Linux so that virtual box can see it. VirtualBox has nothing to do with this Tutorial...Macrium sees Physical...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I used my HP Elitebook 2570p and it was successful. Exactly as your tutorial described. I was so happy. I'm glad you had some success...I don't understand why you can't get the same result on your Dell. Does your External HDD mount and open on the Dell ? Sounds like Dell doesn't like the External H...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I followed Bob's instructions to the letter and, yes, Macrium Windows PE did boot up. However, it did not see my external hard drive that I wanted the image saved to. Macrium sees every HDD connected to your System...Internal and External. Step one says...Plug in your External HDD and create a Fold...

Re: Mint 18.3 cinnamon to Zorin OS 12.3

I also tried Zorin some time ago...apart form being buggy...they claimed it looked like Windoze 7...Really? don't think they've seen Win 7. The worst thing for me was the Menu...very confusing and hard to find applications...unlike Mint which is very user friendly and leaves Zorin for Dead in every ...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

Thanks for this. I already use MR on Win10 so already have the full up to date product (had to use it the other day as the most recent update trashed my disk s/w wise). I suppose the only thing is you can't set up a schedule. I also assume that creating an image on an NTFS volume is irrelevant beca...

You need to uninstall the old version...then install the new one...good idea to backup any VMs you have first.

clonezilla works fine to take and restore image.
The Idea of this Tutorial is to show people an easy way to create a System Image...especially for those coming from Windoze. After all it's a WinPE but works great in Linux...it's all about freedom of choice...use whatever is best for you. :D

How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

When I switched to Linux I wanted to create a System Image as I had done in Windoze...I soon discovered I could use Macrium's Rescue Disk to do just that. You need to download Macrium Reflect Free software from here... http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/macrium_reflect_free_edition.html or here...

Re: Need a ISO based Back Up System

I think I know why some users say it doesn't work...this is Windoze software and as we all know Windoze can't read Linux files or Partitions. When you Boot to the Macrium Rescue Disk you will see a Partition called...Unformatted Logical and will have an amount of Ram...this is your Swap Partition an...
