Quote:
What's new? v4.2.2733:
  • GPT disk support.
    Reflect can now image and restore GPT disks. This requires purchasing 'Macrium Reflect Additions' add-on. For more information please visit www.macrium.com/additions
  • Restore images to different hardware - NOT Windows Server
    Macrium Reflect can now enable different hardware to boot your existing Windows installation. A new product called 'ReDeploy' is available in the 'Macrium Reflect Additions' add-on. For more information please visit www.macrium.com/additions
  • New Disk Space Management options
    The DSM options now include:

    New option to purge old backups based on a specified number of full backups to retain in the backup target directory.
    New option to run the DSM purge before the backup or after a successful backup has run.
  • File and folder restore - Restore folder dates
    The file and folder restore process now restores the creation and last modified dates of retored folders.
  • Improved speed for File Systems with 512 bytes per cluster
    Reflect could be slow to startup if a large file system was detected with a cluster size of only 512 bytes.
  • Image mounting service can now be set to 'Manual' start instead of 'Automatic'
    ReflectService.exe will now be started when required and is not dependant on the 'Automatic' start option to start the service at Windows boot time.
Bug fixes:
  • Disk Space Management for differential images and backups bug
    DSM options were being carried forward from the full image that was being appended to during the differential/Incremental edit process. This has been resolved and the correct DSM values are now stored in the XML file.
  • Using 'High Priority' could make Windows very slow to respond during a 'File and Folder' backup with many thousands of folders
    The highest thread priority is now THREAD_PRIORITY_HIGHEST instead of THREAD_PRIORITY_TIME_CRITICAL
  • Partition / Disk detection issue
    If a disk had a partition formatted beyond the end of the reported size of the disk then the disk would show no partitions available to image in the Reflect main Window. Reflect now extends the disk size if a partition is greater than the reported disk size.
  • Linux Ext partition incremental/differential problem with multiple disks
    If a Linux Ext2/3/4 partition is incremented and Windows detects the local disks in a different sequence after a reboot then Reflect would fail to identify the Linux partition for the incremental / differential image. This has been resolved.
  • VBScript - Email not sent for scheduled tasks on Vista/Server 2008
    By default, a subroutine is created in the VBScript source to 'elevate' the VBScript for User Account Control (UAC). The Windows 'User Profile Hive Cleanup Service' was incorrectly closing required registry keys (after 5 minutes) for both Reflect and WScript if the VBScript is scheduled and elevated at run time. A new parameter ("-s") is now passed to any scheduled VBScript source files that disable UAC elevation for scheduled tasks.
  • Linux rescue CD compatibility mode error
    When setting the Linux CD for 'Compatibility Mode' this could cause your network interface card (NIC) not to be detected. This has been resolved.
  • Program crash if application is closed while scanning disks.
    A program error would occur if Reflect was closed while the scanning disks 'Splash' window was showing. This has been resolved.
  • Program crash when deleting a scheduled task
    A program error could occur after deleting a freshly created scheduled task. This has been resolved.
  • Memory leak in ReflectService.exe
    A small memory leak has been fixed in ReflectService.exe.
For those who are not familiar with Macrium here is a small tutorial kindly put together by our member WHS

Thanks Mitch, very useful. I wonder whether they require to burn a new recovery disk. If I remember right, that was the case at some earlier release change.

I did an update through the program & it did not request a new disk but i will burn one anyway. CD are cheap & the Linux is only 6-7mb

I just do an update through the program Carl it was only 6mb, i have done them that way in the past without any problems.

It will download the "Patches" & give you a couple of on screen prompts to apply them

Carl:

I just downloaded and installed the Macrium update.

I considered doing a formal uninstall of my existing version, but did not.

Instead, I just poked the new EXE file. I think I saw an onscreen notice go by that said something to the effect that the earlier version was being uninstalled. So, apparently you don't need to uninstall.

After the install, I made a new rescue disc--just in case that might be required.

I then booted from both the new rescue disc and my old rescue disc and saw NO differences. In both cases I was able to choose a source partition for a restore and choose a destination location. All drives and partitions were visible in both cases.

Of course, I didn't actually restore, but I saw no indication that the old rescue disc would not have worked well.
