OS: WIndows 10 64-bit, Macrium Reflect v.8
The question in the subject line is self-explanatory, but I do need to define why it is being asked:
I have a multiple-drives Windows 10 PC, the OS currently still on a SATA 6/III Samsung SSD. I have also always had what I call my "emergency drive", a physical duplicate of the OS drive that is offline until I have some OS problem and need to use it to do a system restore.
This is far faster than restoring off my Macrium Rescue USB (my OS has thousands of small audio and other media creation content files or samples, so backups and restore take longer than a basic consumer OS). And in this situation, I've run into a snag:
I'm upgrading my SATA6/III OS drive from a 256 Gb to a 1 TB NVMe M.4. For starters I did a restore on its capacity duplicate (the emergency drive), a 1 TB SATA6/III - which is what I am using as I write this. Restore was as usual, flawless.
Three attempts to restore the exact same backup to the NVMe resulted in not being able to boot ("Inaccessible boot device"). Even with all other drives disconnected.
But from what I've read -- and unless the 1 TB NVMe M.4 is possibly defective, which it may or may not be -- I'd have to restore off of the USB Rescue so as to be able to load the Windows NVMe driver as per this instruction on using Redeploy
I talked to Samsung and they suggested I return the NVMe for a replacement. I'll be doing that but I still will have to deal with this issue of Redeploy once I get the replacement.
So back to the subject line query: Does my duplicate of Reflect 8 on my usually offline emergency drive have a built-in Rescue and Redeploy option, or is that only available on the Rescue Media on a USB or other such device?
It would save time if the answer were that it is available in the full on-PC Reflect, but I can't find anything like that. If it is available, where to I look?
Thank you for your help.
