    i am about to create a sector by sector backup image with magicure a.k.a rollback rx installed. but before i create the image will using compression when creating the image break the backup and render the backup useless.

    i want to backup with rollback installed and keep any snapshots i created, but if i use compression when creating the image, will rollback still be working complete with snapshots after a restore ?

    ps. i forgot to add i will be using acronis true image 2012

    Image compression works fine. Remember though, you have to create the sector by sector image from the Boot CD, not from within Windows!

    You can only do the above with COLD Sector by Sector Imaging with ATIH and any other imaging software, to retain all your Rollback Rx snapshots.

    You cannot do HOT Sector by Sector Imaging with ATIH and any other imaging software besides Image For Windows (IFW).

    You can only do HOT Sector by Sector Imaging with IFW and no other imaging software and retain all your Rollback Rx snapshots.

    Best regards,

    thanks to everybody for the replies, i am aware of that it needs to COLD imaging and needs to be done from a boot CD (at least with ATI). my primary concern was that if i used compression it wouldnt work
