How large will one snapshot be? Could it be up to a few gig in space or more?

On an installation with 10.8 GB HDD space used, the snapshot appears to be Less than 500 MB.

this f... program blew up my computer, impossible to start again by any mean restore ghost etc... i had to reinstall win7 64bits twice before i could finally resore an image and i dont even know if the system is stable now.TOTAL : 6 HOURS LOST AND MORE TO LOOSE TO REINSTALL ALL PROGRAMS.

Why CMT is similar to AyRecovery, the OEM of AyRecovery?

has never worked

"install trouble, please reinstall"

game over.

I installed on Vista Home Preamium 32 bitit corrupted system restore and norton anti virus had to end up reinstlling Vista and programs THINK TWICE ABOUT DOWNLOADING THIS

XP SP3 NEW Installation, Comodo Installs perfectly.
Restore works awesome, i test deleted my office installation and restored. It recovered my programs, if it can do this, file recovery should be cake.
Great feature to restore after each reboot.
I am currently the Network admin/tech support guy for Chinook regional library,
I have been using windows STEADY STATE. I HATE HATE HATE that program, and it does not work with windows 7. WTF.

This program has been an answer to many prayers.

Thanks a million,


See the CTM forum. Beware uninstalling it. Just disable it. and get your full clone (esaeus. ultimate boot cd-- free)

It has a very bad habit of misreading hte amt of space. Forum says old version used to allow 30-60 and more snapshots. I can tell you-- after a few, it tells you there is no more room. no way to re-allocate more space to the snapshot.
begins to corrupt windows, as other people have commented.
I had 50 gb each avail on C and D.

Worse-- IT DOES NOT protect your external drives! and it will go in there and corrupt the data. the manual is skimpy. there is no in depth coverage of what is best to do. If i leave my backup Tb drive out of the loop-- sleep the machine and then do a restart: I'm stuck with CTm having wiped my backup C files (even tho the top level folder was renamed!

Stay away from this program. It is incompetent.
EVen on the CTm forum-- the techs stay away. It may be an orphan.

Backup really important files onto a CD before you work to get rid of this program.

I'm doing this now. grief. wish me luck. and good luck to you
