With the announcement that v7 will be upon us around 26Feb2016, could someone from Macrium please revue the ADDITIONAL NEW features expected in the initial v7 release.

And while at it, how 'bout a heads-up on the update cost, if any.

Thanks in advance!

Just in case it helps anyone I've had a reply confirming any v6 home licenses purchased after nov26th 2016 are eligible for free v7
I only purchased in December & glad they are offering this.

Would also like to know what new features are planned.

Cheers

I have a quick question for Support/Devs... will v7 still have the same compatibility with v5 images as v6 currently has?

Thanks!

Hope this helps

Don't know if I need the new features. Even if it sounds odd in the ssd world, I'd appreciate a backup software that co-operates with a good defrag tool like o&o defrag.

Dreamer, I guess I don't know what you mean by "cooperation" with a defrag tool.

Let me explain: If I make an image of a disk without any fragmentation and restore it back to a new disk almost all files become fragmented - this is far away from being perfect.

@Dreamer2004

Thanks for posting.

This is not correct. A restored image to a partition the same size or greater than the original is exactly the same as it was when it was imaged. A disk image is an exact cluster by cluster representation of the file system and the restore puts every cluster back to exactly the same sector offset as it was when the image was created. The exception is if you shrink a file system during a restore, in this case the file system is actually defragged 'on the fly' and there is no fragmentation whatsoever in the restored file system.
