I just finished the upgrade without any obvious issues.  However, when I opened v6 for the first time I noticed that four of my eight physical drives had unused space showing (128mb for each of the drives affected.)  Below is a screen grab of Macrium's main disk view.

This extra space does not show up in windows 8's disk manager.

                                                         As best I can recall the 128MB mystery zones were not showing in the v5 display.  I've searched around but can't find any info that would explain this change.  Thanks in advance for any help.

See Microsoft's Recommended UEFI-Based Disk-Partition Configurations for an explanation of the complete disk partitioning structure.  Reflect's current user interface shows all partitions, including system partitions.  Windows Disk Management may not show all of them, but they're there never the less.

Hi Rick

They are the GPT MSR partitons:

These partitions are hidden from the Windows Disk Management Console but are visible in DiskPart:

From a command prompt with elevated privileges type:
DiskPart
sel disk 0
list par

I was hoping it was something simple like that.  Thanks for the quick reply.

BTW v6 is performing great here.  The program seems much more responsive.  Loading the program with v5 involved some painful wait times.  V6 loads without delay.  It appears that all my definitions and schedules made it through the upgrade.
Thanks.
