Dear Forum members,

first of all, just a bit of background information:
Reflect v7.2.4473
Source: Laptop with Windows 10 and Bitlocker encryption disabled
Destination: VirtualBox VDI disk (VM configured for Windows 10 64-bit)

I have created an image with above mentioned Reflect version and beforehand I've successfully unlocked the C drive with manage-bde. The backup process went fine.
Now I want to restore this image to a VirtualBox VM, configured to Windows 10 with a 100GB drive.
Hence, I'm starting the Reflect RescueISO and if for example I select just the first partition ("1 - BOOT" (None)), FAT32 (LBA) Primary, 27.1MB of 750MB used, and try to restore it to the virtual disk within the VM, I receive the following error: (virtual disk recognized as: "Disk 1 [0000000] - VBOX HARDDISK 1.0 <100.00B>"


Restore failed - Error 1


I have also tried to mark the virtual disk as GPT via DiskPart, but that doesn't change anything.

Anyone able to advise?

Regards, Mike

Hi Mike

Thanks for posting. Sorry you are having problems. 

It looks like the disk layout view in Reflect is stale. Did you modify the local disk using DiskPart before initiating the Restore? Can you try hitting the 'Refresh' link in the 'Backup' tab to re-load the local disk layouts and trying the restore again?

Kind Regards

Hello Nick,

probably a misinterpretation. For testing purposes I've only drag'n'dropped the first partition "1 - BOOT (None)" from the source image "GPT Disk 1 [3...9] - LENSE3...A 1.6.0412 <238.47 GB>" to the local disk.
If I'm adding all disks (surely needs a bit of resizing) I'm getting a different error.
I've also tried to convert the local disk to GPT via DiskPart, but still runs into errors.

Happy to do more testing, whatever you think helps in resolving the issue.

Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike,

Please ensure that the target disk is un-initialized (empty) by using DiskPart clean and try again. After cleaning the disk, click the 'Refresh' button on the 'Backup' tab to load the new layout.

It isn't necessary to initialize a disk before restoring and changing the disk layout without refreshing will cause restore problems.

Hello Nick,

so, I followed your advise, see outcome below, while trying to restore only the first partition:







Trying the same with all partitions from the image, see outcome below:




Any ideas what's going wrong here?

Has anybody else noticed that the restore is from Disk 1 to Disk 1; seems strange to me.

^ In an image restore, the disk number in the Source is just the ID of the disk at the time the image was originally captured. The disk number in the Destination is the disk number of the target at the current time. The Source “disk” within the image file doesn’t have a disk number assigned within Windows since of course it’s just data inside a file.  But in a typical image restore scenario where you'd be restoring an image onto its original source disk in order to roll the disk back to an earlier point in time, a "Disk 1 to Disk 1" restore would be a pretty common occurrence.

But now I’m curious what’s going on here based on the most recent test results complete with screenshots. Staying tuned to hear from Macrium....

Hi Mike

Where is the source image file located? It's showing in folder 'C:\GNN11K\'. Drive 'C' looks like a local disk, but there isn't a local disk other than the restore drive (which is empty) in your screen shot of the Reflect 'Backup' window. DiskPart shows two disks, but the second disk (Disk 1 in DiskPart)  has no recognized file system (0 Bytes Free), is this correlated in Reflect?:

the source image is located on an USB 4TB disk drive, where as the destination is a VirtualBox VDI image drive, which should be recognized as an internal drive. (see initial description of this thread: "Destination: VirtualBox VDI disk (VM configured for Windows 10 64-bit)"

The USB passthrough disk should be shown as a local/Internal disk by Reflect and DiskPart. But DiskPart is showing it as unformatted and Reflect isn't showing it (at least in your screen shot). 

What happens if you take the 'Verify' option for the Image file in the Restore tab?
Can you configure network access to the same file to see if that changes the restore outcome?
