Hi, I tried out RSS Free for a few days a little while ago. Now I would like it to be a permanent part of my setup, but with the file protection feature. So I need to move to a pro version. I would like to ask a few questions before moving to installing Returnil (RVS pro or RSS pro) on a Windows 7 SP1 system I have just recently reinstalled. 1. The System Restore/File Recovery function in RSS Pro. The Reurnil FAQ on this states: The File Recovery feature is an option that allows the user to restore files from a previous machine state. In other words, when you perform a Full System restore through the RSS GUI, Windows, or another program, RSS will recognize this and will keep track of the state your System was in just prior to said restore and allows you to "undo" that restore for selected files on the System partition The operative words here are: allows the user to restore files from a previous machine state... "undo" that restore for selected files on the System partition. I believe I understand the concept here: the system restore will have taken many files - usually system files, not user files - to a previous time. On some of these files, if I want to undo the restore RSS pro will allow me to restore them to the machine state just prior to doing the restore - in other words to bring them forward to the present - or to some other chosen time perhaps. My questions on this are: a. In what scenarios would this feature be applied by a user? Is it likely to be useful to anyone who knows little about all the system files and settings a system restore handles. Is it perhaps designed to "undo" configuration settings for a program which have gone back to a previous time because of the system restore? b. Is a system restore point an exact snapshot of a system within the limited framework of the registry and file extensions and system files it handles? (I realise it is not a full system image of C, and excludes user files for example). In other words is each system restore point an independent and complete record of the time - and not dependent on other restore points? c. To carry out its file recovery option is the RSS system restore feature constantly monitoring and updating changed system restore relevant files? (I assume this monitoring must be the case - unless I have totally missed the point of it all!) Does it perhaps monitor files beyond the files relevant to a system restore? 2. Free vs Pro Version Downloads - REL13/REL14 My next question arises out of various threads on this forum covering some problems users are having with RSS pro REL 14. I therefore tried RSS Free REL 13 on my system, managing to download it from afterdawn.com. I do not want to try out REL14 till the problems on it are sorted out. My questions are: a. Is the freeware download for RSS the same as the pro - I cannot find a specific REL13 pro download on the web. Will the Free version of REL13 simply convert to pro - or is it a specific separate download for the pro version. If this is so where can I download it? b. As far as is known does RVS pro REL14 share the same problems as RSS pro REL14. If in the end I do decide to go for RVS, where could I download REL13? Btw. I loved the product, and look forward to working with it permanently . Thank you.
