Do you want that Comodo Time Machine continue to be developed?

Yes, please, save and keep the technology on.
No. It's not necessary, I'll use whatever Microsoft make for Windows 8.
Never mind, I use other product (concurrence).

Even if i had bad "memories" with CTM (the well known bug that corrupted my laptop's MBR and could not boot anymore),i'm still using it and with all my heart i'm telling you guys,that i cannot imagine my laptop without CTM.I'm uninstalling it every few months for defragging,reinstall and move on.
So,please,don't let this project die.It's very important,because it's about security after all,isn't it?
Thank you Comodo for all the free stuff i have from you. :love:
Wake up!...It's time to dream again..

Years ago, about 5-6, I was using something called Norton GoBack which provided CTM and RollBack RX-like functionality. With the advent of Vista it was no longer compatible, and RB RX had bugs of its own. I've since replaced it with Norton Ghost, relying on weekly backups should anything go very wrong. However, I miss the functionality of GoBack since Ghost doesn't even come close to its flexibility.

I have been keeping an eye on the CTM software and I am really interested in using it. However, I am aware of the depth of issues it could cause in case it bugs out, and reports of entire drives' data lost and especially problems with Win7 x64 are keeping me from trying it out.

PLEASE continue to develop this program, to test it on multiple, diverse platforms, and to mature it to the point where it becomes a truly solid, trustworthy piece of software. I've been yearning for this functionality for a long time now!

I have very serious doubts that Win8's new SR functionality can even compare to a complete file-level restore which is indeed, as the name suggests, literally taking the computer back in time.

Thanks. Seems logic. Melih could come here and drop his opinion ;)
Thanks Shaun. That's a question for Melih.

We haven't decided to drop CTM yet guys...

We just want bit more information so that our developments can go towards whats most useful for end users. No point in reinventing the wheel if its already there...

Thanks Melih for join here.
I really think the Microsoft business is OS and Office... Other things are for other companies. And they do much better.

You say you do not abandon CTM... but, indeed, no development in the last months...

By the way Melih

Comodo Internet Security - CIS: Windows firewall and MSE.
Comodo Dragon - CD: Internet Explorer
Comodo Disk Encryption - CDE: BitLocker
Comodo System Cleaner - CSC: Disk Cleaner
Comodo Backup - CB: Windows Backup
Comodo Programs Manager - CPM: Windows Program (Control Panel)

Which "wheel" we're talking about?
And we're talking about Microsoft only... There are tons of other companies producing "wheels"...

lol, that was so funny
melih comments had double sense XD

by the way, i also like a lot CTM, and im sure the new "wheel" from MS will not even get comparison with CTM,
we know the "window backup" dont have any function like differencial backup or conpress and even more basic functions
we know MSE is the antivirus with less detection ratio than any other
we know bitlocker only is available on ultimate or similar edition of windows, and miss some functions
we know disk cleaner only clean self microsoft trash
we know windows firewall is useless

i think all that is more than enough proof of what the microseft system restore is and will be

A word I'd like to say regarding " Comodo " is it's One of a few companies whose objective is more than " Commercial Profitabilities " ~ It has a genuine heart and care for the ever-increasing population of computer users worldwide ! !

Another company that has this attribute is Avast. I do appreciate the values of Both of these Companies Very Much.

p.s. " Let users have more Wheels to choose from !! " 
" When someone gives you a horse to ride for free, don't feed it with gas instead of grass, and be grateful ! "         " Folks, pls. SHOW your efforts by reading related Topics on the CTM forum and trust what you read. "

Ok, Melih.
I was trying to "force" you to written exactly what you've wrote.
"We know what system restore is..." :)

[at]kinemitor: the same as to Melih :)
[at]James: long live to wheels :)

I voted for the first option.

CTM is something that comodo should try to invest their resources on; it's innovative and something for the future!

I use, have tried it on a virtual machine a couple of time and my conclusion is that it will save a hell of a time and frustration.

even if microsoft develop a perfert system restore to new state, CTM is still needed
restore computer from problem is only a single feature of CTM, im not always making my pc not boot, i dont use CTM only for restore from problems, that's only secondary utility and im sure most ppl who use CTM here have it no only to restore but for

test programs, (in many cases VMachine is not enough),
roll back configurations changes,
delete any usage traces* (no program can do it better than a "time machine")
if lastest installed programs are causing performance issues i can get rip of then easily

After so long that microsoft will think about doing this, but the MTC should continue because it is always best to prevent, that microsoft will make that restorative wrong. hehehe
