So where can I download a Q4 2020 version of the program?
After the last update I have found Error 9 creeping into every single attempt of a backup.
I carried out the CHKDSK /R and all the DISM checks on C:\ and backup disks (all 3 of them) and found absolutely no issues whatsoever. Until it came to cloning ... then came the CRC issue again. So I know I have good disks, I know that the cables (both original and new ones) and all 3 backup disks are OK, I know that I'm doing what has worked for Lord knows how long and yet ... it's still FUBAR. So I tried a full clone not just a Delta. And it still the same utterly fudge and chips Error 9 message popped up. Frustrated, I looked through previous forum and external discussions on Error 9 yet again and found no joy. I've been in and out of IT since 1984 (Old-Bloke) so I know my way around troubleshooting.
Then I pulled out my size 12 shotgun approach.
I forked out just under $30 for a competitor cloner that doesn't offer Delta cloning.
It worked perfectly; takes 24 hours or so on a 2Tb drive, but at least it works.
I reloaded Windows 10 on one of the disks: it still worked. (Just checking that last possible platform variable on the OSI 7-layer model.)
I fired up M.Reflect just now and tried to run a Delta clone. In a confirmed perfect hard/soft/wetware environment. Identical variables to the dinosaur-slow competitor: from donor disk (where any CRC should force an error) through new cabling, to functional external disk hardware and everything that could feasibly be needed for a perfect backup environment ~ guess what?
>>It still came up with that bl...y Error 9! There is zero chance of a CRC fault. so what the blazes is causing the fault code? I know that it's not at this end. Everything worked fine until the last update. I haven't had something this frustrating since I was working on Olivetti 8086's back in the mid '80's.
Then I put in one of the dinosaur clones to use as the donor disk. A completely different disk and, you know where we're going here ~~ The same ruddy fault code comes up on a completely different disk. Same on the next disk that was popped in there too. Now I'm back on the original platter and Have all but given hope of ever using M.Reflect again. Only the $30 snail-paced dinosaur seems capable of providing a clone. M.Reflect worked fine just a couple of iterations ago and then bang!
So then, to the sound of maurnful violins and wailing bagpipes, as I said: Where can I download a Q4 2020 version of the program?
