One of a number of problems after using LapLink to transfer data to replacement computer supplied by Dell.

Reflect 8.0 Home, licensed copy.

Macrium Reflect was transferred, but when I clicked on Scheduled Backups, not expecting to see that they had been transferred, which they were not, I get a "Macrium Service is not running," and clicking on "Start Macrium Service" the progress bar goes partway across and stops.

Wondering if there is a Macrium Service in the list of services, I checked, no such entry.

What does this mean, and what should I do about it?

I gave up, downloaded a trial version, ran the installer. Interestingly, this was shown as a registered version and my license was filled in (I had that open in my email program, assuming that I would be asked.) The installer ran for an extremely short time; were I to guess, and it is only that, my existing installation was recognized and repaired rather than replaced. That theory was reinforced, for when I opened Reflect, my backup schedules were still there.
