I am starting to think that there are not going to be any external Beta testers for version 8, unless some of you have already received a download password.

It could be the beta period is actually closed.  It has been over a month since the last update.  If it extends to a 2nd or 3rd month, that's generally a sign that Reflect is due to for a major bump up.  Either a full integer up or a 10th version number up.  So, Macrium may not be accepting new beta testers because they're close to releasing the gold version of Reflect 8.


Again, I don't want to second guess what Macrium is doing, though.  Just pointing out the past trends.

I think you are correct, DB.
Time will tell.

Is the v8 beta already feature complete? I wonder if there will be a change in the Destination Drive Discovery option?
Reflect v7 does't allow you to define a set of volumeids. You cannot assign more than one VolumeID to a backup-plan, which results in no destination rotation.

^ Yes you can. I do this myself. After enabling volume ID discovery, go to a definition file and use the Alternative Locations feature to add multiple destinations, just as you can when using drive letters. The destinations will be displayed based on their currently assigned drive letter, but the definition file will record Volume IDs, which you can verify by reading the XML and by noticing that if you close Reflect and change the drive letter of one of your destinations, one of the entries in Alternative Locations will have changed.
