AfterDawn: Glossary


MRIMG, short for Macrium Reflect, is a backup and disk imaging program created for Windows in 2006. Very similar to Ghost and other HDD imagaing programs, Macrium Reflect allows users to create disk images using Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service to ensure accurate data for the time of the snapshot.

The newest version works on all post-millennium Windows versions and even includes VBScript to allow system admins to create more complex backup situations.

MRIMG can create either "full," "incremental," or "differential" backups depending on storage requirements and how fast you want your backups.

Images can then be mounted using virtual drive software and restored using a custom Live CD.
