Which one?

Macrium Reflect 4.2 build 2082, listed at as a 'purchase' application after a free trial, or

Macrium Reflect Free Edition 4.2 build 2082, free edition?

However, whichever you chose, it seems the team had problems with each, and some of the reviews were not that generous. The team also had problems installing the free edition; "Installing the program did confuse us a bit, because although it's a free program, it refers to purchasing the program, and you're given a confirmation number. On top of that, the program recommends that you view the online tutorials before getting started, but you might have some trouble deciphering them unless you speak Italian.".

Personally, I would have looked for other solutions.

Thanks Mark!
I downloaded the Macrium Reflect Free Edition 4.2 build 2082,from the Cnet link. Since it is given 4.5 stars I thought it would be a good one. Do you have a reccommendation for such a program (after a disasterious system crash I need to get some sort of recovery program}
