    "Saved my life more than once"

    April 30, 2011   |   By paulsilvan2

    Version: AyRecovery Pro 6

    Pros

    1. Backs up system with a snapshot in only a couple of seconds.
    2. Take a snapshot before any software install then you can restore system if new software f***'s up your system
    3. Can even restore system if it won't boot!

    Cons

    Sometimes defrags snapshots when rebooting the system. If you have a lot of snapshots then this can take a long time.

    Summary

    A life saver!
    I am a computer repair tech and wish that all of my customers had this software installed on their systems. I have windows 7 64bit installed on my quad core Gateway and have had absolutely no problems with this software slowing down the boot or hogging resources. The only problem is that once in a while it defrags the snapshots on boot without asking permission first. The process can take a long time if there are a lot of snapshots. Fortunately you can delete old snapshots manually and individually to keep the number down. Exercise caution when doing this as you can't restore your system with a snapshot that has been deleted.
    I have, on occasion, installed software which has rendered my system unbootable. With AyRecovery you can revert to immediately before the bad software was installed even if you cannot boot (if you took a manual snapshot of your system before the installation)! If you forgot to take a snapshot, one is taken for you automatically at regular intervals.
    I got a free 1 year trial of this software from giveawayoftheday.com and have used it to restore my system on many occasions. Now that the trial is up I will purchase the software for $49. I recommend that everyone does.

    "Don't do it !!!!"

    July 01, 2010   |   By sdwise

    Version: AyRecovery Pro 6

    Pros

    Are there any?

    Cons

    Too many to list

    Summary

    Like the other reviewers, this program took over my system like a nasty virus. Boot time slowed to a crawl. I am still trying to resolve lingering problems after uninstalling. Unless you enjoy the challenge of troubleshooting your computer, don't install this under any circumstance.

    "AVOID, AVOID, AVOID"

    May 29, 2010   |   By remotesolutions

    Version: AyRecovery Pro 6

    Pros

    Can't find any.

    Cons

    Install and uninstall takes forever. Makes your PC very very slow. Make your PC booting time to 10 min. After uninstall Windows Restore command disabled. What a nightmare.

    Summary

    Make your PC's boot time to 10-15 Min. Very head bootup. Tried restore the system after 45 days, error msg said no systems to restore. Uninstalled, now Win System restore function was totally messed with this programs BIOS change. Worthless nightmare. STAY AWAY!
