Earlier this month, Macrium Reflect Free Edition received an update, though interestingly there was no official release notes or changelog for it. So when we published the news, we wondered, what are the new features or improvements and fixes? Turns out there are release notes. Not even now. This may also be the last Macrim Reflect Free Edition update as Paramount Software, which publishes the tool, has already announced that version 8.0 was the last of its kind. So when one chooses “Reflect 8 Free” for Home PC. Official website, it is version 8.0.7279 that gets downloaded. So for now, it remains to be seen if the developers make a future free edition of 8.0 after that as the firm has now moved to version 8.1 and it is not free.
