Introduction

Macrium Reflect v7 includes powerful industry leading technologies to reduce image creation time using 'Changed Block Tracking' (CBT). v7 also includes Macrium viBoot 'instant virtualisation' that enables creation of a Hyper-V Virtual Machine with just a couple of clicks.

The user interface changes from v6 have been kept minimal and upgrading from v6 will be an easy process.

The main new features are listed below:

 Changed Block Tracking (CBT)

Macrium Reflect Changed Block Tracker (MRCBT) reduces the amount of time it takes to perform incremental and differential images by monitoring the changes to an NTFS formatted volume in real-time. This is especially relevant when a file system contains very large files, such as virtual hard disk (VHD) files, where speed improvements are significant and can reduce the Incremental image time from hours to minutes or even seconds. 

Note: CBT is not available for Windows XP or Server 2003.

See here for more information on CBT

 Macrium viBoot

Macrium viBoot enables you, to instantly create, start and manage Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines using one or more Macrium Reflect image files as the basis of the virtual machine storage sub-system.

Note: viBoot only supports Microsoft’s Hyper-V running on a minimum of Windows 8.0 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Task Scheduler 2.0

This a 'behind the scenes'  improvement over the Task Scheduler 1.0 implementation in Macrium Reflect v6.0 and overcomes the issues caused by problems with a Windows 10 Anniversary Update bug
