Can Macrium Reflect be used on all other PCs beside Mac computers?

Macrium Reflect is for Windows Only, no MAC version of that software. The MR boot CD may work on a MAC though, never tried it. – Moab Apr 14 '11 at 15:37

Firstly, disclaimer: I'm a developer for Macrium, so I have a slight (!) advantage answering this question.

The Reflect product itself can be installed on the operating systems described in CGA's answer both in 32 and 64-bit editions. However, recovery can be run from our rescue CDs on any system that supports MBR or UEFI booting - that is, most systems there are :) Windows systems can then be recovered from these images.

Whilst Reflect cannot be run on general purpose Linux systems, one of our Rescue CD formats is Linux-based, and we can image ext4 partitions from Windows (and therefore recover them from a recovery disk, or from Windows).

Contrary to the name of our company, Reflect does not run on Mac OS/OS X platforms at this time - Apple has already produced Time Machine which can perform full system backups for Mac platforms.

XP, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2003 and Server 2008. 32 and native 64 Bit.
