    hey guys, i'm trialing rollback rx- i notice that both partitions on my disk are "protected" and i don't see a way to configure this. i only want to protect the c: partition, not the second one, which is for data- is there a way to choose, or does rollback protect all partitions on the disk without giving you a choice?

    thanks in advance

    when you first install rollback choose i believe custom and select the drives to protect.i dont know of a way to change it now as you have it installed already but maybe someone else will know.

    Uninstall and then re-install as custom, as suggested above by brihy1.

    thanks for the tips gents- i gave it a try but uninstalled it after a short while- everything on my system seemed to slow down a little, which i didnt like- does rollback use virtualization in some manner? an interesting program, nonetheless.

    I find it nec to uninstall and reinstall monthly to maintain my PC performance. I am doing this not just for Rx but to also do my PC maintenance (defrag drive etc). This and you must defrag the snapshots on a regular basis to keep the speed up. Personally I am willing to put up with a bit of "inconvenience" for the awesome protection Rx provides.

    Hi All, I have become interested in possibly trying Rollback rx. I had FDISR on my XP computer and miss it, so maybe Rollback can fill the requirement. Does anyone know of a deal on a cheaper cost for Rollback rx? Although it may be worth it, $69 is a little steep. :)

    TWL845, Rollback's sister clone, EAZ-FIX, I think is only about $45.
