Chicago, IL (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- RollBack Rx V9 has made some significant changes from our previous version 8.1. In version 8.1 we had integrated a Drive imaging application for clients that wanted to be able to have true hardware disaster recovery. It was known as the "Drive Image" feature in Version 8.1. As we've continued to develop both the RollBack Snapshot engine and the Drive Cloning capabilities; we realized that the Drive Cloning project was becoming quite large. We need to continue to develop the product further to make it a fair disk imaging competitor to products such as Ghost, Acronis and the like. In version 9 we've come to that crossroad where we needed to "cut the Umbilical cord" from the Drive Image module.
In RollBack Rx Version 9.x we have separated the Drive Cloning capabilities and introduced it as a new product "Drive Cloner Rx". It will complete head on with products such as Ghost, Acronis and other hard disk imaging and cloning products that are available. We will continue to grow this product by adding features while maintaining a low cost point for our clients that need a cost effective hard drive imaging application. With RollBack Rx V9 we've made it easy for our large educational and corporate clients to use our Remote Management Console. We've removed the separate pricing of our "Enterprise" version of the software and now provide the RMC as a free add-on. All RollBack Rx users that have more than 3 networked PC's can now use the RMC to remotely manage their PC's. We have also made some significant changes to make RollBack Rx quicker to boot up and work with Windows Vista, both 32 and 64 bit.
Note: As with all updates and upgrades to RollBack Rx - All previous versions of RollBack Rx need to be uninstalled prior to the installation of RollBack Rx V9. During the uninstall process you will be left with a single snapshot - the state you would like your computer to be in once RollBack Rx is uninstalled. You will therefore, lose all current snapshots when uninstalling. View our Knowledge base article on upgrading RollBack Rx.
