    Hi cereberus,

    .I use indeed the free edition (7.2) and I created a rescue cd with the latest download.

    I can in the near future better continue to use 7.1 (it's restored on my laptop) and with the rescue cd of 7.1 I will not have this serendipity as you explain.

    Thanks.

    Why worry - you are getting a temporary benefit. At next Reflect upgrade, you will be ack to normal full restores.

    I've done a restore action (copy selected parts) of a full image (the word full is indicated on the WINPE reflect screen near the image) from an external portable harddisk to an ssd on my laptop.
    The image is created with reflect 7.1; the restore is done with reflect 7.2 .
    During the restore (saving partition of c:\) I saw the message "looking for changes".
    The restore (of 4 partitions: 3 very small (Mb) and c:\ 80Gbyte) ended successfull in 5 minutes.

    Did I do something wrong?
    To me, you are fine. That "Looking for changes" is Macrium setting up it's Rapid Delta Restore. That means it's only going to restore back (write) the sectors that have changed since the backup. Macrium uses a sector backup and restore, without regard to the actual files/folders or size. If a sector was changed, it will be restored, otherwise, no. It's perfectly normal. I get restores of a 18GB image in about 2-3 minutes. It's doing what it's supposed to do. You did nothing wrong, and everything right!

    As MR (with RDR option) does sector backup/restore does this mean it removes also virusses and malware if the restore image does not contain malware/virus?

    yes! Image Guardian protects the backups, it should always be enabled. And the backups kept offline.

    Even without the RDR, that holds true.

    Macrium Free build 7.2 4063 just quit working for me, it could no longer find my backups. I did enjoy the rapid restore feature of this build but I had to uninstall it and reinstall build 3957 to get Macrium to work again.

    Is this because your 30 day trial ended, or some other reason?

    As I reported earlier, there is a bug in the boot drive created that it has the main Home features activated by error, and no trial limit.

    SSo I believe OP has a different issue.

    Anyway, you can always navigate to your backups manually.
