    Hi,

    I seldom open new threads but I could not understand why there are so many Rollback RX threads that are taking over the forum (see attached screenshot).
    This program is not an disk imaging software, not a backup software, and I don't really think it's a software for disk management. So why there are so many Rollback RX threads in this forum?

    Personally I see a lot more disadvantages of using such kind of "mirroring-reflection" type of software, not to mention the potential danger associated with messing up the MBR. I have never and will never use such type of software which only give you false sense of security.


    Regards,
    oliverjia

    Well... the Forum Section is called "Backup, Imaging & Disk Management," and clearly Rollback would be considered in the DISK MANAGEMENT class.

    I'm not sure where else it would go...

    Really?

    Disk management? I think typical disk management software should be able to "manage" disk/partitions. Such software includes GParted, Paragon Hard Disk Manager, Acronis disk director, Minitool partition wizard and the like. I don't see Rollback RX being one of their likes.

    well although IMHO I don't think Rollback RX belongs here at all, I do acknowledge that there are users in here who would like to see information and discuss Rollback Rx. I think it might be a good idea to have all these Rollback Rx threads merged into one. That way it will also be easier for folks who use Rollback RX to find a place discuss.

    And Mods please delete this thread once you agree and merge all Rollback RX threads.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    There are too many duplicated threads now just to ask a question when there are already open threads about the topic.

    THis is true, but lets let this thread die. It's being addressed, and this just ends up being another thread for nothing

    I don't want to contribute too much to this, but while I appreciate everyone that people make many threads on here, the quickest way to get a response is by email or PM on here. Many users on here do so, and if you need help with our product, it might be easier to email myself, submit a support ticket, or make a post on our own forum (where Sam oversees things).

    Point is, you're right, there doesn't need to be too many thread. This is not your only resource for support. Your questions, comments, and concerns are always welcome on the various other channels! :)

    Cheers,
