Macrium Reflect Free Edition is a handy tool designed to create backups of your disk partitions in order to protect yourself from data loss. You can use it to restore your disks to a previous state in case of a hardware failure.

Since the data used in our daily activity is saved on the hard drive, it is possible to lose important files and documents due to hardware problems. A solution is to periodically create backups in order to recover the essential files.

This program allows you to backup the data from your hard drive to an image file that can be used to restore everything, down to the last bit. This method allows you to recover not only the documents but also the programs required for your activity.

However, creating an identical copy tends to use more disk space than required which is why Macrium Reflect can compress the file. You can also use the Intelligent sector copy feature which backs up only the used disk sectors.

The interface is easy to use and allows you to quickly select the disk that you want to back up and the location. You also have the option to analyze the partition in order to detect errors before creating the image.

Since backing up a large partition can take more than a few minutes you can automate the process by scheduling the operation. Thus, you can configure the task and allow the program to run it in the background while you are working.

If you need to only retrieve certain files from the image, the app can mount it as a virtual hard drive that you can browse in Windows Explorer. Additionally, the app can convert the image to a Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) that can be used with Windows Virtual PC.

Although casual users can find the app sufficient for their needs, network administrators and other advanced users might need additional options such as incremental backups which can be accessed by purchasing Macrium Reflect Standard Edition or other editions.
