I wonder after a crash if anyone has used an Acronis image to restore everything OK.  I guess that's a whole other thread topic!

I like Acronis, but if CTM worked correctly everything could be more easily restored without having to go get the external HDD.

OK, I just did something stupid: I reinstalled CTM.  The next day my laptop flickered and rebooted itself while I was typing in Word.  Upon reboot I got an disk error message.  It eventually did come on.  I went back to an earlier snapshot and it did the same thing.

I tried Acronis (System and C:\) and it' wouldn't work.  I uninstalled CTM successfully.

Puzzled why Acronis wouldn't restore though.

...Upon reboot I got an dick error message...
Hi dagrev ,

1st, this Software is not what you need it is a complete disaster ... read the section and comment here & there

Then please fix a typo, if you want , but rather not :
...Upon reboot I got an dick error message...
Yes, that is definitely a "dick- error"  ;D - could be called "disk" ... but the terminology is correct

Uninstall CTM  and forget about it . Then all dicks=disks will stay hard & safe  ;)  Cheers!

p.s. try this free very fast & reliable Software Macrium Reflect FREE Edition

I have now tried on a WM machine and it works fine. I made a snapshot after I installed it. I install CIS Complete and I tried to restore the computer when CIS wasn't installed and it worked. I haven't seen CTM before win boots. I forgot to mention that I installed CTM 2.8 (at least the stable release).

Comodo... please don't let this software die. The idea is great and a great software. The GUI can be improved.

P.S: This is my opinion and no fanboy comment.

Ok, so I have had only one issue with CTM and it did corrupt the system drive on my home PC, however, I was 'testing' the product and making many changes to the config, you know, "just to see what it would do."  I wasn't surprised.  At the same time, I used it on some of the test laptops at work and none of them had any issue.  I think the main point is to make sure you have plenty of room on the drive and keep good backups.  The latter is a best practice for ANY computer. I have to say I see WAY WAY too many people say they installed a program like this and 'lost everything.'  Everything, but your backup'ed data, right???

I think CTM is the future of restore point system recovery, so I would be very disappointed to hear that development had ceased and/or the application was discontinued.   I am VERY interested in incorporating it into Comodo Endpoint Security Manager.  I know this idea is mentioned in the CESM documentation and literature. 

From what I read on the forums, the CTM is not compatible with Comodo Disk Encryption either, which is fine... no worries about that.  Time Machine would have much more value than Disk Encryption anyway... as far as I am concerned.  I would only add disk encryption on laptops that are off-network anyway.  A strong password and a retention policy (no corporate data on the laptop) would be a better use as well as hardware encrypted flash or hdd drives (ie. Apricorn Padlock) for data.

So, to sum it up.  There is a significant niche in the market for CTM and I would like to see it developed further and definitely integrated in to CESM.

Lets hope you are wrong. I find CTM very good and an product that can safe a pc if it woks as it should. The only little issue that I have seen is that the CTM Consol is not opening correctly; while it's loading reindex or something like that it and 73% windows asks me to start windows normally or to start the reparation guide (or whatever it's called)

Comodo and Melih... keep CTM alive.

CTM is not a toy.
It interacts very deeply in the operational system.
So, it's not a matter of GUI or easy things.
It requires a lot of development and what we're seeing it is going abandonware.
Version 2.9 Beta is out for months.
The developers disappeared from forums.
Is it the Comodo way of development? :'(

As Tech points out, all signs at this time do point to abandonware.

With the demand for such a program I would throw some money into it and then charge a small fee for the software to recover the costs of getting it right.  Sell it for $30 and you would be half the price of Rollback (when it's not on sale for half off).

I gave up on CMT and bought RBRx half off and have had no real problems (it's not perfect either--but nothing major thus far like with CMT).  I'd go back if CMT got it right and got it stable.

You only have to browse old forum history to find the answer is yes, many products just seem to be abandoned.  Then discontinued.  :-\
