    Yes, uninstall RB, then defrag C:, then reinstall RB instructing it (during install) to protect C: only.

    o_O?? I thought Rx would only protect one drive/partition. Is it actually 1 drive and whatever partitions on that drive you tell it to protect?

    Dumb question I guess since thats whats been said above,,,,,

    By the way, for anyone considering getting Rx and who are undecided......It is one awesome program. I have been using it for some 6 months now and it has not failed me once and has caused no problems on my PC. And I have used it to roll back my system as well as to recover files fairly often.

    The only part of it I have not tested is the imaging function but I use other programs (in addition to this function of RX) that I am confident in so I am not concerned about this........Has anyone used the imaging function (either the current stand alone program or the one thats is part of the previous version of RX). Just curious. I suspect if Rx is so good the imager is probably excellent as well.

    No.

    You can tell it to protect multiple drives/partition during the program install.:D

    It can protect all or part of your primary hard drive, so if you have multiple partitions on that drive it can protect all, some, or just one (of course protecting multiple partitions will result in larger snapshots). RB (EF) can not protect any additional physical drives.

    Got it, good to know. I am on my first install of Rx and I just accepted the defaults as the install progressed so I missed that. Next time I will pay closer attention.

    Has anyone done restores with the companion imaging program?
