    Thank you, that looks interesting. I will enable it and see how it affects performance.

    Well for anyone who might want something like this in the future, I figured I may as well post it. The example below will go through the entire C drive and show files modified in the last 5 days. If you run this against your C drive, do it from an elevated PowerShell session for best results (not needed if you're running it against a Reflect image mounted with the "Enable access to restricted folders" option), and if you're running it against any entire drive, expect that it will take a while.

    Get-ChildItem C:\ -File -Recurse | where {$_.LastWriteTime -gt (Get-Date).AddDays(-5)} | select FullName,LastWriteTime | sort FullName | format-table -autosize

    JP,
    If you would allow me, just for my understanding:
    Is this FullName giving the Long Name or the Long Path?
    (or maybe the short version?)

    Try it out and see! :) Or if not, FullName is the entire path to the file. Name would be just the file name, and DirectoryName would be the full path to the containing folder. Fyi you can see what properties are available by doing something like going to a directory with minimal content and running "Get-ChildItem | select *". You can even limit it by doing something like "Get-ChildItem | select * -First 5" for only the first five items in the list (sorted by the default mechanism in this case). File and directory objects have different available properties.

    Thanks. I am more familiar to terms like Long Name, Long Path, Short Name, Short Path. That was the reason for asking.

    How can I add a delay of 10, 20 minutes etc in the execution of a missed backup task? A missed backup task is executed immediately after the computer booting if the corresponding option is enabled, or does not executed complete at all if the corresponding option is disabled. Editing a task in Windows Scheduler is not possible.

    Looking at settings for scheduled tasks, the only option I can see is "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed". There's no option for a delay there, so even if the Reflect tasks were user-editable, I don't see a setting that you could change to achieve this. And Reflect itself wouldn't be able to implement this very well, because Reflect isn't even started until the scheduled task begins in the first place, and even then I don't know if it can detect how it was launched, in which case the ability to customize delays for specific scheduled tasks from within Reflect might be impractical.

    Macrium has said they're working on implementing their own job scheduling engine to get off of Task Scheduler, which would likely give them more flexibility to accommodate feature requests relating to scheduling.

    And not that it will help this specific issue, but if you manually create scheduled tasks to run Reflect jobs, you'll be able to edit them in Task Scheduler, although I believe in that case you will NOT see them under the Scheduled Backups tab within Reflect. I don't know of a way to make the tasks directly editable within Task Scheduler and continue to appear in Reflect itself.

    I hate to let things like this go by... but this feature of REFLECT was promised in February 2017 when v7 was released.

    Based on the movement in this direction to date (3+ years and counting), I personally don't believe you're ever going to see it.

    This is the only way out in this situation, I also came to this conclusion.

    Macrium Reflect v7.2.4797 Released (March 19, 2020)
    Download
    Changelog
    http://updates.macrium.com/reflect/v7/v7.2.4797/details7.2.4797.htm
    Bug fixes and Improvements v7.2.4797 - 19th March 2020
    • In response to potential file system corruption issues that could arise from applying some recent Windows Updates, we have reviewed our data integrity checks and implemented new features:
      See https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/kb4535996/134c504e-bb55-4e3c-a5da-28794a4b6079

      Note: The first Incremental after installing may take much longer than normal.
    • Changed Block Tracker
      We've improved CBT to reset more robustly on System power failure, unexpected shutdown and unexpected device removal.
    • Repair option when verifying Image files
      We've added an 'Attempt repair' option when verifying image files. If block corruption is detected and the live file system contains the original data then the block is repaired by replacing with the original data. Block corruption is exceptionally rare but this additional feature is designed to further mitigate file system and storage problems. We've also added an additional command line switch to the standalone verification utility.
      See https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW72/Verifying image and backup files
      and https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/d... image and backup files from the command line

      Note: Repair isn't guaranteed and will only be attempted if the originating source volume exists on the system performing the verification.

    • Consolidation
      We've also added verification and live repair attempt on verification failure for merged blocks during consolidation. If a data block fails verification when read for merging, the live file system is checked for the original block data.
    • Incremental Deltas
      It was possible for a damaged Incremental index to go undetected when constructing a full index chain. This was a rare occurrence, but it could propagate further into the backup set. We have enhanced our detection code to prevent this from occurring in future.
    • Clone and restore
      Display power saving settings are now honored during Clone and Restore operations. Previously the display would remain on regardless of the Windows settings.
    • Exchange
      Exchange delta incs could fail to build if multiple volumes were present for Exchange DB and meta data/log files. This has been resolved.

    Updated to v. 7.2.4797 without any issues. As usual after updating as well the 'bootable rescue media', I did an incremental backup and a restore, and everything worked out fine. As noted in the changelog, the first incremental took much longer than normal (usually 1 minute to 5 minutes), the second incremental took 20 seconds.

    Yes, I have the same problem as reported on the Macrium forum, although I don't use the 'Personal Vault' within OneDrive. I have posted on the Macrium forum as well. Thank you for posting here this issue.
