Windows 7: Imaging with free Macrium

11 Jan 2018   #1770

W7 Ultimate SP1, LM18.3 MATE, W10 Home, #All 64 bit
Macrium Reflect 7.1 ReflectMonitor

This version has some sort of monitoring function.
ReflectMonitor is a small utility that provides backup notifications and progress for scheduled backups.
It uses "Ctrl + Alt + M" as its default keyboard shortcut.

It was causing me some concern as it was overriding, my custom shortcut in GIMP (merge layers) and opening a Macrium Reflect window.

Here is some info from Macrium:

You can turn off Macrium Reflect Service if you care to here. It's in msconfig/Non-Microsoft Services.

I'll play around with the Macrium Service setting, but I think that one only controls mounting images in Windows Explorer.

I've killed them (ReflectMonitor & ReflectUI) for now by renaming the files.
The normal interface still loads (I haven't tried creating/testing any images yet).

Back to MR v6

I'm going to reinstall MR v6.

The unwanted MR v7 services reinstall themselves when you run Macrium Reflect.
They are also broken (there's supposed to be a Notification Area icon).

Just like MS & W10, it seems that every software developer thinks they own your machine if you install their software.
