Restore on Reboot Software Alternatives

There have been only a few software on the reboot on restore market that focused on public access computers.

They freeze one state of the PC and restores to that state on every reboot. These programs have been around for a long time, but they haven’t changed much since they first went out, but for a simple restore and reboot program, they get the job done.

In that time several competitors have put out their own versions, often acting as a mirror with equal or fewer features. Programs such as Norton GoBack, Comodo Time Machine, RestoreIT, CleanSlate, and even Microsoft’s own SteadyState (which has been discontinued) all offered their own “freeze” type effect to the drive, but often came up short.

Horizon DataSys’ Reboot Restore Rx leading by far as the main competitor in the restore on reboot market, and while other software remained happy with what they had, HDS took the concept and improved on it.

No more Windows update boot loops. No more thawing just to update. No more extra costs for centralized management. No leaving the MBR exposed to threats.
