How does one get an invite or a password?

@jphughan I guess that based on technology merging backups (synthetic full) should be able to be done in glimpse compared to NTFS. Similar to Citrix PVS, FSLogix and Hyper-V.
I am a very passionated user of ReFS. But be warned there is a critical bug in 1903/1909/2004/20H2 so avoid to use it in a mirrored storage süace.
A MS support ticket is open for months now, requesting a backport. Covid doesn't help to escalate it.
 I have helped to solve this issue for Insider dev though, and also to maintain the Microsoft Docs for ReFS, the role of ReFS in CSV etc.

On Dec. 19th, Macrium posted the following note on TWITTER..

Macrium Software - Dec 19
Buy now with 20% off, upgrade for free later! Reflect 8 coming early 2021 https://macrium.com/holidays

This usually means that v8 will arrive within 90-days from this announcement... and Macrium seems to like the month of February (v6 & v7) for some reason Smile

My v7 license is up in April but I may purchase v8 earlier due to the dark screen.

Your license isn't up, just the direct support aspect of your license... the license remains valid for v7 forever.

And, often times, Macrium will still support if you bring up an issue in the forums, even after your direct support ends.

It's odd that there is no mention of this on Macrium's web site - no indication that a "/holidays" page even exists.  You have to go to the bottom of the main page and look at the "Latest Tweets" list - something I would never have done if you hadn't mentioned the tweet.  

The holiday special is for purchasing MR 7 and getting a free upgrade to MR 8.  There's no mention of existing MR 7 customers.  Is this a special deal just for new customers?   Going through the customer login page just took me to the general https://www.macrium.com/ page so it looks like there's nothing specifically for an existing customer.

When the V8 is released, there will, most likely, be some kind of upgrade offer for it from V7 customers.  I've been using Reflect since V4.x.  For every version afterwards, I've been able to purchase an existing upgrade license at a reduced price.
