    Installed the wrong edition of Macrium Reflect


    hi,

    By accident the trial one month edition was installed. I wanted the free edition and still want. Is there a way to undo and make the trial edition free or do I have to download and install again? The whole process took quite a while on my laptop so, if possible, I would like to avoid doing it again

    Don't think so. You have to go back and reinstall the free edition. Just try installing the free edition over the top of what you have now. The majority of setup time is downloading the Windows PE files to create the rescue drive with (if you don't opt out of that in the setup settings). Since those files would already be there, it's possible they won't download again.

    It only downloads winpe files if it needs to.

    If you uninstall trial version, it asks you if you want to keep winpe files iirc.

    a big thank you


    hi again,

    thanx all you guys, NavyLCDR, Guru, Dalchina, Plankton, cereberus and all others, not mentioned but not forgotten, on the Tenforums team who have contributed to solving my problems. Thanx for taking the trouble of answering all my newbie questions and explaining them to me in such an easily perceptible manner. I really dont know what I should have done without your help. Because of you I really feel I am making progress in understanding Windows 10 fall creator edition/version and how to set up a proper imaging schedule.. Thanx a hundred.

    ps

    I might return on the forums before soon. Hope you dont mind. If you do, just ignore me, but I wish you dont. By the way, what is IMO short for? (in my opinion?)
