What is the Technician's License?
There are two technician's licenses available:
The Standard Technician's License permits a single technician to image and restore up to 10 different servers and unlimited workstations. The Enterprise Technician's license has no restriction on the number of servers that can be imaged.
The Technician's License includes one copy of our premium software, Macrium Reflect Server Edition, for each technician together with free upgrade protection during the subscription period. This software also comes with Portable Application Support, allowing you to create a single USB stick with rescue environment that can image your target workstations online and offline.
Each Technician's License is renewed on an annual subscription basis, with a reduced subscription applying from Year 2 onwards.
The improved Macrium Reflect Technician's Edition v5 now includes:
Please note: Technician's Licenses first purchased before November 2011do not include these additions, even if they have been renewed afterthis date. Please contact us for a discounted upgrade to the newTechnician's Edition with the additional functionality.

Who might use a Technician's License?
This license arrangement is ideal for IT technicians or service companies who might maintain a large number of PCs and may wish to back them up prior to carrying out work. If they did not have the Technician's License, then every time they backed up a different PC a new copy of Macrium would need to be purchased, because the usual licensing arrangement is machine specific. Using a Technician's license allows the technician to backup or image each PC using a single Macrium Reflect license.
Typically, a technician would use the Portable Application or its accompanying PE environment to image their target workstations. This means Reflect needs only to be installed on a single PC and the Portable Application Media created.
Note: The base install of Macrium Reflect may only be installed on a single PC at a time. If you wish to move this install, you will have to uninstall and reinstall the software.
What is Portable Application Support?
Portable application support ships exclusively with Macrium Reflect Technician's Licenses. In addition to allowing you to create a bootable USB stick from which you can rescue your systems, you can also optionally add Portable Application support to your media.
This will allow you to run Macrium Reflect on your licensed PCs directly from the USB stick, without needing to install Reflect on the workstation or server first.
Reflect can then be launched from the USB stick using the file "portable.exe":
Which launches the familiar Reflect main screen. To this, we have added two notable additions:
- Notification of your expiry date, so that you know when your renewal is due. Note: On this date, your USB stick will stop working.
- An additional wizard to add drivers to the bootable environment contained on the USB stick. This allows you to have one rescue environment which works on all the workstations/server you wish to back up and restore.
