Software Update: Macrium Reflect 7.2.4594

Paramount Software has released an update to Macrium Reflect. This program can create a disk image of a partition or hard disk. In addition to the free version, there are also paid performances those different extras such as being able to do a file backup or an incremental backup, encryption, and restoring a backup to different hardware than it was created on.

From version 7.1 the free version may now also be used in commercial environments. There is also Image Guardian, which protects backup files from unauthorized modifications, improvements have been made to virtual images, and several bugs have been fixed. The following changes and improvements have also been made in this release:

Bug fixes and improvements

  • A small number of customers reported that they could not mount Macrium Reflect images after dismounting a previously mounted image. This has been resolved.
  • We’ve improved the ability for Reflect to detect bootable image files and enable the ‘Boot Image’ functionality in Reflect.
  • Automatic system restores for BitLocker encrypted system volumes could perform a ‘BitLocker Removal’ restore instead of the expected ‘BitLocker Live’ restore. This has been resolved.
  • The ‘Run Once a Day’ option when generating PowerShell and VBScript source files didn’t behave as expected for scheduled tasks using the SYSTEM account. This has been resolved.
  • The ‘Verify File System’ default image option was not honored if unchecked for scheduled images running using the SYSTEM account. This has been resolved.

Rescue Media Builder

  • The default location for PE files has been moved back to $PROGRAMDATA$MacriumReflect’.
  • On Windows 7, when building Windows PE rescue media, RMBuilder will now use the Dism.exe corresponding to the wim, rather than the Dism.exe from the WAIK.
  • On Windows XP, the radio button labels for boot menu options would sometimes be truncated. This has been resolved.
  • If the “override WinPE compatible drivers” checkbox was unchecked, custom USB drivers would sometimes not be included into the rescue media. This has been resolved.
  • If there was more than one version of the Windows ADK installed, RMBuilder would not copy required files from either installed ADK, and would instead prompt for a download. This has been resolved
