It may just be a typo in the registry entries and certainly not a critical issue, but I find Reflect's Windows services listings somewhat confusing.  The service listing for ReflectService.exe shows its DisplayName as "Macrium Reflect Scheduling Services", but shows its Description as "Macrium Reflect Image Mounting Service".  Does that service handle both functions, or if not, which one?  Isn't the mounting of backup image files handled by PSMounterEx.sys (service DisplayName "Macrium Reflect Image Explorer Driver") under both WinPE and the regular Windows working environment?

Hi,
Your confusion is understandable. The reason for the disparity in the naming is entirely historical. The role of the service changed, but the service display name was not updated to reflect this. It has been noted and will be fixed in a later release.
Kind regards,
John P.

Thanks for the response, John.  Probably only "geeky" type people like myself would even notice the discrepancy or wonder about it.  It's certainly not a high priority functional issue.  Smile
