Hi Arvy, thanks for your rapid and informative reply. As always happens, after I had posted the original comment, I did more testing and found that functionality.
I can confirm that using the Restore Backup option within Reflect restores my ZIP files without corruption. I had previously relied so heavily on the excellent and easy "mount backup" functionality that I had never needed to use the Restore Backup function within the Reflect main application.
So, that is the "corruption" issue resolved, however the Restore Backup process is the exact opposite of the Mount Backup process when it comes to ease of use, requiring quite a number of not particularly obvious steps to get a file restored. Additionally, when restoring a file to a "New Location" it appears that the backed up folder structure is always restored with the selected file, rather than just the file, which is inconvenient too.
So whilst my original panic attack is over and my faith in the product restored, I would still like macrium reflect to consider implementing solutions 1 or 2 above. I'm sure this is easier said than done, but being able to mount a backup as NTFS would resolve the large files issue and keep the restore process quick and simple.
Thanks for your help. Cheers
