    Macrium stopped offering Reflect Professional.
    All they have now is Reflect Home and very high priced Reflect Server.
    They are turning in to Storage Craft mainly support corporate or enterprise companies.
    Reflect Pro had some good features in it. To get pro features you have to buy a server version. Macrium cancelled my Pro license keys after they stopped selling Reflect Pro.

    In reality they stopped offering the standard version.
    The pro version is renamed as Home Edition and Workstation (same products different licence agreement).

    Daniel, when I look at the v5 comparison chart HERE, the only thing I see missing in v6 HOME/WORKSTATION is the LINUX BOOT Disc... and they are weighing that decision as we speak.

    Is there a specific feature that you find missing that you use in v5 PRO?

    Hi Daniel,

    They will not cancel your Reflect PRO v5 license keys, unless you used them to upgrade to v6.

    Best regards,

    I don't understand the criticism. Reflect Pro had the "Restore to dissimilar hardware" feature that Standard didn't have. Now it's all part of Home. So what are you losing?
