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. 

Macrium viBoot: this built-in feature allows users to instantly create, start and manage Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines. This is done using one or more Macrium Reflect image files as the basis of the virtual machine storage sub-system.

Thank you for the opportunity!

I am currently using Lazesoft Recovery Suite Professional, no complaints. But I have heard that Macrium's registered versions are quicker to restore and backup software than what I am currently using. It would be nice to find out if that is so. 

Thanks again!

Thanks for the giveaway.
Currently for backups I use a program Ashampoo Backup Pro 10, but this software is not very easy to backup and I want to switch to Macrium Reflect because it's popular backup tool that simplifies the time consuming task of creating backups in a few mouse clicks

Opportunities that I like:

- Simple user interface.
- Create disk images while using the operating system Windows.
- Macrium Reflect is able to create disk images using VSS, plus you get a high compression ratio and fast processing speed.
- Able to create disk images while using the operating system Windows, no more having to restart the computer.
