  1. Need Opinions: Macrium Reflect Free v6 vs. v7


    I've been using Macrium Reflect Free version 5.3 on my Windows 10 PC for a few years now. It's been a great, no-frills, disk imaging tool.

    Unfortunately, after the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (which updated my Win10 version 1809 to version 1909), Macrium Reflect 5.3 no longer works as it should. Macrium Reflect throws an Error Code = 9 and can't make a Disk Image. The Macrium folks know about this issue and it has been fixed it in the new Macrium Reflect Free v7 --- and from what I've read, it has been fixed in their version 6.3.1865, too.

    So, I need to either:
    1. update my Macrium Reflect Free to version 6.3.1865 (which I can do within the program), or
    2. install the new, Macrium Reflect Free version 7.

    I like the look (interface) and no-frills approach of MR 5.3. And I only use it for basic Disk Imaging and Restore (Full Backup, No Incrementals or Differentials). I haven't used version 6 or version 7, and I'm not sure which one would provide the same look and no-frills package that I like.

    For those of you using Macrium Reflect Free, which do you like the best: version 6 or version 7?
    And why? Are there any bugs or issues that I should be aware of?

    Thanks for your help and advice.

    How update Macrium Free V6 to v7?


    Hello,

    I am currently using Macrium free V6.3 (thanks to this site) and have decided to upgrade to V7.

    How do I do this? I went to 'Other Tasks > Check for Updates' but is says 'No Updates found'?

    Is there no way to upgrade from within Macrium Free app?

    Do I need to download V7 from Macrium web site over the top of V6?
    If so, what about my Scheduled Backup? Are they preserved?

    Would appreciate some advice?
