    Hi all.

    1)I need a good program where i can make typical full backup(copy) system partition to other disc or pendrive.

    2)And good program for replace windows snapshot when i need quick restore system to specific moment.

    In case 2 i used long time ago Rollback RX but it started do me problems with Shadow Defender.

    Im waiting for your sugestions.

    Quassar, although AX64 is an excellent snapshot/backup program... there are issues with Shadow Defender, depending on how you use that tool.

    Actually, ShadowDefender is not a true backup program.

    I would second sukarof's suggestion for InstantRecovery. If you just trial it you will be amazed by its flexibility. Also it has a Freeze feature that would do the same for you that SD did albeit not as quickly. The only issue with IR is that the more different and neater things you start doing with it, the more and more disk space you will be needing.

    Quassar, here are my thoughts...

    Having (and now using) a decent image-backup program and Shadow Defender, why do you feel you still need a snapshot program?

    If you really like SD (as I do) and wish to continue using it then please understand that AX64 is definitely incompatible with (and does not function properly with) SD's Shadow Mode!!!

    If you are willing to abandon SD, then do give AX64 a try, but test it thoroughly, including its ability to reliably restore your system (both hot & cold). If AX64 does function reliably on your system (in SD's absence of course) then imho it is the best (if not the only) truly hybrid image-backup and snapshot program there is at this time.

    But (again), as you are currently using an image-backup program and SD I can't help but wonder why the need for a snapshot program?

    SD does that very well - if the software you are installing doesn't require a restart (which is the case the majority of the time).
