    Sorry of this has been covered before.

    Downloaded FirstDefense to try and now I'm close to the end of my trial period. Purchased the program on CD but I got to un-install the current trial version to install the CD version. I have only one back-up Snapshot besides the primary. Whats the best way to go about doing this and not lose that back-up Snapshot?

    TIA

    If you go to the control panel to uninstall the First Defense trial, it may ask you if you want to remove the First Defense program or remove First Defense completely. If you choose the first option, the snapshots should be there when you install the paid version.

    You may want to wait for other opinions to be on the safe side.

    Theres no other way of doing it. uninstall, choose to remove program only. ive done that too many times, snapshots always remain.

    or to be sure, you can always export your snapshots to another drive/partition. or image the drive/partition. if you want to be extra extra sure.

    Ronjor and Dina are right.
    When I downloaded FDISR, I took first an image backup of system partition, before I installed FDISR as a precaution.
    After installing FDISR + second snapshot, I took an image backup again, because I had another reason to do this.
    I wanted to know if ATI was able to restore an image with or without FDISR over a system partition with or without FDISR or even a complete blank system partition and without having MBR-troubles.
    ATI did it correctly in each combination.
