Anyone using Macrium Reflect Free disk imaging software ?

Hi Guys,

Anyone here using Macrium Reflect Free disk imaging software ?

If yes i have a simple question. The free version works perfectly ok for my needs on windows xp 32bit.

I was wondering if after a period of time the free version may not work and i will be left in the dark with no way to restore my images. Ive tested it every way in and out and its doing simple backups and restores perfectly. Now i am just worried if after a year or two i need to restore an image and then it gives me a message saying i need to buy something or even worse that the program expired and wont work anymore. I know NORTON GHOST 14 etc never expires as its a one time product which doesn't need any renewal.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I use Macrium Reflect Free for some imaging. Ver 505154. It's at least a year old. Works perfectly!

No. Oldest restore I ever did was about three months.

I have the Professional version which I use pretty much exclusively for system imaging. I have restored images up to 6 mos old without issue.

Thanks Miles.

Im using the free version. Was just wondering if the free version might give some surprise message a year down the line when we want to do a restore.
