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

Downloads are provided on the developer’s site, but an email address is required before the download is available. A better option is to download the installer from a site like Softonic, as it doesn’t require any delivery of any of your email addresses.

To note: Macrium Reflect 7 Free will be supported until March 2022. The software will continue to work after the end of support, but new updates will no longer be released for it.

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

  • The restore has been renamed to Existing Backups. New features, such as the ability to sort files or view them in the context of the backup set, have been added. Saved files can be viewed as a tree or as a flat list 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. Just type {at the end of the file name edit field or press the {button to display the options. Variables support adding PC name or user name, domain, date or technical backup information, such as compression method or use of AES.
  • Support for cloning and imaging of removable media.
  • Support for exFAT file system.
  • Support for creating WinPE11 rescue media on Windows 11 devices.
  • Localized versions in German, Japanese, French and Russian are now available. Select Other Tasks> Change Defaults and Settings> Advanced Settings> Language to change to a different display language in the backup application.
