I know that this has been requested before, but I can't seem to find any trace of that discussion in the forums now.  So I'll start a new one...
It would be great if you could add "Reboot" to the "On completion" options.  Currently, just about everything is there *except* that one (i.e. shutdown, hibernate, and suspend are all there, but reboot/restart is missing).

Should be a simple option to add.  Don't really care much for myself, but "aye" for those who want it.  Or "eye" for Froggie. Tongue

You must be running backups from the WinPE environment, because I can't see where this would come in handy if not.  But "aye' for me since it seems to be an easy addition.  I myself would like to see a "Shutdown" option after a restore using WinPE.

Thanks to everyone for contributing on this thread.

Yes this is easy to do, however, suspend, shutdown and hibernate, places your PC in a 'low' or 'no' power state after a backup. This seems logical if you want to backup and walk away. A 'reboot', on the other hand, leaves your PC in max power state after the backup and therefore doesn't offer any advantage to an unattended  backup.

Please enlighten us to the advantage of 'reboot' on backup completion and, if it's a compelling reason, it will be done!


Kind Regards

Hi Nick, long time no talk! ;-)

In my case, I run nightly automated image backups in the wee hours of the morning, so that I have a fresh backup when I begin my workday.  I would also prefer to have a freshly-booted system when I start. and having Macrium Reflect reboot my system following a successful backup would be *very* handy!

Also, I have other automated tasks and utilities that launch at various times during my nightly "down time" so I don't want to just launch anything that shuts down the system until I get up in the morning.

Thanks for considering this addition.

Thanks for considering this addition.
So Nick, is there any chance that we'll see a "Restart" option added to an update any time soon?
