Intro to Backups
As the amount of data we create continues to grow, the amount of data we lose increases in tandem. According to, 21% of people have never made a backup! For those people, experiencing data loss can mean that data is lost forever. Creating a backup ensures that this is not the case and data loss is only a temporary set back.

“World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups.”

Creating a single day to highlight the importance of this part of digital security is great, and for Team Macrium, it’s our entire lifes’ work. As our motto states “It’s our business to protect your data”. We are proud to create reliable software so that you can be confident your data is secure.

Macrium Reflect can be used to create disk images and clones to protect your data. In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between images and clones and help decide which is right for you.

Disk Imaging
A disk image stores the data required to restore disks or partitions to the state that they were in when the disk image was created. The data is compressed into an (.mrimg) image file and can be restored at a later point in time. The changes that have occurred since a previous image was created can then be imaged using a differential or incremental image, reducing the amount of time that an image takes, and creating a smaller backup file. Images can be scheduled to ensure that your partitions and disks are backed up at regular intervals without any interaction.
For more information about creating a disk image, we recommend reading this knowledgebase article.

Whereas a disk image creates a compressed file containing a copy of the data that you specified, a clone will copy the exact disk or partitions uncompressed onto the destination disk that you have specified.
