    I read a lot about rollback rx lately so i decided to give it a go and I installed it.

    It takes longer for rollback to rollback to a snapshot (3 mins) than it takes my pc to reboot (desktop-to-desktop).. 1.5 mins

    I thought rollback was fast ?- I read something like 10 secs or something like that

    Maybe I am doing something wrong here ?

    Hi, I don't think you're doing anything wrong. :) I have both rollback rx and eaz-fix and either one slow the boot time some.My times are similar to yours.
    Creating a snapshot is where the speed is though, just a few seconds.
    Hope this helps,tim

    Hi,


    I really thought the software was quick when "rollingback" :(

    Version 9 should be out very soon.hopefully it will be faster.

    Rolling back will always take longer than a snapshot because it needs to reset/check the pointers that it stores, etc. when rolling back.

    Compared to Go Back the time Rollback Rx takes is minute...believe me! :D

    On Scheduled tasks > Add > select task > Take snapshot
    and Scheduled type > Restart (PC)

    For Rollback; use home keystroke and select...
