     I am using Macrium Reflect to clone 3 partitions from a failing disk to a new identical drive, and the process has been running for 12 hours. The first 2 partitions say clone complete successfully and the third current progress is 100% over all progress is only 8%. It seems to now be hanging at verify. Can I cancel the operation and still keep the cloned disk intact without losing data?

I have posted within the staff forums asking for assistance. Hopefully someone with some Macrium experience will be able to add to your topic or assist you.

Your issue seems to be relevant to this knowledge base article. Please read through that to gain some understanding and follow those suggested troubleshooting steps so you can verify for yourself, whether or not your issue is hardware related. Software could be the issue too, but following those steps, you should be able to make that determination on your end. Thanks!

thanks for the response 1972vet. I am familiar with this article and have not received a verification error so it does not deal with my issue or answer my question. what I need to know is if I can end the process and not loose the cloned partitions and data.

I'm sorry but I cannot answer your specific question having no knowledge of your session or any real time access to it so I suggest you contact Macrium for a specific answer in your case.

 

I can say however, that my experience with a Macrium session hanging for me was only during a restore image function, never an image creation function...nevertheless, after I decided that the system was truly hung, I did end the process and found the image was restored just fine.

 

Seems at times an on board security product can interfere to that extent but in my case, the hangup was inconsequential regarding any corruption to the image. Best of luck to you in your endeavor.

If there is a "Cancel" button...I would hit it.  Then...I would run a hard drive diagnostic on the hard drive in question.

 

I use MR and the only time I've encountered any lag at all in function is when I was trying to clone a failing/failed hard drive.  When it finished, all I had was partition full of damaged/unreadable/unbootable files.

    Thanks for all the input, I will attempt to let it run until MR reports the third partition clone has completed successfully then I will end the process.
