    Wahahaha...

    This has been answered by TheRollbackFrog in Wilders, anyway. :D
    "Under a Rollback protected system, Rollback does not allow any process to modify its active MBR. If the MBR was modified from outside of that LIVE protected system, Rollback and its snapshots will be toast."

    How to manually defrag with Rollback Rx?

    Should I select the latest snapshot & defrag?

    And if I delete snapshots...I should still perform Rollback Rx defrag?

    And does creating a new baseline Rollback Rx automatically defrags or not? Coz after creating new baseline if I analyze with Windows defrag it mention % fragmented.

    I haven't used Rollback in a while -- does it backup all internal hard disks, or all partitions on the primary hard disk, or only the C drive?

    Premium version can protect all drives. Free can only do C.

    So if you install premium version, at default settings it will back up all drives?

    Not at default. Default only protects C so you need to mess with the settings on install.

    Thanks. So it turns out you have to do custom install, and that's how you select the extra drives to be protected.

    Default install protect all the partitions.
    Use Custom install to check/uncheck the partitions.

    Do you have more than one hard drive? I am guessing that you have one hard drive with multiple partitions.
    I did a default install, and it only protected C.
    I reinstalled, chose custom, and only then I could add protection for the partitions on my second hard drive.

    The only time I installed Rollback Rx it completely screwed up my PC, never tried it again. :(

    Yep, one hard drive with partitions.
    Ohk.. so you need to choose Custom install to protect all the hard drives.

    If it was older than dirt, it was likely an issue with Secure Boot, which has been patched. Do you use Bitlocker Frogboy?

    Yeah, custom install.

    I stopped using Rollback because when I restored snapshots or I uninstalled it, sometimes the results were imperfect. I had disk errors and software issues. Macrium Reflect is much slower and laborious, but more reliable.

    I used to have those issues back in the 10.3 to 10.5 days. Do you remember which version you used? I haven't had those issues with the newer builds
