To make Comodo Time Machine the ultimate backup system it should have the option to make snapshots onto a CD/DVD drive or an external hard drive.
In the event your hard drive crashes you would install windows on a new drive, then install Comodo Time Machine and then retrieve the snapshot from the CD/DVD drive or external hard drive and be back to the same configuration of your operating system that you had before the hard drive crash.

YES

YES

External hard drive storage of snapshots is, IMHO, a must. Mind you, we would still be up that well know creek without a means of propulsion if the external drive died. ;)

Ewen :-)

Waiting to Support for COMODO Disk Encryption.

I've just installed COMODO Disk Encryption over CTM 2.4 without any WARNING!! :(
After restart.... all my snapshots were corrupted & when I checked my current Snapshots ,windows went to 3 weeks ago. :-[
I had to reinstall Windows 7 x86 and reinstall CTM. but without CDE!
Is it possible that CTM & CDE can work together at next Releases?  :)
Thank You!

Since version 157(the newest version), It became mandatory to input the password when creating user account in CTM. (As you can see the pic above)

I think it's a side effect of fixing the privilege problem.
but i want to make a Guest account. it's secure and convenient to other people who uses my PC.
Could you guys please recover us this feature?
anyway ctm is the best sandbox software ever  ;D ;D

 !ot! virtualization program ranking
1. COMODO TIME MACHINE  ;D ;D ;D
2. Windows Steadystate (not only it can keep the sandboxed data after reboot, but it automatically recovers system when a computer brakes down with bluescreen etc.)
3. Norton Ghost, shadow defender, deepfreeze, etc...

A FAQ about what not to do when CTM is installed.

From reading the forums I understand that using external defragmenting and encrypting programs is a bad idea. Is Winsows' native encryption system (EFS - Encrypting File System) supported or should I decrypt all folders before installing CTM? What other actions can damage MBR (Master Boot Record) or snapshots when CTM is installed? Does anyone use it on production machine? I'm not fond of the whole system backup applications, so I don't do that but I wouldn't like to lose all my data, especially when normally I format my PC like once in a few years.

Is it possible to skin the CTM UI?  It would be nice if there was a choice of colors.  Thanks!
Would like to see this myself. I would prefer the option of no skin an allow it to more match Win 7 msstyle

An option to not have CTM running as an background process. When I need the program I will open it, and I don't care if I have to wait a few seconds extra, but there is not need to use resources on having CTM running in the background all the time. The scheduled tasks could be run by windows task scheduler.

I'm afraid that's not possible - CTM is deeply integrated into system and keeps the track on the disk changes constantly.

I would suggest you focus on bug fixes before adding new abilities. Several install and reboot problem comments. Also BSOD or blank screen lockups.
