    Version: Macrium Reflect Free 5.3 build 7220

    Pros

    Cons

    A bid of needless jargon
    Major bug with Sharepoint/VSS

    Summary

    Makes backing up needlessly confusing for Win7 users
    Major bug with Sharepoint/VSS
    AOMEI is perfect and even lets you not use VSS if youu choose

    "excellent product"

    December 2, 2014  |   By pfeldman

    Version: Macrium Reflect Free 5.3 build 7220

    Pros

    1. One can clone a disk without taking it offline.
    2. The user interface is simple and intuitive.
    3. I can clone a 2 TB drive in less than 3 hours.

    Cons

    So far I haven't encountered any problems with this software, but I've only been using it for one month. I will update the review if I do encounter any issues.

    Summary

    Rather than summarizing the information above, I'd like to compare Macrium Reflect with some of the other backup/cloning software packages that I tried before settling on Reflect:

    - Clonezilla: I was never able to make this software work. Error messages were useless gibberish.

    - Acronis True Image 2014 free and paid versions: Acronis True Image worked on some Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers but not on others. And, when it did work, it was often slow to the point of unusability, e.g., when cloning a disk, it
    would sometimes report that it was 10 percent done after running for over 12
    hours. When I contacted Acronis Technical Support about this, they denied that
    I had a paid license and refused to provide support.

    - XXCLONE-Home: If one clones a bootable drive, the clone is not bootable.

    - EaseUS Todo backup: I was never able to make this work.
