Improved BitLocker restore processing. New warning message box displayed for images created with this release or later if the restore outcome results in a 'BitLocker removal' restore.
The source BitLocker state is now included in Image file meta data. For images created with this release or later, this is now shown as an icon in the restore wizard source drive and restore tab.
If your system uses BitLocker encryption then we recommend creating fresh Windows PE rescue media after updating.
MIG and RoboCopy sync from a root folder. When using RoboCopy to synchronise or move backup files from a drive root folder the operation could be incorrectly blocked by MIG. This has been resolved.
Backup target share authentication. Authenticated network share backup targets could fail with 'Access Denied' if a user without write permissions has prior access. This has been resolved.
Restore problem to striped or mirrored Dynamic volumes. A restore or clone could corrupt the target dynamic disk configuration if the target volume was setup up as either 'striped' or 'mirrored'. This has been resolved.
If this issue affects you then please create fresh Windows PE rescue media after updating.
Exchange Databases On volume mount points. Exchange backup would not check the database path for volume mount points, resulting in backup failure, this has now been resolved.
Various bug fixes and changes to improve Macrium Reflect.
viBoot could fail to boot encrypted images. This has been resolved.
viBoot could incorrectly detect MBR disks as GPT if the source disk has remnants of a GPT header leftover from a previous initialisation. This has been resolved.
viBoot would sometimes fail to start when launched from within Reflect. This has been resolved.
