Editors' Review

Macrium Reflect is a complete solution for backing up your entire system to ensure that you don't lose any important work no matter what happens. With a thorough Help document and convenient walkthrough, this app is a good option for beginners as well as more experienced users.


Strategy development: This app doesn't just guide you through the process of creating backups. In fact, it actually helps you come up with a strategy for making the types of backups that are most appropriate for you. The manual clearly explains the types of options available through the program, and the in-app walkthrough contains easy-to-follow instructions to help you accomplish any task.

Backup options: You can create several kinds of backups through this program. To begin with, most people will choose a Full Backup, which includes all partitions, files, and folders. After that, however, you'll have the choice of following up with either Incremental Backups or Differential Backups, and the right option for you will depend on your own particular circumstances. You can also choose a location to store your backup, and this could be anything from a network folder to an external drive or CD/DVD.


Learning curve: It can take some time to get familiar enough with this program to use it to its maximum effectiveness, especially if you're a relatively inexperienced user. But all of the resources you need are available, as long as you're willing to devote the time to studying them, and the payoff is worth it in the long run.

Bottom Line

Macrium Reflect is a high-quality program for backing up all essential information on your computer. It offers great support and backup options, and while it can take some time to learn, you definitely get a lot out of the time you invest.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Macrium Reflect 5.3 build 7170.
