If D: is not the Recovery Partition in the image it's possible you selected System Backup instead of Disk Backup. The next time to do a backup make sure all boxes are checked on the source drive to be backed up.

Can you post a screenshot of Disk Management?

I follow these steps for restoring Windows on Macrium Reflect.

 

1) Restore (the item next to the Disk Image) 

2) Browse For An Image File

3) Restore Image (the item on the most right)

 

I follow these steps for creating the Image File on Macrium Reflect.

 

1) Disk Image - Backup Tasks - Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows

 

I attached the screenshot of Disk Management screen.

 

I'm waiting for the response.

 

Thank you very much for the answer.

The reason  D: was not backed up by Macrium is because D: is another hard drive on the computer. You will need to create another disk image and select your Disk 1 (D:) shown in Disk Management. Macrium cannot image two different hard drives at the same time.

Please start Macrium, click Backup and post a screenshot.

 

Edit: When you click the Backup tab make sure you select Image Selected Disks on This Computer and not the one shown in the red box in my attached image.

In my previous post showed an image. In Macrium click the Backup tab, could be called Disk Image, and select Image Selected Disks on this Computer. You may need to select the black arrow to expand the selection. You can also get to Image Selected Disks from the top menu bar.

 

Edit: I was looking for an image of Macrium when you first run the program.

When I first run the program the screen is like that on the attached picture called "Macrium Reflect First Run"

 

 

When I go "Backup - Image Selected Disks on this Computer" like you said on the previous post then the drive "D" comes up. I think it is the solution we are looking for.

 

The screen is like that on this screen. Attached picture "Macrium Reflect Image Selected Disks"

 

Thank you very much
