Software update: Macrium Reflect 7.2.3811




Paramount Software has released version 7.2 of Macrium Reflect. With this program a disk image of a partition or hard disk can be created. In addition to the free version, there are also paid versions that offer various extras , such as being able to make a file backup or incremental backup, encryption and restoring a back-up to hardware other than that on which it was created.

From version 7.1 , the free version is no longer only for private use, but can now also be used in commercial environments. Furthermore, there is Image Guardian , which has to protect backup files against unauthorized modifications, improvements have been made with regard to virtual images and several problems have been solved. In version 7.2, the following improvements have been made:

New Features
New Rescue Media builder includes Windows RE with WiFi Support
We’ve added a Rescue Media Builder (RMBuilder) application with support for Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) as well as the existing PE environments supported by Reflect 7.1 and earlier. WinRE supports WiFi and is available on most Windows installs without any further downloads.
New Changed Block Tracker driver with support for Windows Restart Persistence
We’ve created a new Changed Block Tracker (CBT) driver that automatically upgrades the previous version when you install v7.2 with the CBT feature enabled ….
New Macrium Image Guardian driver with additional features and streamlined operation
MIG is now Windows kernel only !. Our Macrium Image Guardian (MIG) feature has improved the dependency on Windows service and we have added popup notifications when a blocking event occurs. The popup shows blocking activity as it happens.
The Free Edition can now automatically ‘convert’ to a Trial in the Free Edition
We realize that many of our Free Edition users are unaware that there are additional features available in Macrium Reflect. All ‘premium’ features, such as Image Guardian, Changed Bock Tracker, Incremental Images, Encryption, etc. can now be activated and trialed for 30 days. After 30 days a further 7 day extension is offered. Ongoing functionality Macium Reflect reverts to the Free Edition and Premium features will no-longer be available. We’ve tried to make this as seamless and unobtrusive as possible without losing any functionality of Macrium Reflect Free.

Macrium Reflect update notifications and downloads can now happen in the background
Recent history has shown that the current method of requiring Macrium is to be ineffective. We’ve added a systray icon in Window notification area to alert when an update is available to Macrium Reflect.

New Warning and Canceled backup completion results
We also added the option for email notifications on Warnings as well as the existing Success and Failure results
See: Backup completion status
Minor Enhancements
New – mounting incomplete backup sets
New – Backup monitoring restriction
The default for password protection is now AES 128 Bit.
The ‘Delete’ functionality in Reflect is now available when ‘Browse for an image file’ is selected.
Bug fixes
Backup Running Mutex
To prevent multiple backups running at the same time and conflicting with VSS and I / O operations on the source. Simultaneous backup backups are ‘queued’ and run asynchronously. With v7.1 and earlier the Backup Running Mutex, that prevents other backups from running. was held open while the backup dialog was open, even if the backup had finished. This could lead to a ‘stall’ in sheduled tasks if and interactive backup was not closed at the end. This has now been corrected and the next backup will start as soon as the current backup has completed.
ReflectMonitor improvements
ReflectMonitor is a stand-alone exe that communicates via IPC to the running. We have made the integration to prevent some of the progress bars and other glitches that previuosly existed.
Server Plus – Large Exchange Backups
Server Plus copies backup data to a 3TB virtual NTFS file system. Some customers have experienced backup failure if the size of the backup data exceeds 3TB. We have now made the virtual file system size dynamically based on the amount of data and size of the volume to overcome this problem. We’ve also improved the problem of troubleshooting problems.
BitLocker drive without a drive letter
On systems with unlocked BitLocker drives that are not a drive letter, a ‘BitLocker Live Restore’ would always perform a ‘Full Copy’ restore rather than a ‘Rapid Delta Restore (RDR)’. This has been resolved.
