    I just wanted to chime in here to clarify some things. First, RollBack Rx and Macrium Reflect are not really competitors, more like companions. Macrium is a great backup solution. RollBack Rx utilizes snapshot technology. They're not to be used one over the other I would say, more in conjuction with each other.

    If you're doing something like testing software and installing things, or visiting some shady websites, or downloading iffy files, then RollBack Rx would be great for its speed here. You would just take a few seconds to select a previous snapshot and go back to it. Problem over!

    If you want any info or want to try out the software a bit, let me know. I'm glad to help.

    Cheers!
    I am not familiar with this software but looks like to be the same as create a system restore point. For what OP wants to do. Free version of Macrium is all he needs.

    By the way. With Macrium, it only took me under 3 minutes to restore Windows since I use SSD for backup/Restore so it is fast.

    Hers's an example:

    Oh, I'm sure Macrium will do what he wants as well. But for simplicity, speed, and results, RollBack Rx can do what he needs in a few seconds.

    It's similar to restore points, but quite a bit more powerful. First, it will take a snapshot of the entire drive - programs, files, etc. Those snapshots exist independently of each other, and are stored on the sector-level of the harddrive and can be accessed and re-loaded, even if Windows fails (via a subconsole that boots before Windows). Ransomware, viruses, etc., will not be able to touch the snapshots as they are outside of Windows, and encrypted. If you want to give it a go, let me know. I'd be glad to set you up with a key.

    Cheers!
