    Any feedback on this ROLLBACK Program?


    I run Windows 10, I use Macrium Reflect, however, this seems good to rollback Windows 10 quickly, any feedback on this?

    Plenty of it here: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threa...376992/page-17 aside from what feedback you may get here. Because you use Windows 10 AND Macrium Reflect, the link is to the most recent page of that thread. All I would say, without intending to put Rollback RX down at all, is caveat emptor.

    What makes you be aware of cautious of it?

    Because its low level drivers and use of sectors outside of the file system means it may be fine if it is your only backup system but you need to be aware of how to use Macrium Reflect and other imaging solutions alongside Rollback RX or you may be in for some nasty surprises or, at the very least, find that you'll have to do some repairs to have a system bootable and Rollback snapshots in tact after an image restore. That page 17 I linked you to, and preceding pages, can give you a more comprehensive look at other problems I haven't mentioned.

    I haven't used Rollback RX and haven't seen much discussion of it here at TenForums. That's why I gave you the link I did and, because I have tracked some Rollback RX discussions at the referred to forum in the past, think you will find a good chunk of the feedback you were looking for.

    By no means am I trying to take away from the value of any feedback you may receive from other members here at TenForums.

    I will just stick with Macrium Reflect

    I am a bit worried RX may mess up my SSD and TRIM?

    What are your thoughts on this?

    ..
    Exactly the same as yours. Although I haven't used Rollback, I do have passing familiarity with it as a long time member at Wilders'.

    I emailed the company and asked them if it DISABLES TRIM and will see what they say :P

    I don't feel comfortable to ever use Rollback RX if it disables TRIM as I think TRIM is important for longevity and reliability of my SSD?

    I thought I'd chime in as I use Rollback Rx Pro on my computer, and the Home Edition on my girlfriend's PC.

    Rollback isn't a perfect program as I'm sure you're aware of. The company touts it as an all-in-one recovery solution when in reality it will help you recover from things like viruses, malware, etc. If you had a hardware failiure or a corrupted bios then Rollback goes.

    In terms of Rollback doing what it can do, it does it very well. I've had the program recover my system from Cryptolocker and a few other dangerous situations.

    As long as you remember that it can't be your only recovery tool, then you'll be fine.

    As for SSD's. I've had an SSD for years and Rollback has never negatively affected it. There's a slight perception problem as Rollback sort of just sanctions off a portion of your hard drive so in TRIM's eyes it sees that your drive has less space available then there really is. It's a preference thing if this bothers you but it doesn't bother me too much personally.

    But if RollBack DISABLES TRIM, what will that do to the SSD eventually?

    I'm not 100% certain but I don't think it disables the trim. From what I know it works.
