    .. If the number of blocks restored are significantly reduced with MCBT, I'll almost certainly leave it on but if it just reduces the time it takes Reflect to determine which blocks need to be restored, I'll probably leave it turned off...
    MRCBT helps speed up backups for a Differential or Incremental by recording in advance which blocks have changed and will need backing up. Without it Macrium has to compare the index of the full backup to the whole of the partition's MFT to determine what has changed.

    It makes no difference to the number of blocks restored, only Rapid Delta Restore can do that.

    If you buy contacts Sales and see if they have any sales on or if they are prepared to offer a discount. That is how I bought mine. On a number of occasion they have offered 20%.

    Back on Black Friday they had a 50% discount running. Maybe we see a similar sale at Christmas.
    They have a 20% off via a link on the Free version program window right now. I found out about the 50% for BF after the fact. Kind of pissed me off they never emailed customers. Maybe it was also on the program screen but since I have backups automated for in the middle of the night and have never needed to restore (knock on wood), I won't notice offers on the program running screen. I only noticed this one because I opened the program to add a new backup schedule. Grrr.

    If that's the case, MCBT won't help me because I will be restoring from Macrium Reflect Recovery rather than the running system because that is the only way malware couldn't survive. If Malware is running when the drive with back ups is mounted, that drive could be compromised. But since it sounds like MCBT was just icing for my cake, I can live without it unless its the only way that RDR can just restore changed blocks.

    For testing I intend to:

    1. Mount the drive I do backups to.
    2. Take a Reflect Incremental or Differential backup for other drives attached to the system.
    3. Dismount the drive backups are on.
    4. Run tests.
    5. Shut down the system.
    6. Boot Reflect Recovery from a thumb drive.
    7. Mount the backup drive.
    8. Do an RDR for the drives backed up in step 2.
    9. Reboot the restored system with all drives exactly like they were at the start of this process.
    Step 7 should be done before step 6 to ensure the backup drive is recognised and loaded into MR. You can probably plug and play but I've not tried it.

    Not sure if you are a Twitter user but they also make announcements there.

    I would also add Malwarebytes to your safe sender list, pretty sure I also got it in email.

    Then subscribe to this thread, lots of news.

    By the way. Paid versions of MR have ransomware protection which prevents unauthorised access to MR images on attached or networked volumes.

    Hi, Hoosier....

    You point to the latest Incremental or Differential to restore, not the base full, unless that is what you really want. During the RDR, it will restore the base full, then automatically apply the incremental/differential. Always point to the backup file (incr/diff) where you want to end up, and MR will do the rest.
    That's that I was hoping. But lazy programmers might make a customer go thru the chain manually. Good to know.

    to my "Windows 7 Home Premium (64 btits)" for "Windows Home" (next build on May,2020 )

    HumbertoH, go with Macrium Reflect. It's the best backup program around. The free version is all you really need.

    Here is a tutorial by Kari, one of our Gurus: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect

    Edit: Oops, posting a link to this tutorial, sorry.
