    I meant trying software, etc... & reverting back to clean state will be easy & fast.
    Does Macrium restores in few secs to a min?

    We "Clone" there is no need for restoring when I can "Hot swap" or beboot faster than a restore.
    The "restore" is not needed ;)

    Depends on your drives(backup drive and restoring drive) speed and used space that was you made a backup. Especially in the free version that it has to restore everything and not only changes. On hdd it take 70gb of backup take ~30-40min and on the ssd ~10. Really depends on what you are restoring and your disks.

    @_CyberGhosT_ I actually restore i don't swap the drives(do image backup not clone). The backup drive never stays connected to the pc except when i am doing a backup/restore.
    It's really easier to keep multiple versions this way because if i did it like you i would need 10 identical ssd which i can't afford.

    Yeah "Hot swap"
    many times some Macrium users leave the cloned drive plugged in and only require a short reboot to access the clone.
    For security reasons mine in kept in a fire safe beside my desk so add 10 sec for me to hot swap the drive ;)

    Desktop, not so sure about a laptop, but I imagine for the right price you may be able to find a laptop that
    facilitates hot swapping. I would hate to see the price tag for a feature like that on a laptop though.
    All it would need is fast access to the HDD, like a pop out drawer like they have for the CD drive. In fact I imagine there are Hot swaps for Laptops.

    You should go to cloning, you only need one spare HDD or SSD, I make a full clone and store it, I store the original and boot to the
    clone that way I know for sure if I have a failier that I will be able to boot. It requires less drives, and fewer software tools, and the
    need for the fickle process of restoring anything.

    With Macrium, rollback is just not needed, it creates more work,
    and is redundant, back to what I said earlier.

    But i have multiple backups that i use to test things. All the software i test are on an image and i just restore that when i want to continue testing. Sure it takes 10 more minutes this way i do it but meh what can i do.
    If i had a few ssd i would do it your way. Maybe when prices drop in good old EU, now prices of good ssd went up the last year.
    Even if i had 1 more ssd i would do it your way and keep the images on the other. I just can't do hdd anymore i get mad.

    I knew ShvFI doesn't do clone (laptop) & takes app 30 mins to restore for him:)rollback was a suggestion for regular use (app 1 min to clean state) & macrium for occasional use (app 30 mins to clean state);)

    I haven't tried Macrium. I know its good. RDP restore feature (Pro feature), do you know how fast is RDP restore?

    Right, but at least you see the efficiency of having the solution sitting there "pre-made"
    and no restoring necessary. But yeah I get your point and what your doing from the testing angle :)

    Obviously yours is way better and faster. If i could do it i would for sure.
    Atm i can't do a new desktop so the new laptop i will get soonish would have 2 drives. If it wasn't for all those hospital bills i would have had it already.

    I Alpha & Beta software a lot, I just do it straight to the drive seeing I have a
    fast viable solution on hand. I can always just reboot to a fresh up to date clone
    and keep chugging along.
