Macrium Reflect UPDATE

Hello,

I saw that the free MR edition have an update! I have build 5154 of v5.0. My question is: if I update it to the latest v5.1 , the images and the Bootable Rescue Media I created before will still work?

regards,
paulo

The images will work.

The bootable rescue media SHOULD work. Do you see any notification at Macrium site that rescue media needs to be updated?

Can you boot with the old rescue media and locate your image files and destination partition?

If in doubt, make new rescue media. I do that for major Macrium upgrades anyway. Not sure if I have to.

These updates come along fairly frequently. Old images will still be OK and you only need to make a new recovery disk if the release notes suggest it.
