Performance :: How To Clone Bootable SD Card

Jan 11, 2016

Does Macrium or other common/good backup/clone package can take an existing good bootable SD Card and clone it to a fresh one? do they need to be exact matches [brand/speed/size] or near-proxy?

Performance :: Create Bootable UEFI Defrag Flash Drive?

Feb 10, 2016

Here is the issue I am currently at:

I have a Surface Pro 4 that I want to set up a Dual Boot on. I normally wouldn't have too much of an issue resolving this on my own, but due to the Surface Pro 4 not supporting Legacy flash drives, my standard way (Booting into a MBR Flash Drive w/ an Offline OS on it and doing the defrag/moving the files to the beginning of the drive) of solving this issue has left me baffled. I've attempted downloading Rufus and utilizing a MBR ISO (Which failed, since it didn't have the EFI boot sector on it), going back and forth amongst various methods of removing secure boot (which was a doozy at first, after having to go through recovering my BitLocker key) in order to boot from legacy, all to no avail.

Basically, I want to take my SSD, and move all the files to the beginning, which I can't do in Windows due to system files being in use (Ironically, a large portion being near the end of the drive). All I am looking for is a method to create a bootable UEFI flash drive that I can use to defrag/do this from. I've dug a little bit around on Linux and didn't find anything that seemed to be able to do it, as most options seemed only relevant to Windows PCs. Is there any options available to do this? Or would formatting and reinstalling it be the only option?

Performance :: How To Make System Recovery Disk On SD Card

Dec 4, 2015

I am using a small tablet with Windows on it. It already has little space (32GB which is actually 29 GB), with Windows eating up a ton of space. Now, with a virtual partition on the tablet reserved for system recovery, I have less than 5 GB left, not enough for Windows to update. I would like to merge the virtual partition so as to get ~5 GB extra space, in or to do so I would like to make a recovery disk on a SD-card.

The problem is, Windows does not seem to recognise the SD-card when I try to make a recovery disk! Is there a workaround, or did I get the SD-card in vain?

Card Reader On Gateway FX530 Will No Longer Recognize SD Card When Inserted?

Aug 24, 2015

I have installed Windows10 on a Gateway FX530 desktop PC. All has gone well with one exception. The OS seems to recognize that there is a card reader attached, I can see them through Device manager. When I insert a SD card the system completely ignores the device and will not allow me to access it. I have tried to change the drivers, without success. This card reader worked just fine with Windows 7 Pro and there was no indication that they would not work with Windows 10 when I ran the upgrade test.

Clone Only C Drive To SSD?

Nov 15, 2015

I am using Windows 10. And I just received November Update yesterday.

My new Samsung 250 GB SSD is on the way , and I don't want to install a fresh install. With my 1Mbps (128KBps) internet it will take more than a day to complete.

My HDD is 500 GB , but C drive is only 50 GB.

I want to close only the C drive into SSD and make it a 200GB+ partition (or less but more than 50 GB). I will be using HDD for media storage and SDD for OS and Apps.

Install To SSD ( No Clone )

Dec 20, 2015

I have an existing Windows 10 computer with corrupt W10 image that Microsoft says I need to totally reinstall. I also have a new SSD waiting to be installed. Due to corruption I do not want to clone. W10 USB has been created with Media creation tool. The questions - Do I need to format the SSD before W10 install? If so, how? Do I need to partition the SSD? If so how and with how many partitions of what size? I assume then I can unplug the HDD, plug in the SSD, boot from the USB, and it would install W10 onto the SSD.

Updates :: Activation After Clone To SSD?

Oct 30, 2015

laptop has Win 10 that was an free upgrade from Windows 7. If I clone to SSD will activation remain? I know if hardware changes will be an issue. I will backup key just in case, not sure it is needed. later hopefully a fresh install.

I have used Easeus and Acronis in the past with Windows 7, always with bootable media to do the clone. first time cloning windows 10, was thinking about Macrium, just never tried it. Put the new SSD in place and boot to the HDD as external?

C Drive Clone Won't Boot

Jan 18, 2016

I'm trying disgnosis for my Dad, who's trying to move over to SSD.

The story so far: Using AOMEI backupper bootable disk, we tried to clone his current HDD onto the SSD. Part-way through the clone process, it gives an error saying that the drive is too fragmented to clone, and stops.

We run defrag on the C: Drive, resulting in a 1% fragmented drive at the end, and try again.

The same message crops up - too fragmented. It turns out the 'recovery' partition (It's an OEM machine, so its ~10Gb rather than the normal 100Mb) is too fragmented to clone, and we can't defrag it.

So we just clone the C: drive, leaving 1Gb of unallocated space, and then use the recovery DVD's to run startup repair, hoping it will restore the MBR or 'normal' recovery partition, and make the system load.
All we get is a blue screen with a blinking cursor in the top left that persists or over 5 minutes.

