I can do that with 2.6 but not with 2.8 CTM version.
Good to know. Why do they remove this feature then?

2.8.155286.178 continues to have a bug in the scheduling options.
Workday is checked, the hours are grayed out, the scheduled tasks does not run.

Tech I saw your screenshot and you don't have a number of hours set, so I don't think you have anything to run with that box empty.

At corttex,

You have gained nothing, although it may have felt better.
A baseline is always 0 size reported.
The concurrent Snapshots size reported show the size in difference from that starting point.

That starting point or Baseline size on disk is always equal to what windows saw on the disk,
at that point in time.

I hope that makes sense.

Bad
I'm only say with v.2.6 defragmentation of system partititon was possible without uninstalling CTM, with v.2.8 is not. If you say that is illusion - OK, but take back that illusion.

Isn't it the minutes when it runs?

Yes seems you are right, but the default on mine is 1 so I thought maybe it would not run if set to 0.   Mine seems ok but I have not restored yet.

Makes no sense... zero or 1 is the same...

Isn't fragmentation a big deal? it is to me... Performance wise I have always seen a heavily fragmented drive as a huge performance killer... What does everyone do with CTM they just let the drive get out of control and say who cares?

The fragmentation done by Windows System Restore isn't better. In my own tests, Windows is much worse than CTM on managing the restore points (than the snapshots).
The drive is far from being out of control. The performance issues occur mostly due to pagefile.sys and the registry hives, not all the files. Rollback RX allows defragmentation of third parties. Maybe we can expect this for CTM in the future.

Officially updated to the latest version which means uninstalling the older version first. After uninstalling old version defrag was done on XP and Win 7. CTM had been installed for over six months of HEAVY usage. XP was five percent fragmented and Win 7 two percent. I've also run Eaz-Fix Pro in the past and CTM is on par with it as far as keeping the drive well maintained in my opinion. Defrag with these types of restore apps in my opinion are not needed

Mine on Windows 7 was 500 files over more than 100.000 files.
The best for performance is allowing registry defrag and pagefile.sys (with in my system is big enough and fully defragmented).

Does anyone know of any possible future problems with deleting or renaming the comodo.theme? Doing this allows quite a bit of my native skin to be used in CTM GUI. I like the red skin theme but I like my msstyle better.

We strongly recommend use the latest version 2.8 , the 2.6 may cause serious problem in some extreme cases.
