Macrium Reflect (the BEST Windows backup software) 20% off with code

+2 Deal Score
14,123 Views
Macrium is the best (Win XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10) backup software I've used (acronis, Norton, etc are not even contenders compared to Macrium). Saved my bacon many, many times. You can do full or incremental backups and choose to restore the whole thing or just specific files. It also works pretty fast with external USB drives.

Don't wait until your Seagate drive fails (again) or you get nailed with ransomware and lose everything. Plug in a USB drive like Western Digital Passport 4GB (on sale now for $119 at Amazon/Office Depot if you don't have one http://www.officedepot.com/catalo...ine=314906), run Macrium, then unplug. Your data is safe, for cheap. Repeat weekly or monthly as you wish for peace of mind.

You can get the home version for 20% off with a code right now, making it $55.96.

Check the box for coupon code and enter ANN-WE2-2UJ at checkout to drop the price to $55.96.

This ONLY works on the HOME version. The Workstation version is essentially the same, but it has event logging and better support and you get free upgrades if there are new versions during the year.

There's a nice chart comparing Macrium Free, Home, Workstation, Server versions here:

Are there features worth paying for outside of the free version?

So, it's basically Time Machine for Windows? I'll never understand how this isn't part of the Windows OS by now.

The two best features of Paid are:

Incremental images, which are very fast. Free only does differential images, which can get slow.

And paid does specific file and folder backups

If Microsoft did it, it wouldn't come close to what Macrium has made. Great product.

Actually Windows already has it builtin. It had it since Windows 8. It's called File History and it works the same way as osx time machine but without all the pretty visual fluff.

And if you want the visual fluff, the next update of Windows will have "Timeline" feature.

I like Macium but free version is good enough for me, wouldn't pay $55 for features I'd rarely use.

The paid one has a lot more flexibility and speed, but free or paid, as long as you're using Macrium to keep yourself with backups offline, that's all that matters.
