Macrium Reflect

Macrium Reflect is one of the easiest pieces of backup software I could ever hope to use. Right from the installation, everything was clear and concise and nothing extra was needed of me to be able to use the program effectively.

Installation is just a matter of following a simple wizard that guides you through the whole process, which was extremely quick. The speed of this product is as big of a selling point to me as the ease of use. The whole product was installed, configured, and ready to use in under 5 minutes! Being a busy IT administrator I can’t express enough how brilliant this is, as it allows my time to be spent on more pressing matters, rather than sitting waiting for an installation to complete.

Although the program can be very easy to use in its simplest form, with great results, it can also be used with complex scripts to allow for a more satisfactory outcome for anyone wanting to use the software in such a way. This makes the software both great for novices and seasoned professionals alike. There a many great features in this software, that can be configured without an in depth knowledge of backup solutions required, such as email notifications, creating schedules, and rotating backup destinations, as well as many more.

Overall I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with Macrium Reflect, as it exceeded my expectation on all fronts. It doesn’t feel bloated, and at no point was I overwhelmed with the software and its functions. I was able to clone a disk, and have it fully up and running in less than an hour, which is amazing as upon a disk failure in a machine/servers, it could be up and running again in such a short amount of time.
