    A few words of praise for Reflect...

    Am in a process of finetuning 10 ltsc + getting programs and settings together on my new Dell 5540. Sometimes need switching back and forth between original 10 pro and new 10 ltsc. Don't have the luxury ftm of having several SSD's to swap (and opening up the 5540 is a lot of screws). So using Reflect images.

    ltsc\pro Images are on a bitlocker (unlocked) external drive. Simply pick an image to restore, Reflect builds it's boot wim on the pc itself, reboots, keeps the external drive unlocked, restores all partitions flawlessly. Works so well, amazing reliablity and ease.

    Poopoosan = [​IMG]

    Previous ISO = Windows PE 10 (suitable for booting / backing up Wincows 10 taptops

    New ISO = Regular (larger ISO but suitable for backing up any OS including Linux taptops or older Windows versions.)

    It's amusing that the link for v8 downloads the final version of v7. As a free version, that's already quite an amazing bit of kit!

    VostHost asked "Do I check the box for viboot when I install?" but you never answered that, Spartan. I find myself in exactly the same position now and would like your advice. Despite my signature, I'm installing Reflect on a backup machine being an MSI GT73VR with twin 128 Gb SSD's for its C: drive (RAID 0).

    Macrium Reflect (Free) 8.0.5963 fixes other bugs
    good Morning June 7, 2021 7:07 p.m.

    Macrium Reflect has now received the fifth update after the release of version 8. Here, too, some problems that had crept in were quickly resolved.

    • Clone:
    • When executing clone jobs in 'batch' mode, the clone dialog was incorrectly displayed at the end of the job. This has been fixed.
    • The system tray icon could be hidden for planned clone jobs. This problem has been resolved.
    • Windows PE: If Windows PE has a low horizontal screen resolution of 800 pixels or less, the restore / clone dialog could be “cut off”, making the “Finish” button inaccessible. This problem has been resolved.
    • ReflectUI.exe: ReflectUI could generate a program error under Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 and lead to several icons being displayed in the notification area. This problem has been resolved.
    • Backup on DVD / CD: Reflect could generate a program exception if optical media were ejected at the end of a backup. This problem has been resolved.
    • Backing up files and folders: When searching for password protected / encrypted file and folder backups, the correct password entered was rejected, causing the search to fail. This problem has been resolved.
    • Data storage warning: The warning at the end of the backup, if the retention cleaner deletes all backups before executing the backup, was not suppressed if the retention rules were explicitly set to retain 1 Full. This has been fixed.
    • Misc: Various minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.

    As a hint afterwards. The free version of Macrium Reflect will not be officially offered until later. If you want to try Macrium Reflect 8, you can also install the 30-day test version of the Home. After the 30 days, this will be converted into a free version. An update in the free version currently means that the v7 will be reinstalled.

    Macrium Reflect (Free) 8.0.5994 with many corrections 21, June 2021

    Mr. Tim sleeping again:)


    Macrium has made a new update available for download for the Reflect (Free) backup program. This time the release note has been filled for almost all areas.

    Bug fixes and Improvements v8.0.5994 - 21st June 2021

    • Windows PE
      When mapping a network drive in WinPE/RE the error "A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated." could be encountered. This has been resolved.
    • Rescue Media Builder
      We've added the WinRE Boot\Resources folder contents to the rescue media build for improved loading visualization.
    • Log View
      Log Files View would crash if a completion message exceeded 255 chars, this has been resolved.
    • UI Theme
      • Some Edit controls in viBoot would fail to respond to mouse interactions when using dark themes. This has been resolved.
      • When using the light theme, some UI elements would incorrectly display a dark grey overlay. This has been resolved.
    • Consolidation
      • The standalone consolidation tool 'Consolidate.exe' rejected correct passwords for password protected backups. This has been resolved.
      • A rare condition could cause consolidation to fail with a 'Bad file descriptor' error. This has been resolved.
    • Backup File Name
      • When an Incremental or Differential had no backup set to append to and created a Full, the {BACKUPTYPE} Parameter would be incorrectly replaced with the requested type rather than 'Full'. This has been resolved.
      • A backup set with alternative locations, where the Full backup was created with Macrium Reflect v7.2.4732 or earlier, could cause the backup file name to exclude the default Image ID and target the wrong directory. This has been resolved.
      • We've added a 'Collision Sequence' number that persists for a backup set when the Full backup has the same name as an existing backup. This ensures that backup sets with similar names and no unique prefix, can be easily identified by file name.
    • VBScript Generation
      The auto generated VBScript source template failed to run with a code syntax error. This has been resolved.
    • Scheduled Tasks
      In some circumstances, when editing non SYSTEM account scheduled tasks, Reflect would ask for a username and password even when one had already been provided. This has been resolved.
    • Restore
      • The locked drive dialog incorrectly showed drive 'X:' rather than the locked volume when prompting to restore using using the rescue media. This has been resolved.
      • When launching a restore from an image file in Windows Explorer, the restore Wizard would be suppressed for the first run after a reboot. This has been resolved.
      • The Restore/Clone automatic resize was not locking the size of MBR WinRE recovery partitions. This has been resolved.
    • Existing Backups View
      The Existing Backups view could become unsynchronized with the "Folders To Search". This has been resolved.
    • Backup Definition Rename
      • Renaming a backup definition file could lead to an abnormal Reflect termination. This has been resolved.
      • Renaming a backup definition file could cause the next definition in the list to incorrectly show the name of the file just renamed. This has been resolved.
    • Network Path Auto-Complete
      A long delay could be encountered when entering a UNC or network share path as a backup path. This has been resolved.
    • Server Plus
      • When backing up Microsoft Exchange the incorrect databases, intermittently, could be listed in the backup summary. This has been resolved.
      • Exchange backups could fail with: "One or more files failed the copy process" if the database path uses a different case to the defaulted case. This has been resolved.
    • viBoot
      The network adapter settings in the create VM wizard could be incorrectly hidden. This has been resolved.
    • Various
      Various minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.
