  1. OK, I did successful a test demonstrating in this instance, i.e. my case that Speedstep is the problem. I stress that, but in so saying it is likely to apply for others also. (yes, it's a disclaimer!) I proceeded as follows: FIrst, booted into BIOS (F2 in my case) and turned OFF Speedstep, and saved settings. Restarted the machine. I booted from the Macrium PE partition on my system drive (this is created from the Macrium Reflect application menu): Other Tasks > Add Recovery Boot Menu Option ... After this option is set the option to boot appears on a boot
  2. Hi, I don’t believe it’s a heat issue so much, the machine runs within thermal specs. the references I made towards throttling may be relevant, but aren't an issue generally. the use of Throttlestop and HWinfo64 cure it to all practical purposes. The cause of the throttling is the way that the Dell machines of this series (circa 2010) deal with different capacity power supplies, e-ports and thermal control. It's just plain buggy! A google search on the subject will find thousands trying to solve the problem. I use Throttlestop and HWinfo64 to alleviate that. HWinfo64 may seem odd t
  3. The backups are run on a schedule each day at about 5.00am. I did this for a long time before the SSD. the only time I've had a problem is with the SSD. There is of course all the oddness of Trim on an SSD, and I notice that Reflect gives the option of Trim or not to Trim on restore. I must admit I didn't try all the permutations . I just wanted to restore, not wear the damn thing out. It took about four attempts before I suceeded. You can mount the backups while in Win 10, find all the files you want and restore them en mass or individually without issue., the Boot and Rescue partitions
  4. Hello there. It was a standard disc image + a differential. i.e. i restored from the latest differential. I have done this lots of times before (but mostly to HDD). I tried restoring the partitions separately ( there were 3 on the disc ). but that didn't work either.... that is two of the partitions did restore, but they were small. they would be the boot and recovery partitions. the system partition seemed to be the one in which the freeze took place, but this obviously is the bulk of the size, the other two being < a Gig in total. The machine was on power throughout.
  5. Thankyou for that, I tried Macrium, but it asked for my serial and said it was not valid. I guessed that just for the Free version they don't allow forum access. I'll have a look at the Wilder's one. Cheers!
  6. Hello there, I was hoping that somebody may be familiar with this problem. It’s been a while since I have been on this forum, and since the last time my systems have changed considerably. My main machine is a Dell Latitude E6410 (i5-520M) laptop with the latest BIOS running 64bit Windows 10 (pro), with a Qumox (Maxmemory X100) 256GB SSD. There appear to be no special drivers for this disc. I am running Macrium Reflect (free edition 64bit v7.1.3317) as backup software. I use a weekly turnaround, full system disc image on a Sunday, differential every weekday
  7. Yes Mta, it's from many sad and bitter experiences over the years
  8. Just out of interest: There appears to be a known bug in earlier Linux Kernels that fail to pick up on some SATA interfaces Transcribed from photo mentioned in post #19 above as my machine attempts to attach one of the SATA drives: ata1.00:failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40) ata1.00:disabled ata1:exception Emask 0x10 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen t4 ata1:irq_stat 0x48000000, interface fatal error ata1:hard resetting link i.e. the system cannot attach the device This would explain some of the discrepencies described in the same post.
  9. I found a download. You have to go back as far as version Macrium Reflect 5.2.6526 http://filehippo.com/download_macrium_reflect/57471/ to get the actual installer [edit link corrected] . Later versions download a stub that downloads an installer, and points at the latest version even though it says version 5 by the looks of it. This version does enable the creation of Linux Based and the earlier Windows PE 3.1 quote from the Rescue Media Wizard: "Linux provides a compact and efficient rescue environment to restore all Windows operating systems. Note: This option enables you to re
  10. Thank you Hazelnut. He he, ok, perhaps I was a little hasty! That little lot should keep me from hibernating this winter
  11. Could the legend on the button have the words "You Cannot" added to it? We would probably all like that
  12. Hi Mta, I was just testing out the product. Everything I ran was from Windows. However I wanted to see what would happen in a simulated disaster recovery situation, as I suspected there might be some problems with my drivers from past experience. Also, it would more likely be quicker to run a backup from the Recovery Medium as the machine is doing nothing else, no multitasking as such, nothing else going on, and all files as they were at the time that the machine was shut down. The disc image produced would be as near perfect as it could be ... in theory (remember my little firefox problem
  13. Hello all and @Mta, I did an uncompressed backup of my Linux partition and in summary this was indeed quicker. Macrium Reported: I/O Performance: Read 545.6 Mb/s - Write 172.3 Mb/s CPU usage was also notably lower, running around about 25% most of the time. Sadly the backup did not complete as the backup device ran out of free space, and I haven’t got any more readily available. The bad part about this was it didn’t warn before attempting to do the backup that this might happen, and the good part was that invited a secondary location when it encountered the problem so that it could
