Well here goes my dilema..
I have for many years used Macrium free version and decided I had free loaded enough and bought a copy.
I have a backup schedule of incremental once a week and full backup monthly.
After installing my paid for version the first incremental backup failed due to "Unable to read from disk - Error Code 23 - Data error (cyclic redundancy check)"
I don't think the paid for version gave any problems and it is just a coincidence.
Hmm no big deal I though , did some searching for possible causes checked the disk for bad sectors - nothing found.
I ran CHKDSK /f /r /x and wham killed on reboot it giving BSOD " NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM" error ,still no big deal I thought
I went through the usual methods of trying to repair and after a couple of hours thought I will just install a full backup image on a new disk !
Well what happened next is why I am here !
Current configuration is as follows :-
Windows 11 21H2
O.S. is on a 512GB M.2 NVME SSD Drive C:
Files pictures music is on a SATA III 500 GB SSD Drive E:
UBUNTU is on 512GB M.2 SSD Drive D: This was installed separately and is not a dual boot system.
The full backup does drives C: and E:
My rescue disk was created with the Free version of Mac8 I hadn't updated it yet and now can't !)
I put in a new M.2 SSD 1TB in, I left the other drives in situ
I used my bootable recovery disk and loaded my last full backup followed the drill to install the image and... no boot. Hmm double check everything and tried again... no boot
I did a quick install of Win11 22H2 just incase there was a hardware issue.. worked fine. Disk wiped afterwards.
Soo I booted into UBUNTU and look at the new SSD it only contained the files from drive E: ?
Went back and checked my image file and sure enough the Windows OS was there as well as my files from E:
I am at a bit of a loss as how to proceed, any insight would be welcom
