        I’m not seeing a slow down here. Have you  recently updated Macrium?

        I updated still had problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled still same problem. I’m thinking

        of changing to a different program unless I figure this one out.

        thanks for your reply

          Run chkdsk from an elevated command prompt. Do not choose to fix any errors. Let’s just see what chkdsk reports.

          Also run Speccy and see what it reports for your disk’s health status.

            no errors

            health is Ok

        Macrium Reflect has an active User Group, many members of which are real Macrium Reflect pros.  You might query them regarding your issue.

        I, personally, have never experienced your problem with the program.

        While trying to load have you checked Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) to see what is using your resources?

        HTH 😎

        Are you only using local drives?

        No, not my experience at all with Macrium Reflect. Working fine daily here. I’m sure this has something to do with your setup rather than a general Macrium software issue. Go to their support forum and ask for help:
        Someone will very likely get back to you within a day.

        Are you running a paid version? If so, after checking the forums, call it in to Macrium support – they are quite responsive and definitely have the expertise.

        Personally, with a bunch of Win-7-Pro machines and one Win-10 (20H2), I haven’t seen this. I update as they come which is no big pain.

      • #2379126

        I have tries all your responses and still nothing. I’m going to there support site and see if they
        can help. I have free version for now if they can correct this I would buy, but not till it runs Ok again.

        thanks for all your suggestions
