    If you are talking about the message telling you there is an update to the software, it can be turned off here.

    Help>Configure Update

    Well, I never knew you could do it that way, I always go to Other Tasks > Edit Defaults...

    I strongly advise you update as soon as one becomes available. Macrium are very good at fixing issues reported by users, and failure to update means you may find you cannot restore an image when it is required which defeats point of backup.

    I agree and suggest the same.

    I would want to know when an important program such as Macrium has an update.

    You already get the prompt now with the change log.
    So, we already do know.

    But the OP wants to not get any prompt (nag) and not update until he/she decides when they want to update.

    I own a 4-pack license, plus I was given a Reflect server license my Macrium for my all the tests I have been conducting.

    I had a post deleted before because I suggested why some people choose not to update.
    But, I won't mention it again.

    Hi folks
    Updates don't take place very often but usually when they ARE announced it's usually because they are genuinely needed.

    Having a reliable backup (and even more importantly - a reliable RESTORE) is probably the most important piece of software one should have on a computer -- usually user data is far more important than the computer itself -- even the free version of macrium can restore BY DATA from an image -- just mount the image and you can see all the data files.

    However if the user wants to take the risk that's up to him / her --- I certainly wouldn't like to do business with any body operating like that where data could be lost !!!. Previous posters have given solution of how to turn reminders off -- but I really would suggest that since the product is only updated when it's absolutely necessary it just seems totally BONKERS to me not to do it. !!!

    Cheers
