I have Macrium Reflect Free v8.0.7279 installed and ‘Check for updates’ results in ‘No updates available’ (see photo) but website Macrium Reflect Free (Windows) shows ‘Macrium Reflect Free v8.1.7544’ available for download. I suspect this is a mistake and it is a paid-for version but does anyone know for sure?

That link is a repackage of the full paid installer.

If you choose free in the installer you get the following.

So no there is no such thing as 8.1 free.

Thank you both. I'll stick with my current Free version for now.
I want to support Macrium but their latest (very expensive) pricing is putting me off paying for the product for now.
I'll wait and look what is on offer on Black Friday.
