    FDISR-Rescue is a stripped down version of the workstation version. The workstation version is no longer for sale by anyone.

    FirstDefense-ISR Rescue and FirstDefense-ISR Server are the current versions. Afaik FirstDefense-ISR Rescue is limited to one secondary snapshot. The server version will work on winxp, but it's expensive.

    Hi,
    I'm interested in maybe buying FD-ISR Rescue, but what do you mean here?
    Thanks. :)

    FDISR and FDISR Rescue have an unique way to restore a system partition.
    It compares your actual system partition with a healthy secondary snapshot and during that comparision,
    1. It adds objects that disappeared in the actual system partition
    2. It removes objects that were added in the actual system partition
    3. It replaces objects that have changed in the actual system partition.
    After that comparision (copy/update) your actual system partition = the healthy secondary snapshot.
    No other boot-to-restore ISR-software uses that method.

    The question is : "What can you do more with a secondary snapshot, compared with other ISR-softwares ?" I can't answer that question, because I never tested FDISR Rescue myself and I'm not very enthousiastic to do so. :)

    FDISR Workstation could make up to ten bootable snapshots, and it could make archives of snapshots, and one snapshot could be frozen. FDISR Rescue can only make one bootable snapshot that can't be frozen, and no archives - so that's one alternative boot image for immediate recovery. I wouldn't discourage you from trying it. That is the main FDISR functionality, after all. The rest can be accomplished in other ways, especially considering all the functionality you already have with Ghost.

    Thanks for telling me abut this. I've been reading their documentation over there at HDS and I guess everything I've read was out of date because I never saw this. I just confirmed it with online support chat. I was leaning toward buying FD-ISR Rescue, but now I'm leaning toward Rollback RX or maybe nothing.

    THis is the same question you asked in the new thread which I moved to Software and services. Please continue there, although a search of the forum shows this has been discussed thoroughly.

    To answer the threads question. Actually neither. It is from LeapfrogSoftware, the developer.

    PLease confine any further discussion if any is needed to that narrow issue.

    Thanks Pete
