Bug fixes and Improvements v8.0.6036 - 14th July 2021

  • Installer
    On pre-Windows 8 systems we've improved the detection of Windows SHA-2 patches to enable installation to continue.
  • Rescue Media Builder
    • When determining what size partition to create for USB rescue media, the Rescue Media Builder will now always allocate at least 20% more space than is required for the files to ensure enough space is allocated.
    • If the Rescue Media Builder could not find enough space on a USB stick to create the rescue media, the log could report incorrect partition numbers and size requirements. This has been resolved.
    • An invalid filename for an iso file could cause the iso file path to be malformed. This has been resolved.
  • Macrium Reflect UI - General
    • We've added a Full/Diff/Inc backup type column to the Log View list.
    • The 'Type' column in the 'Definition Files' view is now sortable.
    • Disabled menu items could sometimes appear as enabled when using the light theme. This has been resolved.
    • When trying to rename an XML definition file, the ‘c’ character could not be entered. This has been resolved.
    • The mouse pointer detection zone for check-boxes in the Browse Image dialog box was too small, making them difficult to interact with. This has been resolved.
    • Under Reflect Defaults, some text labels in the Email Settings could become misaligned. This has been resolved.
  • Existing Files View
    • We've changed the icon in the list of folders for network shares that can't connect and for folders that don't exist. We've also added a 'Connect' context menu to prompt for authentication and to display an appropriate error message for local folders.
    • Intermittent connection issues could cause the list of backups in a shared folder to be empty. This has been resolved.
    • Removing the last folder in the list of files to search in the existing backups view would not refresh the backups. This has been resolved.
  • Rescue Media
    • When authenticating a network share while booted into the Rescue Media, clicking the Show Password button could cause the Rescue Media to reboot. This has been resolved.
    • The backup run dialog could be clipped when running at 800x600 resolution. This has been resolved.
    • An incorrect VSS warning message box was displayed when imaging removable drives in the rescue media. This has been resolved.
    • We've increased the time-out when connecting to network shares to reduce connection failures.
    • We recommend re-building your rescue media if these problems adversely affect you, or if you're unsure.
  • viBoot
    viBoot in VirtualBox mode now uses per-user repository for VMs instead of per-machine configuration. This is to bring it in-line with Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager UI. Existing VMs will be migrated to per-user repository when viBoot is restarted after installation.
  • Removable Drive Images
    Images of BitLocker encrypted flash/removable drives would fail with a file system error. This has been resolved.
  • Clone/Restore
    A drive letter could be incorrectly assigned when 'None' was selected for the target partition drive letter. This has been resolved. .
  • Server Plus Exchange
    • Exchange backups now show a more appropriate error when attempting to backup databases that changed location.
    • Encrypted and password protected Incremental backups could fail to append to an existing backup set. This has been resolved.
  • Various
    Various minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.

Bug fixes and Improvements v8.0.5963 - 7th June 2021
  • Cloning
    • When running clone jobs in 'batch' mode the clone dialog would incorrectly be shown at the end of the job. This has been resolved.
    • The taskbar icon could be hidden for scheduled clone jobs. This has been resolved.
  • Windows PE
    If Windows PE has a low horizontal screen resolution of 800 pixels or less, then the restore/clone dialog could be 'clipped', rendering the 'Finish' button inaccessible. This has been resolved.
  • ReflectUI.exe
    ReflectUI could generate a program error on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 and cause multiple icons to appear in the notification area. This has been resolved.
  • Backup to DVD/CD
    Reflect could generate a program exception when ejecting optical media at the end of a backup. This has been resolved.
  • File and Folder Backup
    When searching password protected/encrypted File and Folder backups, the entered correct password was rejected causing the search to fail. This has been resolved.
  • Retention Warning
    The backup completion warning, when the retention purge deletes all backups prior to running the backup, wasn't being suppressed if the retention rules were explicitly set to retain 1 Full. This has been resolved.

Bug fixes and Improvements v8.0.5994 - 21st June 2021
  • Windows PE
    When mapping a network drive in WinPE/RE the error "A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated." could be encountered. This has been resolved.
  • Rescue Media Builder
    We've added the WinRE Boot\Resources folder contents to the rescue media build for improved loading visualization.
  • Log View
    Log Files View would crash if a completion message exceeded 255 chars, this has been resolved.
  • UI Theme
    • Some Edit controls in viBoot would fail to respond to mouse interactions when using dark themes. This has been resolved.
    • When using the light theme, some UI elements would incorrectly display a dark grey overlay. This has been resolved.
  • Consolidation
    • The standalone consolidation tool 'Consolidate.exe' rejected correct passwords for password protected backups. This has been resolved.
    • A rare condition could cause consolidation to fail with a 'Bad file descriptor' error. This has been resolved.
  • Backup File Name
    • When an Incremental or Differential had no backup set to append to and created a Full, the {BACKUPTYPE} Parameter would be incorrectly replaced with the requested type rather than 'Full'. This has been resolved.
    • A backup set with alternative locations, where the Full backup was created with Macrium Reflect v7.2.4732 or earlier, could cause the backup file name to exclude the default Image ID and target the wrong directory. This has been resolved.
    • We've added a 'Collision Sequence' number that persists for a backup set when the Full backup has the same name as an existing backup. This ensures that backup sets with similar names and no unique prefix, can be easily identified by file name.
  • VBScript Generation
    The auto generated VBScript source template failed to run with a code syntax error. This has been resolved.
  • Scheduled Tasks
    In some circumstances, when editing non SYSTEM account scheduled tasks, Reflect would ask for a username and password even when one had already been provided. This has been resolved.
  • Restore
    • The locked drive dialog incorrectly showed drive 'X:' rather than the locked volume when prompting to restore using using the rescue media. This has been resolved.
    • When launching a restore from an image file in Windows Explorer, the restore Wizard would be suppressed for the first run after a reboot. This has been resolved.
    • The Restore/Clone automatic resize was not locking the size of MBR WinRE recovery partitions. This has been resolved.
  • Existing Backups View
    The Existing Backups view could become unsynchronized with the "Folders To Search". This has been resolved.
  • Backup Definition Rename
    • Renaming a backup definition file could lead to an abnormal Reflect termination. This has been resolved.
    • Renaming a backup definition file could cause the next definition in the list to incorrectly show the name of the file just renamed. This has been resolved.
  • Network Path Auto-Complete
    A long delay could be encountered when entering a UNC or network share path as a backup path. This has been resolved.
  • Server Plus
    • When backing up Microsoft Exchange the incorrect databases, intermittently, could be listed in the backup summary. This has been resolved.
    • Exchange backups could fail with: "One or more files failed the copy process" if the database path uses a different case to the defaulted case. This has been resolved.
  • viBoot
    The network adapter settings in the create VM wizard could be incorrectly hidden. This has been resolved.
  • Various
    Various minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.
