Edited and compiled by: TheRollbackFrog (Member, Wilders Security Forums) on 06Apr2015 (Updated: 04August2017) EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Horizon DataSys’ RollBack Rx™, a comprehensive Windows System Restore solution, is an extremely competent System protection application when all things are operating normally, but in no way is it to be considered a DATA backup solution. Due to its extremely sophisticated operating system integration, some of its DATA protection mechanisms actually may put your DATA at risk, primarily when using incompatible system management applications or while experiencing certain system failure modes. The attached document attempts to accurately discuss the incompatible system management functions as well as system failure scenarios that can put your DATA at extreme risk. The main items discussed lie in the areas of disk and partition management, external access of Rollback protected disks and partitions, Microsoft Windows Update management and disk imaging and data backup of protected disks and partitions. Hopefully this paper will assist the user in better understanding the possible vulnerabilities of using RollBack Rx™ within a complete System environment.
