Backup is a powerful tool in ensuring the reliability and performance of IT equipment.

Why use the Macrium Reflect Technician's License?

With a Macrium Reflect Technician's License, IT maintenance and support engineers can put the power of Macrium Reflect's backup engine in their pocket - on a USB stick.

This is useful because it gives engineers the ability to use Macrium Reflect without having to install it on a target workstation or server. Reflect can simply be run from a USB stick.

With a bootable rescue environment included, the Technician's License also makes it possible to repair and restore computers that won't boot.

How does the Technician's License work?

The Technician's License licenses one technician to use the USB/ISO based portable application to image and recover an unlimited number of servers and workstations.

The license also includes a perpetual, single install of Macrium Reflect Server with free upgrade protection and technical support during the subscription period.


With a Technician's License you can add Macrium Reflect to a USB stick and carry the power of its backup engine in your pocket.


Perform maintenance and provide technical support with confidence by backing up data without ever installing Macrium on target machines.


By combining portability with reliability, you can ensure that users can get back to using their equipment quickly.

"It was great having Macrium as a comfort blanket and I could be sure that, should I need to, I could get back any data that has been lost. I can dig around to my heart's content without worrying!"

How is the Technician's License different from the Deployment Kit?

The Macrium Reflect Technician's License and Macrium Reflect are similar - many users ask us about the differences between the two. However, there are some important differences:

The Technician's License for a single technician; the deployment kit licences 5 technicians.

The Deployment Kit covers wide scale deployment (ie. restoring a golden image to multiple computers). The Technicians License, meanwhile, covers restore to the same computer or its replacement.
