Losing an important file due to a power shortage or accidentally deleting it can be a real disaster, especially if you need to open it urgently. However, this problem can be reversed with a data recovery tool. Macrium Reflect is a professional software for file recuperation that detects the location of disappeared files and rewrites their content. The tool supports various file formats and types, including text documents, photos, audios, emails, videos, and many others. The tool is mainly designed for storage file management but it also supports physical carriers such as flash drives, CDs, and DVDs.

How Can Macrium Reflect Boost Your PC?

The software has two main functions. The first one is file restoration, applied to broken or accidentally deleted files. The second feature is automatical backup copy creation. You can create a duplicate version with your entire file storage.

The main menu provides users with the ability to open files for backup copy creation, preview storage folders, manage backup files, restore deleted data, perform additional tasks such as file scanning and space optimization. On top of that, there is a ‘Help’ tab where you can receive advice on software’s functionality. Backup files and folders are compressed into a FAT32 device. The tool supports individual and multiple file processing - you can create a backup version of an entire folder or disk. Restoration also supports a batch mode - you can recover dozens of files simultaneously.

Backup and restore tasks are displayed in a separate menu so you don’t confuse the features of these two functions. All additional tasks are located on an individual panel as well. This efficient interface makes it impossible to lose a necessary file or find a needed feature. Macrium Reflect provides a user on insights about disk name, storage space, last performed activity. You can create a report about your entire storage on one screen. Moreover, the tool handles partitions, VB Script files, XML Definition objects, MS-DOS files, and scheduled backups. 

All operations can be sorted depending on their priority, from high to low. Each process has its own dialogue window that displays progress and remaining time. While beginners will be completely fine with using default settings, proficient users might want to customize the software manually. Macrium Reflect has an advanced settings menu where you can edit compression levels, protect data with a password, manage disk space and edit auto verify image properties.
