Macrium Reflect 8.0.6353
They have a blog post dated yesterday exclaiming Reflect 8 Free is out now!
I find this to be rather odd since I’ve been using version 8 (free) since May and provided the links here.
Anywho… There’s a bunch of fixes and Win11 support.

For those new here, I use Macrium Reflect to create disk images on all my computers. I use a bootable USB drive via the Create Rescue Media menu option. I only do backups offline. Old habits die hard.

First and foremost, I do not backup from within Windows. I only use the boot CD.
Why? After many years of backup and restoring Windows and Linux I have seen just about every method fail at one time or another.
It is my belief that the only way to do an Operating System backup and restore is:
1 – Only use system images.
2 – Not to be using that OS. This is referred to as being offline.

Sean Payton Explains Why Big Bench Press Numbers At NFL Combine Is A Bad Thing For Linemen
Many, many years ago at a local gym I was working out next to an ex-NBA player. Dude was 7’4″ with an 8’2″ wingspan. He asked for a spot, we chatted a bit. He was very frustrated with his bench press weight. I remember saying something like, “dude, you have to push the bar a foot farther than I do”.
Just get some resistance training in. Anyone who cares about how much weight you’re doing isn’t worth your time. I don’t think I’ve done a one-rep-max in 20 years. I couldn’t even hazard a guess on how much weight I can do in a particular exercise.

Understanding MBR/BIOS and GPT/UEFI
“Master Boot Record (MBR) and GUID Partition Table (GPT), are two different ways of storing partition and boot information on a disk. Understanding these partitioning schemes is essential to understanding how information is stored on your storage devices and choosing the correct partitioning scheme for your scenario.”
Short, informative article from the makers of Macrium Reflect.
