Sorry i forgot to say, i'm happy with the pics where they are for the minute, i'll need to work out how to store them in the new photo app.

 

Would you like to progress further?

Yes, good to go.   I will need you to give me a refresh of your computer status.

1.  start the computer.

2.  Plug in the USB caddy.

3.  Open Disk Management, > go full screen, > take a screenshot and upload in your next reply..

4.  Unplug the USB caddy.

 

You may have already created a Macrium Reflect rescue USB in the past, but, I need you to create a new one running from you new OS drive.

You can use, overwrite the old USB stick.

 

Please make sure the USB caddy is not connected.

 

Create a restore point > start MR > create rescue media accepting the defaults.

Hello, apologies - this may be a little long winded!

 

Instead of creating a restore point i actually restored the PC but only to a point 2 days ago when an up date ran

 

I carried out the same instruction as in post #174 & #176 - screenshots below (some files fixed)

 

I then took the screenshot from Disk Management as asked in post #183

 

Then i successfully created a restore point

 

I have not used Macrium reflect recently so i accepted the defaults as instructed. Opened app > selected top left '''CREATE BOOTABLE RESCUE MEDIA''' >  the default was at 'WINDOWS BOOT MEDIA' so i selected 'BUILD' & finished that operation.

 

Then i selected ''REMOVABLE FLASH DRIVE'' & let that complete-------- I hope i havent goofed up doing this
