      Hey Y’all,

      Well, I couldn’t find my original post, which was on WSL, so I’m starting a new thread here.

      I’ve just completed a complete rewrite and update of my PowerShell program to control Macrium Reflect backups. This was designed for those of us who are responsible for friends and family PCs who are used by Non-Technical people. It’s a install once then all the user has to do is connect the backup drive and click on a shortcut. It even pops up a message when it’s time for the user to do the next backup. It’s all in the zip file including a 14 page user manual, for the technical person setting it up, so give it a read first!

      Please report back on your experience with the program and/or suggestions for improvement.

      Thanks. What prevents Reflect 7 from working with these scripts?

      V7  changed so it doesn’t automatically exit, at least in the free version.
