Norton GoBack Alternative? XXClone Alternative

  rotormota 18:59 16 May 2009


Is there a free Norton GoBack available? That is to say with the facility to restore before Vista boots up.

Also any free alternative to XXClone disk cloning software? I have it on my XP machine but it is apparently not compatible with Vista.

Is your computer and your data worth about £20? If so, you should buy Acronis True Image, and an external hard drive on which to keep your Acronis backups - you will then have no further worry about losing any of your precious data.

actually there is something almost similar - Erunt, but as Technotiger mentioned, you should think if the data on your computer has any value to your.

Norton Gobacks' file recovery features are not as granular as they could be, though they mostly get the job done. Also you can try other alternatives.

Last week I have found something better though. Its called Rollback Rx. This software does everything that go back does, but it is super faster, and you can create up to 60,000 restore points.

nontek, sorry, I noticed that only after replying. Someone should close this thread then, maybe automatically...

Fair enough - only the originator of the thread can put the Green tick to close it.

messages older than xx days should be automatically closed, my 2 cents
