I have read the file backup instructions. I would like to know if it is possible to save incremental file and folder backups in a standard file format rather than an image file?

Not directly using Reflect alone, but you can mount a Reflect image as a drive which can be "explored" like any other and/or you can restore the image's contents in their original format to some other location.

Following on in this post, the user guide explains that you can open a backup by clicking on the mrbak file from Windows Explorer, which works OK.  However it does require Macrium to be installed on the PC for this to work!  I would like to backup to an external drive and then explore the mrbak file on a PC that does not have Macrium installed.  Is there an executable (e.g. a read only version) that I can also copy onto the external drive that will allow me to open the mrbak file.

I am aware of no standalone executable capable of handling the *.mrbak and *.mring file formats other than the Macrium Reflect application itself and its WinPE "rescue" builds.  You may be able to use one or the other to access that other computer's external drive (via a network connection, for example).  If not, assuming that you do not have a technician's license with portable application support, I can only suggest a second licensed Reflect installation.

We currently do not offer a stand alone application that will mount Reflect image files. However if you do not have access to a technician's license then you should be able to mount your images using the Free Edition.


Kind regards
