- drliu1202 thinks Reboot Restore Rx is an alternative to Rollback Rx
- TBayAreaPat Downvoted a comment on Rollback RxTBI have been using Rollback RX for several years and it has really been an amazing piece of restoration software. It has saved me countless hours of grief and frustration. I have had corrected very severe problems such as bad updates, viruses, malware, BSOD, boot loops and other situations that would normally require me to use a full backup which takes hours to re-install. With Rollback RX, I simply selected a snapshot from the day before my problem existed and within 15 minutes I am back up like nothing ever happened. It's the closest thing to "Magic" that I know of. It's also very easy to use with virtually no learning curve...my 70yr old father got a copy of it from my recommendation and didn't have to call me to ask for any help to set it up and restore!
- TBayAreaPat Upvoted a comment on Rollback RxTBNO NO NO, it seems like a good idea, basically is a more broad Windows default System Restore, and is fast, the big-huge problem is that it blows up SSDs like it was no tomorrow, the snapshots make hardrive not delete ("free") data sectors until there's no information of it on the snapshot, so it can recover delete files etc, the big problem with this is that TRIM command that is essential for an SSD lifetime is blocked, SSD will only be allowed to write on free space that was already free on the snapshot, and in every new snapshot, less and less of this cells are availabre so SSDs drivers will die very very fast. Another fact is that it won't save your data from drive failure too, so also it's not a real backup solution!
When installing some new software, Rollback Rx gives me the possibility to roll back, Only have to restart my PC and roll back in seconds ! The advantage is that there are no traces from the new software left. So I can try new software and when I don t want to keep it, I roll back and my PC is not poluted !
This product has given me the ability to effect a fast recovery of files with just a couple of key strokes. I used to rely on GoBack, a great product on its own back on the days. I believe tha Roll Back Rx surpasses it completely. I can recommend it without hesitation.
DO NOT USE ON SSD DRIVES!
While RollBackRx works a lot better than system restore (with features like rolling back in under a minute to being able to rollback at boot before windows even loads) it does have one massive drawback:
i booted up to find RBRx defragmenting my SSD - not a TRIM a defragment. This all happened in the boot phase before Windows was even loaded so it was not possible for the Windows Kernek to manage what was happening to the drive.
Documentation gives absolutely no help to find out why a defragment is needed on an SSD (i suspect it is not but the software doesn't differentiate between SSD and HDD.
It would be interesting to hear your alternative choice. Yep, the program is still doing that defrag by default. AND, the program messed my boot and install.. It said there wasn't enough room for the backup and cycled me thru repair cycles, so I bit the bait and took the option to Uninstall even tho there was a message that it could mess the system. Stopped booting so I switched to a backup drive and tried to tweak it from their with Error checking and Testdisk program. Teskdisk and some others show that the drive misrepresents space now & I can't correct it. Windows won't repair the drive because it's in a different format than its beginning.
I've been meaning to force my old system to try Windows 11 .. so I guess I'm motivated to update now.

last comment seen on issue May 25, 2018 Avoid to use RX on a SSD drive, RX doesn't allow the TRIM function. now you have the turn off tray icon option, so you can TRIM your SSD (reboot first) but it will merge all your snapshots.

There is no doubt that this software is highly rated but all users. Of course nothing is ever perfect but the benefits of being able to rollback to an older snapshot or restore point as though all your files travelled back in time is amazing. Partner this together with it's ability to recover you from any infection such as the likes of Ransomewares / Ransomware then you can't go wrong. Did I mention it is also for free?? I have now moved on to the pro version because I love the unlimited snapshot options and also I can set automated tasks on Rollback and I don't have to worry about it anymore and let it fly on it's own.
