    Hi guys and gals,
    I have RBRX on all my computers and it seems sometimes i'll go to reboot and then chkdsk starts and then a ton of files get deleted and then recovered why is this happening?

    I don't think RB has anything to do with Chkdisk, or deleting a ton of files. It's working with snapshots. Periodically it will defrag the snapshots, but otherwise it just sits there unless you tell it to do something. What ton of files are you referring to?:)

    System files and from what I can tell (it's going so fast) some personal files as well...one thing I hate about RBRX is...if you ever have to do a hard reboot every dang time it will say "improper shutdown" then go to chkdsk and that's also when this happens and then my files get deleted then recovered (orphan files it says).

    OK I can relate to doing a hard reboot and getting the chkdsk thing. FWIW I have gotten that before I installed RB as well.

    My computer has started chkdsk a few times on its own, but has never deleted files to my knowledge. Occasionally I will purposely do a chkdsk if my computer starts acting funny, and do either the short check for errors or the long check sectors too.

    If you have O & O imaging installed, you'll get that persistent disk check. Drop O & O, and go with another imaging program, and your problem goes away. At least that was my experience.

    You don't have to drop O&O, just change the priority in the UpperFilters.

    Can you post what is in your UpperFilters?

    Programs like O&O, Jetico BestCrypt and others conflict with Rollback Rx. Of course, the folks at Rollback Rx won't tell you. I had to find out the hard way.

    Here is the location of UpperFilters in the registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\
    Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    This is the first I am hearing. I have used all imaging programs without any problems.

    Programs with low level drivers such as O&O Disk Image, Jetico Best Crypt and others conflict with Rollback Rx, but there is always a work around.

    The other imaging programs doesn't create any problems.

    Lucky you, one workaround is to use their Boot CDs for backup or restoration.

    No luck.

    You can use any imaging program to do HOT Normal backup within Windows. It will capture your most current snapshot of Rollback Rx.

    If you want to HOT back within Windows and want to capture all snapshots of Rollback Rx, then you can use Image For Windows (IFW) with following:

    1. Have the IFW lower filter above the Rollback Rx lower filter.
    2. Do sector to sector imaging.


    Need more help, please let me know.

    Best regards,

    I'm told unless you're using IFW you have to uninstall RB and then do you're image, and then re-install. Version 10 is expected to work together with Drive Cloner Rx when it comes out also.

    This is absolutely not true. This issue has been beaten to death. Do a search on this forum.

    Do you remember me?

    Remember, the Christmas Present?

    You can use any imaging program, and this includes Image For Windows (IWF), while Rollback Rx is installed in Windows to do a Normal HOT Imaging. This will capture the current snapshot of Rollback Rx.

    However, IFW is special. If the lower filter of IFW is above the lower filter of Rollback Rx, then:

    1. If the Rollback Rx is installed in Windows, and you do a Normal HOT Imaging, then it will capture the baseline snapshot of Rollback Rx. Very dangerous situation.

    2. If the Rollback Rx is installed in Windows, and you do a Sector to Sector HOT Imaging, then it will capture all the snapshots of Rollback Rx, including the baseline and current snapshots. ALL the snapshots of Rollback Rx.

    LOL, I am doing fine. Was away for a while, playing with my Phones (Samsung S3 and Samsung Note II) and Tablets (Nexus 7 and Nexus 10).
