I'm trying to sort this out. I've got 5 physical drives in this rig. 2 of them are important enough to me to backup to a 3rd drive. The other two are...meh.
The Changed Block Tracker seems to be something that helps Macrium work better, faster, and more efficiently. See https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW7/Macrium+Changed+Block+Tracker
My understanding is that it can be enabled by selecting "actions" and then "enable CBT" for each drive. That puts a shadowed icon up. AFTER the first Macrium backup of that drive, then the CBT goes active and the icon goes from grey (shadowed) to blue.
Here's my drive image.
The two drives I have backing up (and they've both already done an initial, full, backup and a second, incremental, backup) are disk 1 and disk 5. Disk 5 is the OS disk. Disk 1 is the Data disk.
Disk 5 has 3 active partitions. The green square is the C partition. CBT is active and working. The two red squares are on the partitions for the boot table (GPT) and the windows recovery partition. They get imaged by Macrium, so why no CBT?
is the Data disk. It has been treated just like disk 5. Yet, the red square shows that CBT has not "gone live". Why not?Disk 1 is being used for stuff I don't need to backup, so the red square shows that I've never selected CBT. That's as expected.
Disk 3 is a spare (at the moment) and is blank. Yet, CBT is ready to go. (Orange square.) That's fine.
Disk 4 is my backup disk, so I've enabled Image Guardian (blue circle). That's fine.
TLDR; Disk two
shows that CBT has not activated even after a Full and an Incremental backup. That seems wrong. Disk 5 shows two partitions (boot and recovery) which do not have CBT implemented. I -assume- CBT only works by using the OS, therefore these two partitions are not "eligible" for CBT?
Edited because I am talking about DISK 2
...my "Data Disk".
