    Not sure I understand CBT but I'm deleting all inc dif back to the last full and creating a new full.
    You can check the logs to see if they were affected. I make differentials and/or incrementals every day. None of mine were affected because there was a reboot between the time each one was made and the next one ran.

    CBT is only useful in corporate environments where servers and workstations run 7/7 24/7 for years in a row.

    Macrium Reflect Free Edition

    Images created by Macrium Reflect Free Edition are not affected as Macrium Reflect Free Edition does not include the CBT driver.
    Many people on this forum use the paid version of macrium

    It's really only useful for systems that rarely get restarted as CBT resets itself on every boot so the base and the incremental/differential have to be in the same Windows session. For most home users that will rarely happen.
    Yep that's me two of these desktops run 24-7 for business

    I guess I never installed it, I don't see the option in any of my backups
    I also don't see the option to install MRCBT in my file icon so they must have pulled the option completely with the 3196 update? to be honest I don't remember ever seeing it! so maybe its only available on the business version? I started wit the free and upgraded to 5 Pro 4 LIC and have upgraded to 6 Pro then 7 home since I don't think I need to pay for the business version.
    So I clean out some space on my back up drives anyway couple of them were pretty full.

    Of course, this does not apply to the free version as it does not use CBT anyway.
    So full backups are safe> I got an email from Macrum saying not to restore any backups from the older versions but I always do full backups at least two to three times a week.

    Yes full backups are safe. The issue was only related to incrementals and differentials created using CBT.

    About Win 10 1803 and MR v.7.xx (CBT):


    With respect to Win10 1803, Reflect V7 works fine, but if you use CBT, you must be running at least 7.1.2899, because that release included an update to the CBT driver to comply with new requirements imposed by Microsoft with Win10 1803. Older Reflect versions would cause a Win10 1803 system to blue screen at boot if CBT was installed. Reflect V6 also works with Win10 1803, and to my knowledge there's no minimum release requirement since V6 didn't have CBT. (UPDATE: 6.2.1495 fixed an issue that prevented scheduled backups from running on Win10 1607 and later, and 6.3.1849 fixed a rather large security vulnerability created by the original design of that fix.)

    In terms of the "shelf life" of older Rescue Media, it was recently asked in the Macrium forums when the image file format had last changed, and Macrium's answer was that Reflect V6.1 added Delta Incremental Indexing, so if you wanted to restore images that used that feature, you would need at least that release of Reflect on your Rescue Media. If you're NOT using those, then I suppose you could go even farther back, though I'm not sure just how far. So in theory, as long as your restore scenario doesn't require any of the fixes or enhancements that get added in newer releases (e.g. ReDeploy recently added support for migrating onto NVMe SSDs), then old Rescue Media should be good for quite a while.

    I am a little dissapointed that we have still yet to see the new features promised on the Tenforum online session.

    I don't remember that tech, ever giving us a date as to when these features / New version would be released Martin. Think all he said was something like coming soon.....or in the near future. So I would think we might be getting closer now.

    The feature I am keenly awaiting is the new Rescue Media Builder. I just hope they will release it soon.
