    My copy won't run at all due to old EXPIRED BETA key somewhere in REGISTRY... any help, greatly appreciated (sent note to <info@ax64.com> on release date... no reply as of yet).

    Timmy I'm trying out AX64 and I too have Privazer. Can you tell me where those files are so I don't make the same mistake as you. Thanks

    last time this happened to me i had to use regdelnull to del the hidden key then reboot and i was able to reinstall. this only happened one time and i did not have to do it again after that not sure why.

    Doesn't happen often, but lucked out that the new 10 weeks beta version from Mr. Waj installed without diff on the machine here, and so far seems to to be working very well. Can see they made some improvements and made it better, but can't put my finger on just what. You no longer have to put the Windows disk into the machine in order to create the pre boot option, now the program will fetch it from the internet by itself, did see that. See also in his description that "Restore failed error: -99968" - which I got several times before, they noticed it also and have said it's now fixed, that's great. rgds

    In the Privazer, there is an option to allow that program to "clean" the master file table. If youi Uncheck that option, at least you should not run into problem I did. But, in my option for whatever it's worth, better still just to ditch the Privazer.

    Gave the new public beta a short test run, got mixed results...

    System specs:
    5 year old notebook, MBR based (no UEFI, no GPT)
    Win7 Professional 64 bit
    2 partitions (System C:, Data D plus the hidden system partition


    Backups worked fine
    Warm restore also worked, but a little slow (slower than Macrium RDR)
    Rescue Media creation also no problem.

    Bare Metal Restore to a completely wiped HDD resulted in a non-bootable Windows.


    Please can someone enlighten me what has been changed with the warm backup routine...
    It looks absolutely the same as the routine from the last stable build 528, it integrates itself into the BCD store. Has it really been moved to the "Native APP" point in the boot process? If it has, I sure cannot see it.


    Cheers

    Mab... it's gonna be quite a while before they head into the NATIVE APP area for implementaion of WARM restore. All they're doing at the moment is solidifying the current version. The NATIVE APP approach is a major undertaking and is not for the faint of heart :doubt:

    Hi Zach

    There is nothing you can do with the MFT, it is part of the disk structure. You were advised correctly, ditch privazer, it is dangerous. They told me I could safely leave all the options on. Thank goodness for a good image. I would also advise this isn't the time to play with AX64, unless you are equiped to recover from disaster. It isn't ready for prime time.

    Pete

    Slightly off topic but what's the link between Privazer, which I find excellent so far and Time Machine V2 ? Why this negative warning about privazer ? Has someone experienced first hand a filesystem corruption using privazer ? Thanks.

    No joy on the use of RegDelNull... it only found 1-key that belonged to Microsoft... I didn't delete it.

    Tried Instant Recovery. Didn't care to much for it. What's comparable to Rollback RX

    I'm not sure anything is. The next step on many of our journeys is Macrium Reflect v6 (if you haven't tried it already).

    IFW and the new Macrium v6 are very different beasts. While both can easily and reliably image your system, Macrium now uses a Rapid Data Restore feature which restores recent incrementals very, very quickly... basically like AX64 Time Machine except a bit faster.

    Oh yes ! A restore that failed and left my system broken with a boot menu I couldn't get rid of, and very often, backups freeze before completion. The only fix is to recreate a full image. This is very annoying. I am using the latest stable versions.

    Actually it is AOMEI Backupper Pro that saved the situation.... Even if I am sure Macrium Reflect would have.

    I have been using Time Machine version 1.4.1.48 hot restores as a Rollback Rx replacement for the past 18 months with very few problems, but it does not work for everybody.
