AX64 Time Machine - a radical, new, imaging/snap shot program
I would like to take a few moments to introduce you to a new imaging/snapshot hybrid program which I feel many of you may find of value. What follows is a portion of a post I made describing the program on another forum < RollBack Rx and AX64 Time Machine - detailed info - Horizon DataSys Community Forums >. I would like to mention that I have no connection with the developer of the program except as a VERY happy customer.
Thank you for your time and I hope you will find this of value.
AX64 is an IMAGING program with a number of significant differences from others on the market. In some ways its like your typical imaging program but it has some revolutionary features. Like many imaging programs it will first create a BASELINE image and then it will create subsequent INCREMENTAL images. INCREMENTALS are of the active HDD surface changes since the most recent BASELINE or INCREMENTAL image. This gives the application the ability to return the system to any image point in time.
The main feature which makes AX64 different from other imaging applications is its speed. If your able to get into your system, that is, boot into Windows, it can return you to any image or "snapshot" (BASELINE or INCREMENTAL) significantly faster than any other imaging program on the market. All of the other imaging programs will restore the entire back-up set required to get you to your selected point in time. This process can take a significant amount of time depending on how large your protected disk data (OS and data) is.
AX64, uses a unique technology which only requires the restoration of the information that has changed since the point in time being restored to, that is, the difference between HERE <where you are at present> and THERE <the point in time you are returning to>) this means that the restoration process is very fast.
If your system is unBOOTABLE, then AX64 will function like any other imaging application by restoring the BASELINE and all the needed INCREMENTAL snapshots to return the system to the required point in time.
AX64 can be set to enable automatic snapshots to be taken hourly. These snapshots are merged on a schedule to prevent the back-up set from getting too large. In addition you can create a manual snapshot any time you wish. You can also manually delete snapshots (from within AX64) and the snapshot data will automatically be merged into the next snapshot in the set.
Another excellent feature is the ability to access any file from a snapshot simply by clicking on the snapshot from within AX64 and then navigating to the file in question. The file can then be copied or dragged and dropped where necessary. In addition to this feature snapshots can be mounted as virtual drives if necessary.
Finally, AX64 is EXTREMELY easy to use. The developer has specifically created a program that is easy for anyone, from complete computer novice to serious geek, to setup and forget.
Tech support is by far the best I have ever encountered. There is a free 30 day trial and the program is priced at $39.95 for a single licence. A family pack, which allows the program to be used on up to 4 PCs in the same household is available for $64.95
