Re: Introducing AX64 Time Machine - hybrid imaging/snapshot software

This is more or less correct. It is not a big issue unless you are hoping to have all your snaps and a functioning Rx upon completion of the restore. This is because both the snaps and the heart of Rx & its console are hidden from Windows and will not be part of the AX64 back-up set. To get Rx working again all that is needed is to reinstall Rx as you would normally. Sometimes when you do this you will need to delete a file called shield (under programs), sometimes it will install over shield with no problem (yes, Rx can be quirky). I have done this a few times with no problem as tests to make sure it worked. FYI, this is the case regardless of which imaging program you use except for IFW (if done as Froggie has outlined elsewhere) including Rxs sister program Drive Cloner.
