    Hi, I'm after some rollback software I've looked through these very forums and there seems to be a few to choose from.

    I have Try & Decide from Acronis but that doesn't persist through a reboot, I'm after something that will protect me when a certain program needs to reboot in order to complete installation, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I tried Shadowuser but couldn't get it to work (the error 0 message) tried disabling everything but it didn't want to know.

    Thanks.

    RollBack Rx will do what you want. What you would do is take a snapshot just before you try the new program and then if you don't want to keep it simply revert to the snap. I have been using RB for about a month now and am very happy with it however there are a few things you should be aware of to avoid problems, if you follow these you should have no problems with Rollback RX (or at least will cut down on the probability of having problems to a large degree).

    PS: if you decide to purchase RollBack you can get a 20% discount from http://aroundtheclockcomputerrepair.com/products.htm

    The publishers website can be found at http://www.rollbacksoftware.com/

    I hope this helps.

    PS: I have no association with either Horizon Data Systems or the page linked to for the discount,,,,other than as a happy customer that is.

    I see in some of the screenshots on the RX site that it protects more than one drive, is it possible to select only one drive (or partition) as I only need drive C protecting?

    Hi there

    It will protect your C: drive by default unless you tell it otherwise. :D

    I agree with what bgoodman4 says but, to be completely in the picture) you may also want to take a look at EAZ-FIX (at http://www.eazsolution.com/). This and Rollback Rx are essentially the same product but just marketed by different organisations...although with the latest version they seem to be diverging slightly.

    As to which is better...that is a hard one. I would say they are the same and it really goes down to the deal that you can get them for...but there are a lot of posts on the subject if you search for them, ie,
