    rollback rx and macrium reflect


    which of the backup do you prefer in your opinions? usually i want to use it when if i installed something and turns out i want to uninstall it and just go with restore so that nothing left behind.

    Also for Macrium Standard version but might be a bit too radical a move to do it just for uninstalling programs, Revo Uninstaller can uninstall programs without leaving "tails" most of the time.

    +1 for Macrium Reflect. In fact, this is exactly what I do when I want to experiment with installing or upgrading something. Only takes a few minutes to do the image backup, and if the install/upgrade goes badly (as they do, sometimes), it only then takes a few minutes to do a total restore.

    Yes, most of the time but for those who install the third party 30 day trial software which they put a Null-embedded key in the registry to mark the expired date then you are out of luck and even Revo Uninstaller cannot clean it. So Macrium is still the best choice.

    By the way, you don't need Macrium Standard Version. Free version is fine.

    lets say you have local c and d drives... you want to restore local c (need to boot in order to restore) does this mean local d could also be affected or be formatted? hope you understand .

    Hey folks,

    Sam here from Horizon DataSys (the developers of RollBack Rx, the PC time machine)!

    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. It's an instant recovery software. 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!
