Windows 10: does the free version of macrium reflect enough ?
does the free version of macrium reflect enough ?
to create an image of my ssd which contain my windows 10 all of my programs all of my data and my images etc
so I can backup and restore without the need to reinstall everything
or the paid home version is better ?
Scorched CPU Theory
The free version is enough for most.
Here is a chart with what the free version offers vs the paid: Macrium Reflect Free
The free version is perfectly adequate for your needs. The main difference between the free and paid version is that you can only create differential backups (changes since last full backup) whereas paid version does incremental backups as well (changes since last incremental backup). Incremental backups are more space efficient but for most home users that is no big deal.
Additionally paid versons can restore to different hardware etc. Rarely needed in home environment, and you can achieve same end for free using native sysprep commands - just a bit harder to do.
Of course if you buy the paid version you are entitled to customer support from Macrium. Again rarely an issue as Macrium is so reliable.
Also don't forget you cannot do command execution with the free version.
I'm using macrium reflect free V6 6.1.1225
and there is a new version 6.1.1311
will my old backups work if I update it ?
also which is better uninstall macrium and download the new version
or just update ?
