Knowledgebase : Rollback Rx Home Edition

RollBack Rx Home Edition has the ability to take up to 7 snapshots. This includes the "Installation Snapshot" which is taken automatically by RollBack Rx Home Edition during installation.

The next 6 snapshots can either be taken automatically by RollBack Rx Home Edition's preconfigured "Daily@FirstBoot" scheduled task, or manually by the user.

This is the same for either taking the snapshots through the RollBack Rx Home Edition subconsole or within Windows.

If you would like to have the ability to take unlimited snapshots and create new scheduled tasks, check out RollBack Rx

No, RollBack Rx Home Edition cannot be deployed to multiple machines from a central location as it does not have a Remote Management Console nor does it come with the configuration file required to perform this. 

However, RollBack Rx Home Edition can be used on multiple machines, but it has to be installed one-by-one.

If you downloaded RollBack Rx Home Edition using Internet Explorer then you will notice that you cannot run the setup as it will ask you to "Open With".

This happens because Internent Explorer removes the '.exe' extension from the file during the download. 

To fix this just rename the file 'RollBackRxHome' to 'RollBackRxHome.exe' and then run the setup. The installation wizard of RollBack Rx Home Edition will start. 

Alternatively - you can use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to download RollBack Rx Home Edition.

RollBack Rx Home Edition is the freeware version of RollBack Rx Professional.

As such it is limited in features when compared to RollBack Rx Professional. One of those limits is it doesn't have the capability to support multiple partitions, and will only cover the C: drive. 

Any questions and/or comments regarding RollBack Rx Home Edition can be directed to the Community Forum.

 

NOTE: This guide is applicable to Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 users.

On certain occassions some users may find the defaultly implemented scheduled task to take a snapshot at the first boot of the day is not functioning. More often than not this is not a bug, and the most common cause is due to Windows' Fast Boot feature being enabled, also known as Fast Startup on certain operating systems.

As the name implies Fast Boot/Startup helps your PC start up faster after shutdown. It accomplishes this by not fully shutting down the system and keeping certain pieces of data in a sleep state rather than powered down. While this feature is enabled, the next time the system is loaded up RollBack Rx will not take this as the "first boot of the day", thus not triggering the function. Unfortunately, programs are very literal.

To resolve this issue please disable Fast Boot/Startup on your PC. To do so, please follow these steps.

1. Right-click on the Start button and select Control Panel. In the search bar, please copy this string: Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\System Settings

2. Click on the Change settings that are currently unavailable option at the top.

3. Under Shutdown settings locate the checkbox which states 'Turn on fast startup'. You will want to uncheck that option. Please be sure to also disable the Hibernate feature. Once this is done please click on the Save changes button to save your settings.



Congratulations! You have now disabled Fast Startup and RollBack Rx should work as intended.

However, should the issue persist please contact our Technical Support team by submitting a ticket.

NOTEIf the Turn on fast startup setting is not listed, then Hibernate has been disabled as well as Fast Startup.

RollBack Rx Professional and Home Edition as well as Drive Vaccine and Reboot Restore Rx are all compatible with cloud-based applications such as Dropbox and Google Drive.

Our programs work by protecting the harddrive on the local level. Cloud-based applications are entirely structured around offshoring data onto an external server, most commonly at these companies’ sites.

Any restore done by our program will strictly be to refresh data, drivers, registry entries, etc., only found on the local drive. Therefore any data uploaded to the cloud will be untouched.

RollBack Rx Professional Edition (v11.1) and RollBack Rx Home Edition (v11.1) have changed the way the software handles Baseline Management.

Previously you would have to update your Baseline or restore to it from the Baseline Manager, but Version 11.1 streamlines the Baseline Management process.

Here's how you update your Baseline for either RollBack Rx Home Edition or RollBack Rx Professional Edition (v11.1 and higher)

1) Open up the program and navigate to your Snapshots.

2) Unlock your current Baseline by right-clicking on it and selecting 'Unlock'.

NOTE: By default, your Baseline will be labeled as 'Installation'.



3) Once unlocked, right-click again and delete the snapshot

IMPORTANT: Deleting a snapshot will also delete any and all data contained within that snapshot!

4) Your next snapshot chronologically will become the new Baseline! If there are multiple snapshots before the snapshot that you'd like as your new Baseline, you'll need to delete them as well so that the snapshot that you'd like as your Baseline is the first snapshot chronologically.



IMPORTANT: Deleted snapshots may not immediately reflect free disk space. Run the snapshot defragmenter after deleting snapshots to consolidate and reclaim disk space.
