The issue is just about TRIM, RX said they support it, while experimented users said no it doesn't.

I just asked the following questions to Horizon by email...

FIRST QUESTION

Just to be clear, is it only the snapshots that are encrypted ? If I want to transfer my personal files onto a clean installation of Windows, will they be encrypted if I put them on my hard drive first and then install Rollback, OR to encrypt them do I need to install Rollback first and then transfer all my personal files (about 90GB worth of data).

The answer i got from Horizon was this...

No, it's the drive itself. Doesn't matter, either way they're encrypted.

Does anyone know if this is actually correct ?

SECOND QUESTION

Is it still a good idea to un-install Rollback every once in a while to keep the SSD fully optimised ? And is there a way of saving snapshots on an external hard drive so i can re-load them later.

The answer i got from Horizon was this...

Doesn't make a difference either way. No, you can't save or move the snapshots to any place aside from the sector level of the primary drive.


Would people also agree with this ?


Thanks for your help and comments.

Avoid to use RX on a SSD drive, RX doesn't allow the TRIM function.
now you have the turn off tray icon option, so you can TRIM your SSD (reboot first) but it will merge all your snapshots.

IMPORTANT EDIT for the Anniversary Update:

Disable Secureboot before installing RX, their drivers doesn't fill the requirement imposed by Microsoft
work with securebooot now.
