I have upgraded to Macrium Reflect 7 and have been using it for about a week to do daily backups of my PC system and data drives to a Freenas drive. I've entered my Windows 10 login name and password into Macrium Reflect and created scheduled xml files. Everything is running fine but after about a week I suddenly receive warnings that Macrium is trying to write the instructions for Reflect UIWatcher and Reflect Disk Imager to my startup file. (I have a utility that warns me when anything changes in the startup.) These are "run once" commands but they appear every few days but not every day. Can anyone throw any light on this please ?

 

Thanks for any insight

I don't think it's anything to worry about. I would let Macrium do what it wants to do.

Thanks JohnC_21. Wasn't worried about it, just annoyed by the intermittent nag.

Macrium upgrades quite often.

Macrium uses the Windows task scheduler.  Your monitor is probably catching these.  See if you can exlude them, they are harmless.

Thanks everyone. I've cured it by going back to v 6
