    Is there any program out there that can restore a backup without a reboot? Guessing no.

    You can't write over the system files that are in use. A full system restore isn't possible while running that system. There are some partial backups of files that can be restored, from within the running system, as long as you shut down the files that are being restored.

    If you are thinking about restoring the entire drive, and if it's a system drive, then obviously no.
    Non system drives can normally be restored just fine.

    Yes, there is.

    AXTM64

    Check it out at: http://www.ax64.com/

    It won't, however, do a bare metal restore withoout a reboot. If you just want to go back in time, it works perfectly.

    Exactly right I was just reading about AV64 Time Machine and that one restores in Windows whatever file is newer without using a restore environment.
