I have run into problems with the above.
I need a pc genius to look at my attachments, outlining my problem
Please read. I also attach screen shots of my drives.
Here's hoping someone may be able to help?!!!
Acronis cloned drive on WIN7 SP1 inc., latest downloads (30/10/16)
I bought and installed a Samsung (850) 250GB and used the Samsung software to copy my system to it. This appeared successful and has been running for a year or so, apart from a new drive letter 'G' which appeared.
This seemed to be part of 'c' drive.
I also have a BD-ROM drive 'H' which I presumed is something to do with the Acronis software.
With the system running well, I formatted the previous 'C' drive - now 'D' (WD 500GB 3.5") drive and used it for storage. Everything running well apart from doing back-ups.
I have always had trouble trying to back-up my system to an Inatek usb external drive caddy with a 2.5" WD 500 hdd installed in it. Doing a Windows back-up, it always reported some files not backed-up.
Being unable to make a backup of my system on the usb Inatek - WD 500GB 2.5" , I then decided to clone my 'C' drive (Samsung 250GB SSD) to the on board WD 500GB 3.5" drive (D). Wish I hadn't!!!
The Inatek/WD drive was not shown in Computer - Hard Disc Drives, only by looking via Start-Right click Computer-Manage- Disc Management.
So, I began by cloning my 'C' drive to the next hdd 'D' (WD 500GB 3.5" on board) as a means of system back-up, using the Acronis software.
Having done this, I restarted and problems began.
I unplugged the 'D' drive WD500GB 3.5" and restarted.
It did not work.
So now I have to have all of the drives plugged in and starting is possible but slower than the usual SSD speed.
Question is - what can I do to rationalize this system and be able to make back-ups onto the usb Inatek/WD?
I probably need a genius to sort this out, so I'm hoping there is one in the community.!
