    Ok, I thought it was worth testing so I tried to put the card back. It does not lock, there is no click. Pushing after inserting it does nothing. It is just a push/pull slot. I am disappointed that as expensive as this thing was that it does not work as you described as I would expect it should. Fortunately I was able to get it out easier this time as I was able to get a better look at it and see the little raised portion and get just enough of a grip to pull it. I have no intention of ever using this slot again.

    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.
    • Various
      Various minor fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect

    Good idea. I should probably recreate all of mine as well.

    Is the free version of 8.x going to be released as an update over v7.x?

    Indeed, that's very unprofessional honestly from such a big and old company. This release IMO hasn't been great. At least if you're gonna make an official announcement on the website, have the downloader download the correct version before publicly announcing it. I've been saying this for a while now, quality control is non-existent at Macrium.

    This is downloader only, it will download v7 Free.

    You can download Free v8 with direct link only like this

    Yeah that's been the same for a while, it's just the download agent but the problem is not that downloader, it's the fact that it's getting v7 off their servers instead of v8 for free users despite the announcement. If you enter a Home license key, then that same downloader will download the latest v8 no problem so it's best to grab the free V8 from the link I posted above until they fix this mess.

    @stapp From the link you provided above, it says:

    It has no mention of V8 Free being available yet.

    I also tweeted this to their company and their reply back was:

    The downloader can download any Macrium versions without entering the key, simply create copies of the downloader and rename them.
    reflectdl.exe - Home, Free
    reflectdlhf.exe -Free
    reflectdlfull.exe - Home, WS, S, S +
    Note: Free temporary unpossible.

    I don't understand why you trash a Company's release control when they haven't even made the release yet. All that's been available here in the Forum to date has been "in the wild" when it comes to the FREE edition. The only OFFICIAL Macrium announcement concerning the FREE edition has been "try the HOME edition and if you don't want to license it, it will automatically revert to FREE in 30-days."

    Instead of trashing the Company, why don't you be patient and wait for the official release.

    I can't agree with you. For me it was one of best releases so far. Program updated from within app with no problems. All my settings remained intact, all scheduled task were retained, everyday backup run without problems. I can only congratulate company and beta testers for great work with this version.
    Regarding installing free version - if it was officially not released then that's their decision. If you use installer from link officially not released then you take your own chances.
    Only thing I would change on their site would be to explicitly showing that Free version is still on v.7.

    Agreed. This is not yet released. You can buy the paid version, wait, or use it anyway and accept that it, again, isn't released yet. Everyone can complain if they want I guess, but it's not a valid complaint.

    This is still not the wild version, but the official version downloaded from the official link. It's just that Macrium is postponing the announcement of the free version, believing that some of the users out of impatience will use the paid version, and the servers and home page needs to be prepared.
    In any case, the desire of users to get Free today only adds marketing advantages to the program.
    If Macrium didn't like this, it would have chopped off the Free version download entirely.

    As a follow up to this the reply from support was:
    "The crash is due to the Nahomic audio driver causing a compatibility issue"
    That may be possible as the sd card was filled with only audio files. It has not happened at all prior to inserting the sd card though. Or since. I'm not terribly worried about it though I did follow their suggestion regardless.

    Edit:
    After doing some research I was able to determine that the sd card slot does click and eject though I could not get it to when I first complained. After applying the fix of excluding the sound driver and Reflect from interfering with each other all seems to be working as expected. Just in case anyone wondered.

    But they say it in a completely clear way on their site (https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree): Free version = version 7. They write exactly what you get:

    a)

    b)

    That's the same URL as the site I looked at.;) It seems that they have different contents on the english and on the german version of their site. (For me the german version opens automatically. I found no option to change the language.)
