Windows 10: New Macrium Reflect Updates Solved

    New update!

    What's New v7.1.2885 - 1st February 2018


    • Missing files reported when mounting backups
      When mounting backup files, if required files are missing from the backup set then the original file names are now listed in the error message box.



    Bug Fixes

    • Synthetic Full re-started backup sets
      If all incremental images are deleted from a backup set with a synthetic full image, and the set is 're-started' by creating another Incremental then the error 'Invalid Parameter' would occur when mounting the Incremental image file. Additionally, a restore of this Incremental may result in the Full being restored. This has been resolved.


    • ReDeploy improvements for NVMe host controllers
      When migrating a system to an NVMe booting device, ReDeploy required the user to specify vendor drivers for this hardware, even when the target OS has native support. This has been resolved.

      We recommend creating fresh Windows PE rescue media after updating.




    • Macrium viBoot
      When running on systems that were configured in any language other than English, Macrium viBoot would sometimes fail to display information about virtual machines. This has been resolved
    Thanks for the heads up Cliff :)

    Have any Macrium Home Users ever used Synthetic Full backup.

    Video explaining it for those who do not know what it is?
    I gave it a trial on a small daily file & folder backup over a period of several months on Windows 7. Seems to work as advertised. I don't like using incrementals except in special circumstances so I wouldn't recommend it.

    Yeah - even so, I feel incrementals forever seems to be the safer option as base Full image is never touched.

    To me it seems a good strategy could be to use "incrementals for ever" with say 7 daily incrementals, but also do a weekly differential backup, doing a new full say monthly. Really depends hiw much granularity you require.

    I do a weekly full and daily differentials. My daily differentials are timed with Redmond in mind (17:00), so I will do an incremental after any Windows update to have a before and after.

    The whole idea behind incrementals for ever or synthetic fulls is that you do not need to keep doing full backups. For my PC, I keep the C drive lean and mean so doing so is rather a waste of time as a full backup only takes 10 minutes. I guess those tools are more geared for the corpy market.

    Slow HDDs as well. That's why I was looking at it at the time but I chickened out of full implementation.

    I have an incrementals forever setup for some things. I also use File & Folder Backup for some stuff, as I remember reading somewhere, that if you have any files over 4GB, that's how you recover them (not images).
