Macrium Reflect 8 Free is now available

Paramount Software UK Limited released commercial editions of Macrium Reflect 8 some time ago. The free version, Macrium Reflect 8 Free, is now also available.

Macrium Reflect 8 Free is compatible with all versions and editions of Windows, starting with Windows Vista 64-bit on the client side and Windows Server 2008 64-bit on the server side.

Existing installations may be upgraded to the new version of Macrium Reflect 8 Free. Previously created images, backup definitions and settings are compatible with Macrium Reflect 7 according to the developer.

Downloads are provided on the developer site, but an email address is required before the download becomes available. A better option is to download the installer from a site like Softonic, as it requires no handing out of one of your email addresses.

Note: Macrium Reflect 7 Free will be supported until March 2022. The software will continue to work after support ends but new updates won’t be released anymore for it.

Here are the main new features of Macrium Reflect Free 8:

  • Restore has been renamed to Existing Backups. New functionality, such as the ability to sort files or view them in context of the backup set, have been added. Backed up files can be viewed in tree or flat list view in the new interface. Backup logs can also be viewed directly now for particular backup files (by right-clicking on the file and selecting View Backup Logs). The folder that contains the backup can also be opened directly now using the context menu.
  • Backup file name functionality improvements. New dynamic file names for backups are available. All it takes is to type { at the end of the file name edit field, or press the {-button to display the options. The variables support adding the name of the PC or username, domain, date, or technical backup information, such as the compression method or use of AES.
  • Support for the cloning and imaging of removable media.
  • Support for the exFAT file system.
  • Support for creating WinPE11 rescue media on Windows 11 devices.
  • German, Japanese, French and Russian localized versions are now available. Select Other Tasks > Edit Defaults and Settings > Advanced Settings > Language to switch to a different display language in the backup application.
