Some great deals...
i took advantage of the promo to get Rollback RX at a killer price.
So I'm going to try this and defensewall which is a sandbox/HIPS program. Anything I should know about running a sandbox and rollback together? Are there any maintenance issues I should be made aware of (defrag, backups, program updates, etc)?
There should be no conflict between these programs.
ones that comes to mind after reading threads here @ Wilders is that it is better to uninstall RX if you ever want to defrag your hard drive.
not a problem for me since i defrag once every 2-3 months...
Actually with v9 you can just use the defragger command switch which would allow you to defrag without uninstalling Rollback RX but you would lose all your previous snapshots just like doing an uninstall (its just another option). But as you stated moon it is still recommended that your uninstall even Rollback RX Horizon Datasys states this.
So when a person uninstalls all prior snapshots are lost? Is there any way to save them? I assume it's recommended to defrag and do all the maintenance jobs prior to installing RollbackRX.
No there is no way currently to save them. They are working on a solution which is going to be in Rollback RX 10.
you can do a "sector by sector" image to save all snapshots.
that's info i gathered on the official Rollback RX forum.
Rollback Rx has a Built-in SnapShot Defrag Tool.
You can run this Tool either
-from the Sub-console (i.e. Reboot your PC, press the 'Home' key, and enter a Menu) or
-from within Windows (i.e. Click/Right-Click on the Rollback Rx Tray Icon and go to Advanced Tasks >Snapshot Defragmenter)
OK so I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit. I should disable whatever built in defragger/ scheduled defrags Windows 7 has running? Anything else besides the defrag need to be killed?
Run ONLY the Built-in Defrag Tool
when using Instant System Recovery (ISR) software
like Rollback Rx, EAZ-FIX, AyRecovery, Comodo Time Machine etc.
turn off: defrag, defender, system restore
thanks for the info