Startup Repair completes successfully. According to the Log file it ran 2 iterations of the repair operations, and found no errors! However the drive still will not boot.

This is particuarly annoying as I have used backupper both personally and professionally and have NEVER seen the fragmentation issue before, or had any issue at all for that matter with a cloned drive.

Installation :: How To Clone From Uninstalled SSD To New Laptop

Oct 22, 2015

My previous laptop running windows 10 finally gave up the ghost and died on me. Not a hard drive issue but power problems (in trying to fix it I broke some of the solder joints), any way it was 5 years old and was due to be replaced, however the hard drive was absolutely fine. So I bought a new laptop with a shiny new 1tb hard drive with windows 10 pre-installed.

So having used Macrium before (when I installed a 256gb SSD) I decided to leave the new laptop as a clean install and reinstall any programs that I still needed. Guess what, it seems that there was an awful lot of stuff that I had accumulated that I just didn't need any more. After copying some documents over for work and installing a couple of essentials total space used including OS is less than 75gb.

Drivers/Hardware :: Clone Only Used Space On 2TB HDD To 500 GB SSD

Sep 17, 2015

I've installed a new 500 GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO in my system. I want to clone only the "used" portion of my 2TB HDD (about 370 GB) to the SSD for faster performance when I boot, run programs, etc.

I'm a bit of a noob, and when I go into "Disk Management" one option is to shrink the largest volume on my HDD. I'm thinking that if I shrink it down to about 370 GB from the current 1.8 TB maybe then I can go ahead and clone using, say, Macrium Reflect. Once the cloning is done, I want to boot from the SSD, back it up, and then wipe the HDD and use it as a mass storage disk.

FYI, the HDD is encrypted by Bitlocker.

Is it as simple as that? What issues do I need to watch out for?

Accounts :: Update Created A Clone Of User Account

Dec 6, 2015

I had Windows 10 configured to auto log on with only a single user account and haven't had a single issue until last night after a restart to apply updates. Now when I boot my PC I am stopped at the login screen stating my password is invalid. The reason it's invalid is I now have two accounts with my name assigned however the one it tries to log into by default is the newly created one (it looks like it simply duplicated my original) and it doesn't allow any access to Windows. I select my original and log in manually just fine.

The problem is there is only one User listed in the User Accounts settings and that account only appears on initial boot as I can log out to the login screen post boot and the account has disappeared.

If I clone a disc with Acronis true home image . Does it just copy programmas and apps I have installed? This would save me a lot of time if this is true. For example if I have Windows 10 Home installed when I backed it up and installed pro, would it keep my windows 10 professional licence and Office Etc. On to my new install.

Disk Is Not Bootable

Jan 29, 2016

I have a folder structure (see below) that is created after upgrade from W7 to W10. In my previous question a day ago it was confirmed that it could be used for creating W10 installation media. So I don't want to repeat how it was created. It was created automatically and it is 3GB in size.

My question: I burned files and folders to DVD using native W10 burn files to disk method. The disk is not bootable. The structure on the root of the disk is exact as in Windows folder on the pic. Did I miss the option for making it bootable? Or it should be bootable just by burning the content to DVD?

How To Create A Bootable DVD

Jul 29, 2015

Since windows 10 has been launched and it has already been downloaded on my PC and installed. I wanted to know how to create a boot-able DVD so that I can also install it later, you know like doing a completely fresh installation and having the windows staying activated. Cuz windows was upgraded to 10 from 8.1 and Microsoft didn't gave me any key, so if I install it again on the same device will it remain activated?

Create Bootable USB From Another Computer?

Jan 3, 2016

Had tried to update the BIOS on my son's Alienware Aurora R4 so that we could install an upgraded graphics card (980 Ti).

Used the Dell Support site - and was upgrading from Bios 7 to Bios 9 - would eventually go up to current version 11 before swapping GPU.

Followed all the steps on the Dell site - but afterwards - it acts like my hard drive has died (doubting this - have fairly new Samsung 512GB SSD as the only hard drive).

Computer boots into Bios now - but says "inaccessible boot device". My son had done the update from Windows 8 that came on the machine to Windows 10 - but apparently did not create a boot disk or USB drive.

Can I create a "generic" bootable USB on another computer - WITHOUT REINSTALLING WINDOWS? I do not want to lose info/settings on his machine if at all possible.

Waiting on Alienware Tech support to respond - machine is about 2.5 years old and out of warranty

Installation :: How To Make A Bootable USB

Jul 29, 2015

My gamer Laptop (ASUS G55VW ROG) is now upgrated from Windows 7 SP1. It went smooth and without errors.Before fiddle around too much I want to make a bootable USB-key with Windows 10 installaion to make a clean install possible if I mess windows up so it can't boot.But how do I make this bootable USB-key? I know I can "reset" the PC from "settings", but that only works if it can boot .I had the understanding, that it would be possible to make a DVD or an USB-pen to make a clean install? And what about cd-key when cleaninstalling from that bootdevice?
