I searched both the Macrium site and Google for an explanation for this and really didn't find a specific mention of it.
In Reflect when you create a new backup the resultant XML file is saved to your ...Documents\Reflect directory as "My Backup.xml"
The instruction box that is displayed shows the following:



Of course when you double click the saved XML file by default the file gets opened in a browser, generally IE.
I'm wondering if the yellow statement above is a hold over from previous versions and should be removed or is there something I must do on all Windows 10 PC's to comply with the "double click" directive?

Thanks.

Interesting, I never even noticed this.  Associating XML files in Windows with Reflect wouldn't make a ton of sense since XML files are widely used outside of Reflect.  And even double-clicking the XML files within Reflect under the Backup Definition Files tab opens them for editing rather than immediately running a job.

You're right.  This, too, escaped my attention.  Double clicking the XML file outside of Reflect isn't assigned to Reflect running the job because as jphughan said, XML files are used widely throughout Windows.  And, double clicking on XML's in your list of XML definitions doesn't run the task; it opens it for editing.

Thanks for the post and sorry for the confusion.

The text refers to an obsolete method to run the backup by double clicking in the Reflect UI. We'll get that updated.

To run directly from Windows Explorer there's a 'Macrium' right click context menu.

Kind Regards
