Paramount Software has released a new version of Macrium Reflect. With this program a disk image of a partition or hard disk can be created. In addition to the free version, there are also paid performances those different extras such as being able to perform a file backup or an incremental backup, encryption, and restore the backup to hardware other than the one on which it was created. In version 8.0.6979, the following changes and improvements have been made:


  • We’ve added Hungarian localization to Macrium Reflect and improved the coverage of translated strings.

Macrium Image Guardian

  • The Macrium Image Guardian Settings dialog box could crash if a storage device returned a malformed Device Name. This has been resolved.
  • The check boxes and icons in the Volumes tab of the Macrium Image Guardian Settings dialog box did not display correctly at some DPI levels. This has been resolved.


  • When downloading Windows PE 5.0, the Rescue Media Builder would sometimes fail to download the last 15MB. This has been resolved.


  • Canceling a clone operation and selecting ‘No’ to the cancel request would leave the operation in Paused state. This has been resolved.


  • The Shutdown/Reboot selection for automatic restores in the PE rescue media would not be honored. This has been resolved.

File and Folder Backup

  • An incorrect ‘Cannot replace file…’ error could be shown when restoring a file from a File and Folder backup to a different location. This has been resolved.

Backup Completion Emails

  • Email parameters. The {WINVER} parameter now also appends Window’s update build revision(UBR) number.
  • We’ve added the following parameters:
    {BACKUPSTATUS} – Backup completion status
    {BACKUPCOMMENT} – Backup Comment

User interface

  • We’ve added a basic password authentication option to the Macrium Reflect user interface.
    Please see herefor more information.
  • We’ve added a new option to disable consolidation for Incremental retention.

Macrium Reflect General

  • Windows Security/Defender reports warnings when Attack Surface Reduction rules are enabled. This has been resolved.
  • When running in the Rescue environment, the toolbar button to display loading errors in the Existing Backups tab was hidden. This has been resolved.
  • After canceling a split-file backup that had progressed to the last file, Reflect could prompt for a new backup destination. This has been resolved.
  • In some instances, automatic image verification could result in the system becoming unresponsive during verification. This has been resolved.
  • We’ve improved the resizing of the Image View comments column, and the limitation on comment length displayed has been removed.
  • Reflect could crash when downloading language file with no Internet connection. This has been resolved.
  • An incorrect warning message, ‘File is encrypted and supplied password is incorrect’, could be shown in backup logs if consolidation was disabled using the registry setting. This has been resolved.


  • Various other minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.
