First off, I just want to say that CTM is really annoying me right now, it has actually made my life miserable and in hell since 2 weeks ago, where i tried to update to a newer version and it totally ■■■■■■■ up my system and messed up the bootmgr etc, so i had to reformat. And NOW, i’m having another problem just as bad, but slightly better.
Before i go on, I just want to point out that besides using CTM, I also create a system restore checkpoint every now and then to keep my system regularly backed up in case i need to restore to an earlier backup.
You might ask, why will i use system restore if i’m using CTM already? The answer is simple. CTM seems to only let you create a maximum of 5 snapshots, for some reason, it uses up space WAAAY too fast, but at the same time, it doesn’t. I have a 1TB hardrive, but CTM shows that i only have about 200MB of freespace left to use, which doesn’t make sense since i have tons of freespace left. I’m not the only one having this problem either, and i installed the latest CTM as well.
So anyway, since i can’t keep creating snapshots using CTM, that’s why i also use system restore as well.
Now here’s the problem, i don’t know if it’s an incompatibility or not but i created a system restore checkpoint today, i shut off my PC and take a rest. I come back later and turn on my PC, and somehow the bootmgr is ■■■■■■■ up, it keeps taking me to the system repair window, and even then i couldn’t use any of my system restore checkpoints as it showed an error that i won’t get into here as it’s irrelevant. Anyway i tried using last known good configuration, nothing works, it won’t boot into Windows at all, basically it’s a ■■■■■■■ up MBR record, everything i do just won’t fix it, i ran sfc /scannow and chkdsk and those don’t work.
So, i then decide to use CTM which i was reluctant to since the snapshots were older than the ones i created using system restore. Anyway when i got into the console, it only showed the very first snapshot i took after installing it, it was the snapshot with the oldest date, and all the newer snapshots weren’t there at all.
Also, i don’t see the CTM loading prompt screen anymore, i.e the screen that shows just before it shows your windows boot screen with the logo and the loading bar. That’s the screen that shows the word “Home” with the blue loading bar, and if you press it, it takes you to the sub-console where you can restore, compact, uninstall etc.
So ya, I dunno what the problem is but i’m SURE it’s CTM’s bugs or w/e. I’ve had all sorts of problems ever since i installed CTM, i’ve never had all this problem before and other windows problems before i had this installed, but now i keep getting problems ESPECIALLY with ■■■■■■■ up systems and boot records etc, i either have to restore to a very very early backup, or reformat my PC again.
I’ve suggested and asked this before but sadly, the support of this forum is lacking. Comodo makes great products but now i’m really starting to wonder, do they actually listen and help its users? There’re tons of other questions unanswered aside from my previous ones, and i hope SOMEONE can really read this one.
So, my suggestion is, create an option to let users save their snapshots on another hardrive or USB, or maybe create a partition dedicated to storing backed up snapshots only, or maybe sync their snapshots online or something using an account.
OR, at least tell us where the snapshot locations are stored at, i asked this but never got an answer. It would be easier and better if we can gain more control of the snapshots of our system in case something like this problem happens, and it obviously happened to me where i got fully ■■■■■■■ over.
