In task manager, there is an entry for "Macrium Reflect UI Watcher".  What is this and do I need it?  I'm running V7 and I don't recall seeing it in v6.

Hi Bob

The UI watcher is necessary when Reflect is running using a different user account to the currently logged on user.  In this case there is no interaction with the users desktop, so it's responsible for launching ReflectMonitor.exe which provides the tasks bar icon and currently running backup info. It's also responsible for the Backup Start dialog.  

It's needed in v7 as scheduled tasks run using the SYSTEM account. It will also provided interaction if a backup is running for any account, this is an improvement over v6, which was silent in this case.  Aldo, Reflect monitor will cache backup information when no user is logged on and display it when logged on. If a backup started before you logged on in v6 you couldn't see it running.  You can also show ReflectMonitor by pressing Ctrl+Alt+M at any time. It will show the current or last backup details. 

Hope this helps

Kind Regards

Is there any way to disable or change the shortcut (Ctrl+Alt+M)? It interferes with other shortcuts I use on Visual Studio.

Thanks,
Pablo

Hello again Nick. I have the hotkey disabled and even though I cannot bring the monitor UI using the hotkey, the hotkey is not usable in other apps.

I only regain access to the hotkey if I kill the ReflectMonitor process.

I'm attaching the ReflectMonitor exported from my registry (maybe I have an error there).

Thank you,
Pablo

Hi 

 I have the hotkey disabled and even though I cannot bring the monitor UI using the hotkey, the hotkey is not usable in other apps.


Not sure what you mean by 'the hot key'. You've set ReflectMonitor to Ctrl+Shift+Y and disabled the open action in ReflectMonitor.  If you want to use 'Y' for a different app then choose an unused letter for ReflectMonitor. If I haven't understood your problem then can you please explain what you expect to happen.

Kind Regards

I want to use the Ctrl+Alt+M inside of Visual Studio 2017. If the ReflectMonitor process is running, I can't, if I kill it, I can. Changing the registry setting to disable the hot key, did disable it (in that I don't see the Reflect UI when I press the keys together) but didn't allow me to keep using the combination in other applications.

Thank you,
Pablo
