Rollback Rx Reviews

Interesting History!

about Rollback Rx and Comodo Time Machine · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

What started off with Norton GoBack eventually became Ez-Fix (if you're like me and you remember these two, you're older than dirt haha).

RollBack came onto my radar when I heard the developers of these programs were working on a new program. I bought a license in 2010, and I've been using it since.

Works very well with their disk imager, Drive Cloner. I use the two in conjunction and it works very well.

Only real complaint I have is that with some Windows 10 updates I've had to uninstall it first. I've had to do this twice, and while it's not Horizon DataSys' fault, it's still frustrating. So here's hoping they iron this out soon!

Otherwise, perfect program and recommend for backup and testing purposes.

Software Review

about Rollback Rx · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

When LV protection is activated, the user has to manually commit any changes they want to keep for the next Windows session. If a program has been installed while LV protection is active, and that program needs a reboot in order for it to work, the user must commit all disk changes before rebooting. If the user simply reboots the system, then the new installation will be completely undone, along with any other changes that may have occurred in the meantime.

It is important to understand that committing changes to the real disk with Light Virtualization apps is a one-way-street. Once changes have been committed in this manner, the only way to go back to a previous disk state will be by restoring a conventional backup, assuming of course that a full backup of the disk has already been performed in advance. Or you can use Instant Recovery/Snapshot software for super-fast recoveries, and that's where Rollback RX comes in to play here today. There aren't many such programs around. Instant Recovery software is a very rare breed of program indeed, and Rollback RX is currently the best developed and most stable amongst them. The greatest benefit of Rollback RX is that it allows users to accumulate changes to the system across several reboots, something that Light Virtualization apps cannot do. With Rollback RX users can create different software setups, which can then be saved as new snapshots at any time. Any of these snapshots can be restored in mere seconds, as and when needed. This enables users to go backwards and forwards in the time-line of their systems, switching between saved snapshots at will.

Rollback Rx v10.2

Haven't lost any files ever since I have installed this program. Before, I had to reformat and reinstall Windows due to malware and other viruses entering my system (despite having AV and anti-malware programs installed). Beats any virus or botchy/badly installed programs by recovering your computer on reboot.

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 !

Rollback RX Has Saved Me Hours of Time and Money

about Rollback Rx · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

I 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!

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.

I started out with Goback several years ago and it served me well. That product is obsolete now and I stumbled upon Rollback RX. Truly an amazing piece of software. A snap shot takes about 10-15 seconds and if you should need to restore, a reboot into Rollback restores your system in the same amount of time.Rollback RX is now my primary restoration choice, with Acronis disk images as a back up. Give the trial a try. You'll be amazed at what it can do. Max

Next Step Up From GoBack

about Rollback Rx and Comodo Time Machine, Deep Freeze · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

Me and my Dad used to use GoBack, when that stopped being supported we looked for a few alternatives. For a while we used Comodo Time Machine and even Deep Freeze; all great programs but not exactly what I wanted as a GoBack alt. We eventually found RollBack Rx, we both use the freeware version and find it's really nice, simple, and easy to use.

NO 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!

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.

Awesome Program

about Rollback Rx · · Helpful Not helpful

My wife and I used Comodo Time Machine on our computers for such a long time, but when it came time to upgrade to Windows 10 we found that Comodo Time Machine didn't support the OS, and that overall support had ended a while ago.

I found this program through my online research, and now my wife and I use RollBack Rx Home Edition (the free one) on our machines. I know it doesn't have all the features of the paid version, but for what we're looking for it's great. It's everything I loved about CTM and more.

Hey guys,

CTM had a feature to restore previous files from crashed snapshots. I can't find that function on RollBack Rx. Any Ideas?

Comodo Time Machine OEM RollBack Rx

about Rollback Rx and Comodo Time Machine · · Helpful Not helpful

I've been a long time user of Comodo Time Machine (CTM)... until Comodo left the product to pasture. Not updates etc. After chatting with some users on the comodo forums, I found out that CTM is an OEM of RollBack Rx and that the original manufactures are Horizon Data sys. I'm glad I found them as I can finally use RollBack Rx on my Windows 7 systems.
