It is essential that you back up your data regularly to protect against data loss and corruption. Macrium Reflect Free Edition is a simple and effective tool that can help you take regular backups of your system. In fact, this was one of the older backup softwares which have held their own with the passage of time.

Being a rather old software, Macrium Reflect Free Edition does not have the most modern user interface. However, it is still functional and presents no challenges to getting the job done. It is not the easiest, and you may need to spend some time with it before you get comfortable. However, this software is a cut-down freeware version of the commercial version, and leaves out some features that may be important to some people. The free version does not support Windows Server. It can make images of entire volumes and entire disks, but not of specified files or folders. Hence, you cannot get away with small target space by backing op only critical files. On the other hand, it has good volume imaging features. It can create an image of system partition as well. It supports Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) so that it can make a backup even when the volume is in use. It supports backing up to a local drive, an external USB drive and network drive. A peculiar thing is that the free version is licensed for business use as well. Most freeware softwares with paid upgrades are licensed only for personal use.

You can be prepared in case the operating system files are damaged and the system does not boot. Macrium Reflect Free Edition allows you to create bootable Linux and Windows PE disk so that you can recover the system partition from the backup image. It also supports loading drivers so the Windows PE instance should not have any trouble recovering the backup. It supports full backup and differential backup, with incremental supported in the paid version. It supports compression of the backup image, but it does not support encryption.  It can also easily clone entire disks. It also has the ability to boot the backup image as a virtual machine. You can browse and restore specific parts. It has a built-in task scheduler to run a scheduled automatic backup in full backup or differential backup mode.
