Just a couple of small peeves of which I would like to make you aware:
1) Location of TEMPORARY "Work Files": They should be in a TEMP Directory!
However, I find them in C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\
2) Extreme reliance on storing [User Entered] MR Configuration Data in the Registry!
Please provide an option so we can control where this gets stored:
It could either be an .INI file or a Registry Key which points to a Directory.
Rational for User Control:
1) I want a CLEAN SEPARATION of CODE (OS, Application Programs, etc.)
USER DATA (Application Configuration Data, Application Data, etc.)
and, you ask, why do I want this?
2) Because I want them to reside on separate partitions:
an OS Partition containing just code and a DATA Partition with ALL my data
which SHOULD include, at a minimum, ALL User Entered MR Configuration Data.
Being a "mad (not in the angry sense), retired, software engineer", I may do a half-dozen Restores of my OS Partition everyday from a "pristine" Backup (which I created after doing a "clean install" of OS or all of the Applications). It annoys me that I have to repeatedly reenter all of the MR Configuration Data.
By the way, I have found this "data separation" to be an extremely effective approach to "malware". If I even think my system might have been infected, I immediately Restore the OS Partition from my "pristine" Backup. And, I hope you noticed, it relies heavily upon MR.
