    I'm looking for some roll-back software which works on Win7.64 and RAID.

    The latest Roxio BackOnTrack Suite works fine with Raid on 7x64.

    You can buy a discounted version here.

    You can roll backward and forward and delete single snapshots.

    Can those back-ups/snapshots be copied/exported and/or imported ??

    I do not know. But when I take an image with IFW all af them remain intact.

    They are stored in "C:\System Rollback Data\" as normal files/folders. It is like an hybrid of Rollback-RX and FD-ISR(without the multi OS ability).
    Multiple snapshots, ability to remove them all together or one by one, rolling back and forth without the downsides of Rollback-RX.

    Since "FirstDefense-ISR"/"FirstDefense-Rescue" are out of the scene Roxio BackOnTrack Suite is for me the best ISR available; much better than Rollback-RX (and clones), FarStone Snapshot, etc.

    You're reading my mind...
    :D Outstanding !!
    Hhmm: so copy and save is an option.
    Might be 'over-complicating' in an effort to try and recreate some functions of FDISR ??
    Ya, can see why so far.
    FDISR :'( ..talked it to death, like losing a limb :doubt:

    Have you tested in a VM or on native system install test bed ??
    How big are these snapshots ??

    Yes it is. But since you can image it and the snapshots remain intact why bother?
    Not, so complicated.
    It is fully compatible with FD-ISR and Linux installations.
    Imagine to have Windows XP,Vista and 7 on the same partition (FD-ISR) and each of them to have their multiple snapshots (B-O-T).:D
    Native on my laptop with Windows 7.
    Minimum 125-127mb.
    If you install a program and take a snapshot its size would be "the size of the program modifications" + "125-200 mb".
    Examples:
    Vmware workstation snapshot= 1.72 Gb
    Nero 10 snapshot = 1.90 Gb

    The only drawback is that the installations take more time (I guess because of B-O-T monitoring).
    Almost 0 impact during normal use.:)
    Another pro is that since it is not sector based it does not have any problem with defraggers.

    Restoration time:
    - 2-3 minutes to load the WinPE recovery enviroment.
    - minimum restoration time about 5-10 seconds. The time of restoration is proportional to the amount of data that need to be removed/restored. On this laptop it takes about 1 minute for 1 Gb.

    Overall a great ISR. :thumb:

    RollbackRx works great on my Win 7 64 bit Raid system. Very fast and does not use much disk space. You can also recover individual files with it. The original FD-ISR also works, but you can't buy it any more.

    You need to have a good backup imaging program also. I use ShadowProtect for it's speed but I have also heard good things about IFW.
