Update:

The reported behavior (Reflect attempts to create an image when a scheduled File & Folder backup definition is launched) still occurs in Build 8.0.6560.

Moreover, I believe I have determined the conditions necessary for this bug to be triggered: 

This happens after I reboot my computer, if the scheduled tasks are launched before I log on to my account (i.e., after Kernel-General Event 12 but before Winlogon Event 7001).

Is there any valid reason why Reflect should not be able to complete a backup task in the period between power-up and logon?  If so, this issue may be in the category of a valid/normal error condition that gets misreported (albeit in a very bizarre way).  If scheduled tasks are supposed to be able to complete before the user has logged on, then the issue is more serious.

I don't know if it's related, but during beta testing of v8, I had an issue where scheduled backups weren't running at all.  What had happened was Reflect was "stuck" on start of Windows.  If I waited a minute or two before entering my password and logging, on, scheduled backups started on time.  If I entered my password to log into Windows right away when the logon prompt appeared, Reflect's scheduled backups would not start.  Reflect was updated to fix this "hang" on Windows start.
