Which Rollback software do you use?
no multiple choice so...
FD-ISR classic - installed on one machine, FD-ISR server installed on one server.
Shadow User - not in use.
Rollback rx - installed on another machine.
DeepFreeze - installed on another machine.
Other - VMs, Shadow Defender - installed.
I voted FD-ISR but also use eaz-fix and rollback rx on other machines.
I have licences of FD-ISR, Rollback RX 8 and 9.
My favorite one is FD-ISR workstation.
ps1. 'DeepFreeze' and 'Shadowuser' are not instant recovery applications.
ps2. Where are 'DriveClone Pro' (Farstone) and 'BackOnTrack Suite' (Roxio)?
Ayrecovery, a 1 year trial.
Using free tool from Microsoft - Windows SteadyState.
I use FDISR- Rescue. I also use ERUNT instead of windows system restore.
i use like my sig says , eaz fix on one pc (testing software and differ setup) and in my daily work fdisr which i don't much "rollback" only use the protection for disaster situation
FirstDefense ISR and Shadow Defender both are great programs
Oops I've forgot to check option multiple choice in this poll
I am still testing Rollback softwares now i have EAZ-FIX (RB), which saved my bacon today
So I'm starting to like it more and more
What a pitty that classic FD-ISR is unavailable on the market I read many positive reviews about this legendary product.
I have licenses for DeepFreeze (not using now), ShadowUser on one machine, First Defense PC REscue (not using now), Shadow Defender and ShadowProtect on my Vista machine which combined give me very versatile recovery possibilities. I also think that only FD ISR and ROllbackRX type of applications qualify as rollback software.
Thanks, i also have Shadow Defender and SP for backup images. However when i find SP very useful, I can't say the same about SD - I don't use them since several month.
Where can I find the information about FD-ISR Classic?
I can only find information about FD-ISR Recure.
Thanks in advance.
Sadly, FD-ISR as it was is no longer available. Those who had licences from other vendors, such as Raxco, migrated to a single licence provided by Leapfrog Software, and although they can't offer support per se, updates to the program are provided every so often for these users, myself included.
Fd-isr on demand only.Normally Imaging alone is sufficient for me.
First Defense PC Rescue.
Who knows what the future may bring.
Although strictly speaking not rollback software, for day-to-day use I rely on Returnil Virtual System 2008 Premium Edition to return my system to a known state on reboot. For disaster recovery, or to restore the system to a specific point in time, I use Acronis True Image Home 11.
I think the Windows bulit-in rollback function is enough
No it isn't. It can't restore Windows at the boot level. If Windows fails to start up - you're hosed. With Rollback RX you can recover from a crash by going back in time to a state Windows last worked well. Its lot better than having to figure out how to repair a broken Windows and if that fails, a clean re-install of Windows can take hours.
Is it true that EAZ-FIX and Rollback Rx are actually the same product just labeled differently?
Eaz-Fix offers earlier version of Rollback Rx.
Which one of the two would you recommend and why?
I had a really terrible experience with Eaz-Fix 9, it completely trashed my system so I had to reinstall windows. Now I use imaging sofware, acronis on one computer and shadowprotect on the other.
I don't use Rollback software so I don't know which is the best right now on the market.
