Macrium Reflect 4.2.2952 Released

September 28, 2010

Macrium Reflect 4.2.2952 is available. Changelog below.


information   Information

What's new? 4.2.2952:
  • New option to add comments to Images and file backups.
    Comments can be added by clicking the 'Advanced' button in the backup Wizard. Comments are shown as tooltips when selecting backups in the browse, verify and restore dialogs. See the help file for more information. This includes an update to the Linux rescue CD to show image file comments.
  • Allow volume mount points as an image destination
    You can now select a volume mount point as the destination of an image file even if the path to the mount point is a sub-folder of the image being created.
  • ReDeploy - Improved .inf file parsing
    Faster scanning of .inf files when using Macrium ReDeploy. Macrium ReDeploy is provieded with the Macrium Reflect Addtiions add-on, and enables restoration on Windows to dissimilar hardware.
  • File and folder backup. Exclude hidden and system files is no-longer the default option.
    The default option when creating a new file and folder backup is now to include hidden and system files.
  • Improved memory management for File and Folder backups
    Macrium Reflect uses less memory during file and folder backups. This prevents low memory issues when backing up large numbers (millions) of files and folders.
  • Windows PE rescue CD update is available.
    Please click the 'Updates' button in the Rescue CD burn wizard for more information.
Bug fixes:
  • Fixed problem with slow network enumeration
    Macrium Reflect could become slow or unresponsive when navigation network shares for a backup destination. This has been ersolved.
  • Fixed problem with network based incremental file and folder backups when the root backup folder is offline.
    Network incremental file and folder backups could cause an incremental backup to record the deletion of a folder if the root source folder was not available on a network share. The backup will now aborrt with a network error.
  • Fixed problem with mounting differentials from the command line
    Using the command line option to mount a differential image could cause the full image to be mounted as well as the differential. This has been resolved.

Your link isn't to the free version.
It is the 30day free trial.

It was just the link for Macrium.com, as I don't see the free edition on their site.

Posted a download.com link to the free one in the first post.

If you're already running MR, when you next start it, it will tell you about this update and offer to download and install it for you. I bought a multi-license version and every machine has prompted for this in the last day.

Hi there
it seems a LOT of companies are either HIDING the fact that they HAVE a FREE edition or cause so much obfuscation that nobody ever knows the differences between the FREE and PAID for editions.

Here is a link to the DIFFERENCES.

IMO the FREE version - while better than nothing -- won't offer anything remotely required for a decent backup strategy. Also it doesn't do INCREMENTAL backups either.

I use Acronis but the feature set of the PAID FOR macrium reflect looks pretty standard -- but DO check first before relying on the FREE version to do most of what you need --it's VERY limited -- and WON'T EVEN DO FILE BACKUPS -- it's imaging or nothing.

Fine for imaging an OS but totally a waste of time when you need to also backup DATA --you don't want different software and strategies to handle these.

Here's the feature comparison between the FREE and PAID FOR versions.

Couldn't agree more. If you want to use Macrium, do yourself a favor and get the paid version. It's not particularly expensive.

That's perfect, that is the ONLY thing that I want Macrium to do.

I don't necessarily agree that you don't want different tools or strategies. That is exactly what I want.

I use robocopy and copy my data files to 2 external drives...1 of which is kept off site at all time. I prefer this for data because my files are not within any type of container file, they are readily accessible from any machine and they are a 100% synced copy of exactly what I had.

I use imaging apps (like Macrium/Acronis/EaseUS) to just make an image of the computer. I usually keep 1 image of the machine as it was brand new right after patching an activation. I keep a second image which is the most recent image that I took with all my stuff there. These are the only 2 that I need...the first and the last. I don't want to return to any point in the middle.
