Macrium Reflect

CNET Editors' review

Macrium Reflect is a program that offers external backup capabilities. It worked very well for us, but novice users might be a little lost with some of the more detailed file settings.

)

The user interface uses colorful command buttons and tabs for easy navigation. We did find a misspelling, which for a paid program, is a pet peeve of ours. But beyond that, we found it extremely easy to add files using the built-in wizard. From there, we were able to select the file types to include or exclude, as well as select the backup location, including a hard disk, network folder, or CD/DVD. As soon as we gave it our permission to do so, the program successfully backed up our selected files to our USB. Likewise, we were able to create a backup image of a hard disk and save it to a DVD. It took a little longer than our first test, but was successful all the same. The program includes a scheduling feature, which simplifies the process even further for the user. The VBScript File and MS-DOS Batch Files generation features might be a little more involved for novices, but the rest of the program's feature are pretty straightforward.

Macrium Reflect comes with an extensive Help menu, and a sufficient 30-day trial period. Despite a few involved features, this backup program reliable performance will appeal to all user levels.

    "Good software"

    May 29, 2011  |   By jondaman21

    Version: Macrium Reflect 4.2 build 3582

    Pros

    Works well... haven't had any serious issues

    Cons

    Had an issue where copying many files off of images would cause ridiculous memory usage (not sure if fixed but accessing images was improved so that privileged files in NTFS can now be read easily, so this doesn't come up anymore).

    Summary

    This software works well. I did (at least) one full restore and have, many times, restored files from older images. I feel the software is solidly written. The application is resource friendly while backing up in the background. I would recommend it.

    "Fantastic!"

    May 27, 2011  |   By VocalObserver

    Version: Macrium Reflect 4.2 build 3582

    Pros

    I just deleted some system files that basically killed my work computer. I spent about 10 minutes trouble-shooting before I remembered that I have a nightly file backup set.

    I restored from last nights backup and I am up and running within 10 mins!

    Cons

    Intermediate knowledge needed to setup scheduled backups. There are some nice features for diverse types of backups that may take a little bit of time to play with, but nothing that a daily computer user can't figure out.

    Summary

    Great product. Paid for itself within the first 2 weeks of purchasing it. I have a DROBO setup that mirrors my hard drives, and I have Macrium Reflect setup for nightly image & file backups.

    Very easy and reliable backup software coupled with a super easy raid-type hardware = WINNING!

    I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND this software!
