Windows 7: Macrium free upgrade

Macrium free upgrade

Hello Forum,
As you already know, I have installed Macrium reflect free version, it is 6.1.1000 version.
Today while opening the program, got a pop-up message, there is an upgrade to 6.1.1023, if I download it while the program is open, will it update automatically or download and re-install it, will it be still free ?
If I upgrade the program, have to make a new rescue CD ?
Appreciate answers

The answer to your question is Yes, it will download & update your current version & Yes it will be free.

After the update has downloaded it will probably close Macrium, install the update & then reopen Macrium again with the new update installed.

You should not have to make a new rescue CD, but after installing the update & making a new back up, you can test it just to make sure.

Your new Macrium will still be free. It is just an updated Free Version. No need to worry about it. It happens every once in a while.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,

It did, but I had no mouse function to move the curser to NEXT. What did I do wrong and how to I correct it? I tried to move...
