On 7 I used to see progress. On 8 no progress. It has been 15 minutes of no program feedback

Could it be version 7 is better? Anyone have a link to version 7 I can try?
I have checked the source and destination disks and they have no error
Data to copy is about 200 gb
It does the first partition of 50mb about instant
Clones like this on version 7 take about an hour.

But I see no progress which makes me wonder is anything happening....it just says processing shadow copy.
This is second time I am trying this. First time after no progress I powered off the PC.
Everything on the PC is super quiet, the destination disk is a spinner SATA drive

I know lots of people have experience here with Macrium, so how long will it hang at processing shadow copy?

I don't think it is Reflect's problem, looks more like you're suffering VSS issues (and that's an OS issue).

You can still get Reflect Free v7 direct from Macrium with their Download Agent.

cloning from disk 0 to disk 2
Both passed disk check under properties, tools
I priorly had used create partitions tool gui to delete everything on the disk and create a single partition
When I did that using windows tool new partition and formatted, it said healthy

The disk to clone is a SSD WD Blue, the disk to write on is a SATA spinner disk
Bios is set to AUTO for sata drives, not 3 gps, not 6 gps

wiped partitions on the destination drive, and reformatting now.
But it really should be MBR not GPT, although I think Macrium should handle wiping and making a MBR like it has before.
This older PC is not UEFI

And this time it is taking long time to format 1 TB drive.
I suppose this is going to take a while. I have been using this drive for clone back ups and restores for the past week on a different motherboard without a hitch.

I think I will try cloning to the Samsung 1 TB drive, it is mostly empty except for a few test recordings of WMC.
The format could take couple hours

The G: drive windows says is ok
Will try a clone on it

Seems I can not. Macrium hangs as a drive is being formatted, oh well....

Just waiting and watching WMC for now. Macrium has completely stopped responding I suppose due to the formatting.

WMC still works really great and we also have all the streaming you know Netflix Disney Amazon Hulu. You can get info from the green button forum

Then checkdisk in tools
Everything is fine, on to trying a clone process

Not feeling confident so far
Maybe I should try copying lots of files by the file manager and see if it fails
I will give it 5 minutes then force shutdown
I have not found a way to stop the process. Task manager cant stop it.

may have found the problem, manually copying many gb, the copy process stops here at 36%
like I thought chkdsk would know better?
IT must be a bad drive, the copy process has hung up.
