    You need to re-install and select the custom install. That gives you the option of which partition to protect.

    Hi,

    As a 7.2.1 user, i would say that you can select all files and/or folders that you wish to keep after restore by activating the "keep these files ....." in the advanced settings tab (Program settings screen) and choosing what to keep in the same state as before restoration

    At restart (after restore), RollbackRx will check its snapshots and restore the changed files/folders

    Regards,

    MaB

    Another v7.2.1 user here and I use the method described by MaB - which works great... I would presume (but can't say for sure) that the same option is available in v8.1.x.

    Yes, it is in v8.1 as well and may well be a good solution. The last time I tried this facility it seemed to take a long time to restore the files but this must obviously depend upon the amount of data involved.

    As the OP seemed to want the whole partition to be kept current then excluding that partition in the first instance may be more appropriate. Nice to have options though :) .

    Yes Graham, for sure your way is the preferred method, but it would mean unistalling and reinstalling RB, which the OP may not want to do.

    Cheers

    thx for the replies,

    i will add the folder i wish to keep in those advanced settings, create a new baseline and see how it goes, and if it really does keep that part of the partition the same.
