  • Windows 10 and Horizon DataSys Software

    UPDATE: Due to popular demand, we will be releasing a Windows 10 compatible build by mid-October, 2015. This is an in-build update and will be available for free for all 10.0 and above owners of RollBack Rx and/or Gold Support/Platinum Support users.

    ATTENTION ALL USERS LOOKING TO UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10

    Microsoft’s newest operating system (OS) Windows 10 is out.

    On July 29, 2015 the new OS has been made available to the public and Microsoft has promised all Windows 7 and 8 owners the option to upgrade for free within one year of its release. That’s an enticing offer, and we anticipate many of our users will want to upgrade in that time.

    However, it’s important to note officially RollBack Rx Professional and Home versions 10.3, Drive Vaccine version 10.4, Drive Cloner Rx 5.1, and Reboot Restore Rx are not compatible with Windows 10. A new update is needed for all our programs which we are planning to release as our next major upgrade to bring us up to RollBack Rx version 11, Drive Vaccine version 11, and with Drive Cloner Rx’s upgrade to be announced soon after those are complete.

    Our developers, after looking into the Windows 10 Preview and anticipating the necessary changes to make RollBack Rx compatible, are predicting a six-month period after Windows 10′s release to have it up and running. Therefore the goal for us is to have our software fully functional with a redesigned GUI by January, 2016.

    While we understand many of our users will want to use our software on Windows 10 as soon as possible, this timeline is necessary when dealing with a program such as ours as it functions not just on the Windows file level, but the sector level as well. This allows our programs to have tighter security and integral failsafes, but it also means a deeper overhaul when dealing with a new OS to ensure the quality of the product stays intact.

    Until then our users should not install any of our instant recovery software such as RollBack Rx, Drive Vaccine, Drive Cloner Rx, or the Microsoft steadystate alternative Reboot Restore Rx on any Windows 10 machine. While internally initial tests have shown the OS to successfully allow an install, the subsequent use (i.e. taking/loading of snapshots, restoring the LGK in Drive Vaccine, etc.) has varied results.

    If you do plan on upgrading to Windows 10 prior to the release of version 11, you must uninstall our software first.

    This is just amazing. Your developers just looked at a preview build and find it isn't compatible? The preview builds have been out forever and every other software developer has worked out compatibility issues before the final release of Windows 10. Why is HDS so late? It is unconscionable that you ask your paying customers to wait at least 6 months to install their new OS.I say "at least" because we all know HTS ALWAYS misses their release dates. Sometimes by more than 1 year with no announcements.Some of your programs never worked together with Windows 8.1. Why would anyone believe they will ever work together with Windows 10? If you are not in panic mode, you should be.

      i really see NO reason why it should take SO long to get a new version out that completely supports windows 10. i could see no later than the end of october, but january 2016. in that tome microsour could come out with more than one major upgrade to 10.

        Masterblaster is 1,000% correct i've seen over and over again with rollback that it's WELL after the release of the retail versions of windows that working version of rollback FINALLY gets released.

            Sam,

            What is an in-build upgrade?

              This means the Windows 10 compatible build will be labelled RollBack Rx v10.x. Compared to a new build upgrade, next being v11.

              Cheers!

                Hey folks, for the new Windows 10 anniversary update we are recommending to fully uninstall our software, apply the update, then reinstall after.

                If however the update has been applied while our programs are on the drive still, it won't cause a BSOD or make Windows unbootable, but we do recommend uninstalling and then reinstalling the software to start with the latest patch on a clean baseline.

                Cheers!
