Macrium Reflect


#1
When I was trying to install Macrium Reflect, my antivirus canceled the install and counted it as a threat.

Does anyone know why?

I downloaded it from CNET, and my antivirus is Norton Internet Security Online which is provided by my ISP.

I do not trust any downloads from Cnet, download from Major Geeks instead and then custom install to avoid installing any crap.
Download Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - MajorGeeks

If still having problems, probably a false positive from Norton, temporarily disable Norton then install and check for alerts when using Macrium.

There is no concerns downloading Macrium Reflect from CNET. The download is initially a sort of small download selector from Macrium. You can then select various downloads for the Free version, 64 bit, 32 bit, WinPE components etc.

Whilst the free version of Macrium Reflect does a good job at doing an Image. The Rescue Boot discs/USB keys are hard to get to work, both versions, the Win PE and the Linux based ones. You have to test them. In my case neither worked at first, and only after many tries adding drivers, got the Win PE one working. The Linux based one still is not working.

Well, I downloaded it from a different site and Norton still looked at it as a threat.

I've got it installed. I just need someone to teach me how to use it.
Here's is the link for the user manual: Macrium User Manual
Just read up about Backup, Restore and how to create a Rescue Disk (using CD or USB).
It does not matter what Version as long as it's 5.X.XXXX. All procedures will be the same.
For basic Backup/Restore. Free Version is adequate. Some Features will not be available with free version and will be noted as info in the user manual under each title as shown below:
2015-05-05_10-14-58.png

Here's a short video on how to backup. I made it using Windows 10 but it is the same for previous versions of Windows including Windows 8. The procedure is exactly the same.
