CB is great. In its feature list. But to this date I could not use and rely on it.
First: it makes an invaluable tool, KeePass, to crash. Please see https://forums.comodo.com/help-cb/cb-makes-keepass-to-crash-t83984.0.html. Ok, maybe KeePass is the guilty part, but I can’t use CB any way before I can get this issue solved. I’m trying to get help on both sides (KeePass / Discussion / Help: Incompatibility - Comodo Backup). For now, I have renamed “C:\Program Files\COMODO\COMMON\ShellExtension.dll” to “C:\Program Files\COMODO\COMMON\ShellExtension.bak.dll” in order to continuing CB testing without crashing KeePass. Of course, CB complains, but I noticed no harm beyond that.
Second: CB has its own problems. I never was able to mount a CB backup as a virtual drive. Never. I’ve tried it on two different machines, Win Vista Ultimate 32-bit and Win 7 Professional 64-bit, both as clean as possible. So I can’t use CB to make “disk, partitions and mbr” backups, since they don’t allow me to do a partial restore, and I can’t mount the disk backup in order to browse on it and find the desired files. By the way, renaming “C:\Program Files\COMODO\COMMON\ShellExtension.dll” has nothing to do with it. I’ve tested it. I am forced to make “files and directories” backup. I can’t mount them either, but at least they allow me to do selective restores.
The outcome: I can’t trust CB. If it can be so buggy on lateral features, how can I trust that it will do my backup right and keep it safe?
Any comments will be welcome.
