    I use Vista system restore, but wondered if there's anything better and more secure, something like EAZ-Fix, which is Freeware?

    I own Acronis Trueimage, but I have my entire hard drive encrypted with TrueCrypt, so whenever I need to do a back, I must do a raw image backup and restore which takes a very long time...so rolling back and quickly restoring using something like EAZ-Fix is a better way for me.

    So is there anything like EAZ-Fix that is FREEWARE?

    Thank you.

    Only thing I can think of is Comodo Time Machine, which is discontinued. I don't know if it'll work for your system though.

    No, sorry. I know older versions of Farstone Recovery had a snapshot feature, but that wasn't free.

    I'm pretty sure it has been discontinued.

    Check out Keriver 1-Click Restore Free. I use the Pro version which is only $20 and I believe its a lifetime license.

    Keriver's products are no ISR.
    But they are good backup softwares, nonetheless!
    I am using Keriver Image (1-Click Restore big brother) with FD-isr and they do each their duty.

    How is Microsoft's SteadyState different from the system restore and where can I get it?

    From MS:

    "Windows SteadyState will be phased out effective December 31, 2010. Microsoft will no longer support Windows SteadyState after June 30, 2011.

    Windows SteadyState helps you keep shared computers in a school computer lab, an Internet café, a library, or even your home running the way that you want them to, even when many people regularly use them."
