    What's better than Windows System Restore?

    How about this? The Freeware ‘Home’ version of Rollback Recovery software from Horizon DataSys.
    Horizon DataSys Corporation is a privately held software company headquartered in Blaine, Washington which develops, publishes, and distributes branded computer software applications specializing in end-point PC management, OS integrity, and instant restore.
    Download the program here:
    From a customer:
    Because windows system restore sucks. It will only rescue you about 70% of the time. Plus system restore is windows dependent. If your core OS is really hosed system restore can't help you.

    This software loads higher than windows and can restore no matter how bad the OS is hosed because it's not OS dependent.

    It will restore from MBR problems, Partition problems, etc.

    Windows system restore is false security in my book. I have known so many people to think system restore would solve and issue and they used it as a backup method. When it failed and they had no other backup of their data they lost everythng.

    Same goes for RollBack RX though it's not a replacement for a good backup strategy but it can save you when you are traveling and have no access to your backups.
    One of the best parts, it can restore on a vm too.
