    Original Macrium Reflect shortcut: parameters?

    The first MR shortcuts I set up triggered a pop-up panel with a timer, an OK button, and a cancel button in it, and told me what MR was about to do. Unfortunately, there was a "Don't show this again" box on it, and I clicked it a while back. Now I'm thinking I'd like to get that pop-up back, but I can't figure out how to do that. I've generated new xml files and made new shortcuts from them, but the panel doesn't come back. The shortcut (right-click, Properties) shows the parameter sequence -e -w -full between the name of the exe and the name of the backup file. If you have a shortcut that brings up the pop-up, would you please check it for me and tell me what the parameters are in it? (I'm thinking there's probably another letter with a hyphen, like "-a" or "-x").

    Is that not in advanced options, put a check in "Display backup notification for" box and choose number of seconds?

    Doesn't seem to be. I can't find it in online help, either, though I'm still looking.

    My current shortcut -- the one that runs my configured image-making protocol with a click -- has this in the Properties>Target line: "D:\Backup\Macrium Reflect\reflect.exe" -e -w -full "D:\Backup\Disk 0 Image.xml"
    and I suspect that there was another parameter in the original shortcut that triggered the pop-up, but I can't seem to get it back, even with entirely new settings sent to a new xml file.
    Thanks for the reply, though.
    Think I'll search in the registry for a settings subkey next.

    Found it, my friend. Your suggestion sent me looking again. I was just looking at Advanced Options in the main setup panels, but I found (in the online help, at How to disable the backup notification dialog - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase
    exactly what you were telling me: I had to go to Other Tasks first, then Edit Defaults, and (THEN) Advanced Options. I had been unaware that there were Advanced Options other than the Advanced Options at the bottom left of the setup panels.
    Thanks again, and I'm marking this one Solved.
