Macrium Reflect free edition is an application designed for making disk partition backups; these backup types are commonly called image-backup and have many advantages that other do not have. A backup-image takes a snapshot of the selected disk, performing a physical backup. It has the great advantage that it can record all the files, even the hidden operating system areas.
This backup type allows restoring to a different disk if the current has been damaged. It prevents data loss and avoids having to reinstall the operating system, saving time and effort.
Usually, the backup image type takes an important amount of storage space; to solve this inconvenience, Macrium Reflec, copies only the disk sectors that contain data and also compress the backup-set to achieve a reasonable size.
The user interface looks standard and easy to understand; the operation is very simple; first of all, you must select a source partition, optionally set a compression level and the target disk where to store the resulting disk-image.
Another advantage commonly implemented in professional backup-programs is its ability to perform scheduled processes. In fact, Macrium Reflec in its free version, comes with a solid task-scheduler that allows the program to perform backups from the Windows background to a pre-defined date/time.
When is required to restore the data, it can be done with a simple procedure. It allows to restore the entire image or specific files. This operation is realized mounting the original image as a hard-disk and then using Windows Explorer you can select and copy the desired files with a few mouse-clicks.
In conclusion, our testing department recommends Macrium Reflect on its free version as an absolutely professional.
