Editors' Review

Macrium Reflect Free Edition allows you to back up your entire computer and schedule backups. For a free program, you get incredibly powerful software that allows you to create effective backups.


Beginner accessible interface: Creating backups is something that is often overlooked by a new computer user. In addition, many of the programs that allow you to perform this task seem overly complex. Macrium is easy to understand, even for someone who hasn't used backup software before.

Scheduling feature: Creating a backup is a resource-intensive and time-consuming process. It is not really the sort of thing that you want to have happening while you're trying to use the computer. However, the scheduling feature allows you to schedule a backup for the middle of the night or some other time when you don't need the machine for other reasons.

Restoration functionality: Restoring from a Macrium Reflect backup worked flawlessly. No problems were detected, and everything was restored properly when the backup was created.

Cloning and imaging: You can use the software to either clone or image your hard drive. The imaging process greatly reduces the space required for a backup.


Cumbersome installation: The program installs through a download client and requires a very large download to complete. The client was slow and resource intensive. It seems there could likely be a better way to deliver the software.

Bottom Line

Creating a good, reliable backup should be part of everyone's computing practices. This free software provides you with an affordable way to do that, even if you're not a computer expert. The backup file is compressed to a reasonable size and is easy to restore from.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 7.1.2885
  • Missing files reported when mounting backups. When mounting backup files, if required files are missing from the backup set then the original file names are now listed in the error message box.
  • Synthetic Full re-started backup sets. If all incremental images are deleted from a backup set with a synthetic full image, and the set is 're-started' by creating another Incremental then the error 'Invalid Parameter' would occur when mounting the Incremental image file. Additionally, a restore of this Incremental may result in the Full being restored. This has been resolved.
  • ReDeploy improvements for NVMe host controllers. When migrating a system to an NVMe booting device, ReDeploy required the user to specify vendor drivers for this hardware, even when the target OS has native support. This has been resolved. We recommend creating fresh Windows PE rescue media after updating.
  • Macrium viBoot. When running on systems configured in any language other than English, Macrium viBoot would sometimes fail to display information about virtual machines. This has been resolved.
