      These days we computer users are always looking for new and better Hardware and Software.The trouble with this is that not everything is cracked up to be what they say it is. Software especially.We have all had the same situation, we buy a bit of software that we think it will be the bees knees and what happens ? Its a pile of doo doo.Buggy etc. The worst of them screw up your system and even though you uninstall the thing your system is not working as it was prior to installing the aforementioned piece of software. This is where GOBACK comes in. And boy does it do so with a vengeance. As the advert from the telly says "It does exactly what it says on the box". Go back in time and restore your system prior to installing the buggy software. With a minimum of fuss and an extreme ease of use this piece of software is a must have. You can restore deleted files even complete disks to days prior to when you hit a problem. How far back you can go depends on how much space you allocate to the program on installation. Go back minutes hours even. There are other options aswell which deserve mention.One of these is create a shadow disk of a time in the past.Use this function, get whatever you need of of this disk then just tell GOBACK to discard the shadow disk and you are back to the present.With whatever it was you wanted back saved on your harddrive. The program actually sits between the BIOS load up and Windows and when the machine is booting up it appears and asks wether you have a problem with your PC.You have a few seconds to answer and if you just leave it the PC will continue to boot up as normal. So you can see that obviously it can even help if the machine is failing to boot up because of some software glitch.Just hit the spacebar at bootup and you have the option of going back to before you started having a problem. I have been using GOBACK now for over a year now and its more than justif
      ied the price I paid for it.It has saved me hours.Being that I am an inveterate tinker with the system GOBACK is a godsend. Finally, if you havn't got it yet and you like installing demos and often are installing new software then I would recommend you go out and buy it ASAP. I guarantee that you won't be dissappointed.

        I have only used GoBack for a few months but I wouldn’t be without it now. (It came with my Evesham Micro and wasb y Wildfire but the latest version is from Adeeaptec). It enables you to restore your computer to the way it was at some date in the past. It can also restore a deleted file or a previous version of a program. It does this by taking snapshots at intervals and storing them. To do this by default it takes up ten percent of the hard drive. It does not appear to slow down the system and I find it very easy to use. If like me you are always trying out demos or programs that at best clutter up the place or at worst mess up your system you need this. Windows Millennium will do something similar but until then GoBack gets my vote.
