I'm currently using acronis on recommendation from over of my fav tech YouTubers because although MR worked flawlessly for me drive BACKUP wise, I've never had a successful drive CLONE with it when I upgraded systems from a HDD to an SSD.

The systems NEVER booted even though I selected all partitions, there was always a boot problem. Every single time something was wrong with either the BCD or the EFI partition. Retrying multiple times with Linux vs winPE based media changed nothing.

Acronis has worked for me every single time, the first try. But last year they moved into the cyber security market (think antivirus, anti-malware, anti-ransomware) and true image got bloated and renamed to 'Cyber Security Home Office' and I don't like it 1 bit.

I may have to give MR another shot. I still have my V6 full and V7 upgrade key.

Did you try the Fix Boot Problems in the Reflect Rescue Media?  There are a few posts on the Macrium support forums right now from some who are having cloning issues.  They keep getting Error 9 trying to read, though.

 

I moved away from True Image a long time ago because the recovery media either never recognized the external HDD or, worse, DID BUT, AFTER DELETING the target partition for restore, the software conveniently FORGETS the USB HDD was there, rendering you with an unbootable system!  After that last fiasco where it HAD SEEMED TI was FINALLY viable again, I left it far behind.  As you said, TI is now some kind of cyber security bloatware.

Nope, didn't know about it. And for the review i shouldn't have too. A drive clone should make an exact copy of the boot info and fire right up, it shouldn't need repairing.

If ATI can do it right the first time without needing boot record repair, then so should MR. I've never had any problems with it recognizing internal or external drives (not even my nvme based m.2 drive in a USB enclosure). It always saw them before, during and after the clone, and did what it should do and do it right, on the first try.

TI was doing this USB forgetting or not finding them over a decade ago, which was the last time I used it.

 

I've never done it with TI so I can't say, but particularly if you're cloning from one type of hardware to another, you may even to run ReDeploy in Reflect.

 

I've never used the cloning feature of Reflect, but there are several posts I've seen on its forums regarding people needing help with it.
