    Weird little Macrium Reflect problem...


    OK... when I click "Existing Backups" tab at top left, in the main Macrium window, I'm not see the "File Name" of my backups on Windows 11.

    I DO see the "File Names" of my backups, on Windows 10 in the main window of Macrium Reflect. I also see the "File Names" of my backups (in Win 10 and Win 11) on the drive where I store my backups, and when using the Macrium Rescue Media.

    Where I used to see the "File Names" in the main Macrium window, while in Windows 11, I now see only the "Image ID".
    This just started happening in the last week or two.



    Main Macrium window in Windows 10...

    I can't see any way to change the column headings. I've even exported Macrium's settings (on Win 10), and imported them to Macrium on Windows 11.

    Everywhere else, including the Rescue media (Win 10 and Win 11), I can see the backup's "File Name".
    This includes the drives where I store the backups.


    For example...

    You can't change the column headings, but you can change their width, yours looks too small to show the file names. Hover between Path and Definition until you see the resize cursor appear (it's near the 'D' for definitions) then click and drag.

    I know I can change the width. The bottom-most RED square in each pic is the problem.
    The top pic has the file name as it should. The bottom pic has the Image ID which it shouldn't.
    They BOTH used to show the File Name of the backup.
    When I say File Name, I mean this... NOV 30 - 19044.1387 - No EDGE-00-00.mrimg

    When I make a backup, I always type the file name: date - Win version - why I made the backup

    Sometime in the last 2 weeks the bottom pic (Win 11), changed to Image ID??

    P.S. I only make Full backups, btw.

    You drew the red boxes on different columns in the two pics. Both your pics have the same Image ID column showing the same IDs, but you drew the box round the Path column in the first pic and the Image ID column in the second.

    Something seems to have resized your Path column to be too small to show the filenames, my screenshots show that I can resize my Path column to look like yours. Try making the Path column wider, the names should still be there.

    THAT might be the solution. The Path column isn't labeled, so I wouldn't have noticed it.
    Brb, I'm gonna get back on Win 11.

    NOW... I even know how it happened. ONE TIME I forgot to UNcheck that stupid My Backup.xml box when making the backup. And it shifted everything just enough. :/

    Thanks for the cookie, it was delicious

    The only mystery now is what changed the column width in the first place.

    Out of about 300 backups since I started using Macrium, I forgot to uncheck that box... ONCE. ROFL
    And the word "Path" is too far to the left anyway. It should be centered over the column.


    OK... now that that's fixed, I need to make a new backup, then get back on Win 10.

    I only ever saw that box the once in all the backups (lost count - could be in four figures now) I've ever done. That's because having saved it as a backup definition the once I edit the definition before running the next Full backup from it.

    I like use the Comments section to keep a Change Log.
