4 comments on “Setting Up Macrium Reflect Free (Webinar #2)”

  1. The best backup software in my opinion is AOMEI Backupper Standard free edition because it is easy
    to use and does as good a job as Macrium Reflect Free. AOMEI is the ideal program for new people at backing up.

    • AOEMI Backupper is great. We reviewed AOMEI when we were looking for an alternative to Macrium reflect, specifically a free program which allowed incremental backup. EaseUS squeaked by in a photo finish. Their software was of the same quality the decision was mainly based on the fact that the EaseUS website had better English and therefore was a bit easier to understand and we had a bit of trouble with the name, Backupper. Otherwise, it’s a great choice.

  2. After setting up the scheduled backup, do I have to remember to leave the Macrium Reflect program running in order for the backup to start at 4 am?
