Macrium Reflect, by Paramount Software UK Ltd is a beautifully done product that's a full-featured solution for keeping your computer backed up. The program has everything you need including a very handy scheduling function. Macrium Reflect has some innovative features that I really liked. For example, it allows you to save all your backup set definitions in XML format. Cool. Another really cool feature lets you create a rescue CD. That's a powerful feature because if your computer won't boot you can use the CD and then restore your data. Nicely done.

Macrium Reflect lets you backup your computer files or you can create complete images of your hard drive. Utilizing images you can easily restore data to an existing hard drive or put all your data on a new hard drive. Slick. Macrium Reflect also uses multiple levels of compression so your backups can take less space. The program is amazingly easy-to-use and is perfect for users with all levels of experience.

In testing out Macrium Reflect I found it to be quite fast, even when creating an image file of my drive C. I found that you can replace, or restore if you will, just one file if you want with no hassle at all. It handles full backups as well as incremental and differential versions. Another really cool feature is the ability to create a virtual drive that you can then browse with a file manager. So, for example, I put an image of my drive D over on drive P and was able to just copy files back to drive C. Excellent. I'm so impressed with Macrium Reflect that I'm not only making it a Pick, but a Dr. File Finder Favorite as well. You owe it to yourself to try this product out. I recommend it!
