Macrium Reflect Backup Program
« on: June 16, 2008, 02:21:18 PM »
There is an excellent deal, apparently, on GAOTD this monday : a file backup  + diskimaging program, which includes Linux Recovery CD, BartCD Plugin and WinPE ($5 extra) recovery CD.  It's called Macrium Reflect.  It looks like Acronis, in its principle, with many interesting features.

I suggest you download it and activate it ASAP.

hmm.. this also came up on ShellCity.net today. apparently there's a free edition as well. but after looking at the feature comparison, i think it's better to watch out for this on a GAOTD re-run. ;)

I finally uninstalled this app : every two times or so, the application hang while imaging my disk.  My PC even froze while using the WinPE recovery disk, and last time one of my partitions was corrupted, it took me quite some time to fix it.

Too bad since it really looked promising and full of good ideas.

Glad to read that.  My problems started when I tried to perform a diff. image.  Every two times my PC would froze, I had to force power down, with damages on the filesystem !

I use it for backups,  but don't know yet if it actually will rescue anything.

However, "tomorrow", Tuesday 16 Sept, it is on Bits du Jour at half the normal price, $20 instead of €30...
