    Thank you for contacting us.
    I note against your e-mail address you have four version 7 Home edition licenses. Your latest license purchase was in April 2020. These licenses are perpetual licenses, I will clarify these four licenses:

    When you purchase the Macrium Reflect Home editions the licenses are perpetual you have the software for life. The only exception would be if we brought out a new version 8 at some some in the future and you upgraded in which case your version 7 license key would be replaced by the version 8 license key. You would not have to upgrade if you do not want to.

    When you purchase the Home edition you get one year's Essentials e-mail support, at the end of one year you can continue to get support by browsing the Knowledgebase and posting questions in the Forum. Many questions posted in the Forum are answered by the same people that answer e-mail questions. Updates from version 7.0.xxxx to 7.x.xxxx are free and upgrades from version 7.x to 8.x are chargeable but with an upgrade discount, see also note below (there no date for a version 8 release but it is expected to be during the first quarter of 2021)

    Each license key for Macrium Reflect is for use on one computer but you are allowed to transfer the license key to another computer for legitimate upgrade and replacement purposes. You can purchase one or more single licenses, there is also a version 7 Home edition 4 pack which gives 4 licenses for the price of 2.

    Note that purchases after 15th November 2020 will be entitled to a free upgrade to version 8.

    Hope this helps and clarifies





    I reckon so.

    See the pic above... I just downloaded it.


    WHEN I was still on version 7.3.5365 check for updates showed me version 7's... so did the MR site.
    As soon as I updated to the latest v 7.3.5854 and rebooted ...the site started showing me v 8.0.5xxx
    Ghot, have you run it yet? It's a stub installer. Does it DL 7 or 8? I know what the properties say in the stub. Does it actually DL V8? Not V7?

    NOW... the website should show you Macrium Reflect 8.0.xxxx

    Macrium Software | Reflect 8 Free


    From your link, it specifically says that Free is still v7. It goes on to say 'why not try the v8 Trial?' but points out that at the end of the 30-day trial it reverts to Free - specifically to v7 Free.

    Macrium (my bold) said:
    Are you looking for free backup, free cloning, or free disk imaging software? Reflect 7 Free is the best no-cost solution on the market. Why does Macrium offer such a feature-rich and powerful product for absolutely nothing? Because we believe the safety and security of your data should be available to everyone. Plus, we’re confident you’ll see just how reliable and well-developed our software is, you won’t want to miss out on any of our amazing features.

    But before you jump straight to the free option, why not check out Reflect 8 Home? Our 30-day trial of Reflect 8 Home is the ideal way to explore what we have to offer with absolutely no risk. If for whatever reason you decide it isn’t right for you, any backups you create during the trial will still be accessible as the software reverts to Reflect 7 Free.

    I just right clicked the DLFH or w/e and IT said version 8.0.5902

    The main point is that when I google Macrium Reflect I see this....

    I would assume that downloader version 8.0.5902 is going to download MR v 8.0.5902 or 03

    I can't test that... it downloads and installs, automatically.


    /edit

    I unchecked the install immediately and it downloaded this...

    ...and I already have the paid version 8.0.5903 installed. Weird.

    @f14tomcat I keep getting v7 myself and have tried the stub installer multiple times over the last couple of hours. Sooner or later Macrium will fix it but at least I know the EXE download from MajorGeeks works.

    When I talked to them on the phone...they DID say they were still working out a few bugs.


    I just tried to call them again, and tell them their website said it was downloading v8, but was actually downloading version 7.3.xxxx, but they are now closed. :/



    @IownAmoneyPit

    My bad. I guess until they get it fixed... it'll have to be MajorGeeks. :/

    Thanks for the clarification @Ghot at least there is more than 1 way to get v8 while bugs get squashed.
